Strictly Come Dancing ‘fix’ row as fans fume over latest elimination
Strictly Come Dancing viewers have expressed their annoyance after the result of this week's dance off appeared to be leaked online before the results show airs on Sunday evening.
The Strictly elimination and dance off is filmed on Saturday straight after the live show but is not shown on television until Sunday evening, meaning the audience know the result 24 hours before the rest of the public.
The result has therefore been leaked online – as it is every week – and viewers have been left unimpressed, branding the BBC One show a 'fix' after finding out which celebrity reportedly was sent home.
It's unconfirmed which two couples found themselves in the dance-off, but the leaked spoilers have left many viewers angry.
"Hmm… Blackpool fix? #Strictly #StrictlyComeDancing," one viewer penned, while a second said: "SPOILER ALERT Wasn't it obvious what the judges wanted from the beginning. Strictly is a fix this year".
A third fan fumed: "I'm now thinking that #StrictlyComeDancing #Strictly a fix," and a fourth wrote: "I'm gonna say it first. Fix! The BBC have their wish! #StrictlyComeDancing #Strictly".
It wasn't only the leaked results that left fans annoyed at Strictly this week, as many believed Layton Williams and Nikita Kuzmin were under marked for their performance on Saturday night.
The dynamic duo were able to reclaim their spot at the top of the leaderboard with a flawless Argentine Tango to Tattoo by Loreen, that even left Craig Revel Horwood with nothing but high praise to say.
While it certainly impressed all four of the judges, fans at home couldn’t help but feel that Layton and Nikita had been “robbed” when Craig decided to award the pair a 9, despite all his fellow judges – Shirley Ballas, Anton du Beke and Motsi Mabuse – all giving Nikita and Layton a 10.
“Layton and Nikita were robbed – their Argentine Tango should have got a forty! #StrictlyComeDancing," fumed one unimpressed fan.
A second viewer also agreed as they added: "Leyton was ROBBED of a perfect score there! Deserved a 40 silly Craig #StrictlyComeDancing."
Can the duo make it to Blackpool and finally score 40 points for their incredible routines?
