Strictly Come Dancing celebrity Don Warrington has admitted he is worried about getting the boot from the show this weekend.

The veteran actor – who survived the dance-off two weeks ago – told The Sun, “Being in the bottom two isn’t the happiest place to be.”

“I am worried I’ll be there again this week – it’s a real possibility. It depends on how I dance, I will do my best.”

And Don – best known for his role in 70s sitcom Rising Damp – added that he had been putting in some serious practice in a bid to remain in the show.

He and partner Lilia Kopylova have been rehearsing the tango, which he will perform on Saturday’s show, for four hours every day.

However, his efforts may all be in vain if the bookies are anything to go by – for Don is currently favourite to be eliminated this weekend.

Paddy Power are offering odds of 6-4 on him getting the boot, ahead of chef Gary Rhodes at 15-8. John Sergeant and Mark Foster are next in the betting, neck and neck at 4-1 and 5-1.

Rugby star Austin Healy is favourite to be crowned series champion.
