STRICTLY Come Dancing’s Kaye Adams doesn’t have a chance in hell of winning the show if the bookies’ takings are anything to go by.
Ladbrokes told The Sun Kaye, 59, had just £14 staked on her to win the BBC show.
The Loose Women star was third from the bottom of the leader board after last night’s show.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Given the interest, or lack thereof, in Kaye Adams up to this point, a win for the Loose Woman would have to go down as the biggest upset in Strictly betting history.”
Kaye, who danced the Tango to ABBA’s Voulez-Vous with Kai Widdrington, said she had struggled during the first show.
She said last night: “I mucked up lots of the steps, I’m so sorry.

“This man has worked so hard and has been so patient.”
While Kaye may not have the backing of punters at the bookmakers, Kai, 27, has got her back.
He said on the show last night to Kaye: “The times we have got tough in training and you have dusted it off.
“You’re a trooper in training… It’s only a minor mistake.”

Strictly host Claudia Winkleman was quick to give Kaye a boost too, reminding her that the judges said her “line was beautiful”.
Fifteen celebrities took to the dance floor last night and many ended up getting high marks from Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Anton du Beke.
Hamza Yassin and Jowita Przystał, and Will Mellor and Nancy Xu, topped the leaderboard with 34 points.
Will – who played Gaz Wilkinson in Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps – impressed the judges with his Jive routine alongside his professional partner Nancy Xu.
The actor danced to Livin’ La Vida Loca by Ricky Martin, and he scored a total of 34 points out of a possible 40.
Hamza, on the other hand, performed a Foxtrot to Islands In The Stream by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers.
The 32-year-old wildlife presenter and his professional partner Jowita wowed the judges with their footwork. They earned a score of 34 out of 40, putting them joint-top of the leaderboard alongside Will and Nancy.
By contrast, former England soccer captain Tony Adams and his partner Katya Jones failed to impress with their routine.
Katya created an Arsenal-themed Tango, to Go West by Village People.
The ex-sportsman began the routine sat on top of a cannon, in reference to his former team – but Tony's efforts underwhelmed the judging panel, with Craig describing his performance as "stompy".

The results from the opening weekend of dancing will all be carried over to next week when one of the celebrities will be going home.
