Strictly fans all saying the same thing as show gets unplanned shock shake-up during results show | The Sun

STRICTLY Come Dancing fans have been left confused after the show got an unplanned shock shake-up during over the weekend.

Viewers were baffled during Monday night's results show after an element went "missing" in a "very odd" change of schedule.


Last night, Strictly fans were left heartbroken as they waved goodbye to Will Mellor and Nancy Xu ahead of the final this weekend.

However, many were left distracted from the vote-off after an element of the show went awry – despite a "big song and dance".

Historically, the results show normally opens with the professionals entertaining the crowd with a rehearsed number.

However, the key show element was missing despite it being mention on Sunday night by hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman.

The pair had teased that judge Craig Revel Horwood would be joining the group of professionals as part of the opening routine.

But the show rolled on without it, as Tess, 53, and Claudia, 50, introduced it – failing to mention why the dance had been axed.

Fans were left confused by the shake-up, with one writing: "Very odd there, results show always opens with a routine from the professionals, but there was nothing, just straight into intro from Claudia and Tess. No explanation.

"Even odder in the main show the night before they made a big song and dance about how Craig was going to appear in the professionals number in the result show.

"On my TV screen summary of the show, it even says 'a professional number featuring Craig', so I thought it must have been planned.

"But where was it? They made no mention of it when it didn’t happen. Wondered if something went wrong…"

Another chimed in on Twitter: "Wonder why the group dance that they advertised featuring Craig was not shown?"

A third said: "Seems I'm not the only one querying the lack of group dance with Craig, advertised/pre-warned and then nothing. Cheated."

While a fourth concluded: "Did I miss an announcement? I guess the group dance with Craig had to be cut from the results show?"

It comes after Strictly fans branded the show a fix after Will Mellor got the boot in a shock result last night.

The actor missed out on a place in the final after a dance-off against Fleur East, which saw Shirley Ballas have the deciding vote.

Following the shock results fans rushed online to complain, with one person tweeting: “Definitely seems there was a conspiracy to get rid of Will Mellor."

A second said: “The judges were overly harsh and clearly showed favouritism to others. Fix! I'd have definitely saved Will."
