JJ Chalmers is most likely to be voted off Strictly Come Dancing this weekend, according to Mirror readers.

In a poll we ran this week, a whopping 47% of you feel JJ and his dance partner Amy Dowden will be next to be booted from the competition and wiped from the leaderboard.

Despite getting 25 points last weekend with their routine – and missing out on the dance-off between Maisie Smith and Caroline Quentin, which Caroline lost – you eagle-eyed viewers think JJ is the least likely celeb to make it to next week.

Poor JJ recently told how he's been living with an agonising leg infection throughout his entire Strictly journey, after it flared up at the site of one of his old war wounds.

  • Strictly's JJ Chalmers battling agonising leg infection – but vows he won't quit show

"Whilst there's a level of pain and sensitivity with it, it's not anything I'm not used to," he told the Mirror on Thursday.

"These are just the genuine side effects of being alive, that's the simplest way I can put it, enduring some level of pain.

"Until it gets to, you know, an unbearable point or a really discomforting point, I'm not going to allow it to stop me doing what I love doing. And right now that's dancing.

"But on the flip side, it might seem quite alarming to people that I've done most of this competition with an infection in my leg but that's just the reality of what happens with this particular piece of shrapnel until they remove it."
