    Tom's 'kind of perfect' dance

    Discussing his and Amy's performance to On My Own from Les Misérables, Tom admitted that leaving the show after the dance was "kind of perfect".

    And, revealing that he had a personal connection to the song, Tom added: "You don't want to let them down, and obviously it's Les Mis and everyone loves Les Mis, it's an amazing song so you know there's things like that. But you try to put it to one side."

    Tom and Amy's exit came amid yet another "fix" row from fans with some claiming on social media that the judges had voted strategically to keep certain acts safe.

    Strictly’s Rose slammed as ‘average’ (Continued…)

    Speaking to Hello! magazine ex pro James Jordan said: “Rose and Giovanni came out with a Quickstep, but I didn’t think it was their best performance.

    “I think we’ve seen such great things from this pairing, that our expectations were set extremely high.”

    Inspirational dancer

    Earlier this week, Rose and Giovanni melted hearts on This Morning as they reflected on the impact of having Rose – who is deaf – taking part in the BBC dance competition.

    Rose told presenters Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary: “It’s society that makes it difficult being deaf …

    “My mum – when she found out I was deaf, she felt so alone. She felt she had no idea about deaf culture and deaf community.

    “It’s society that makes it difficult being deaf…. there’s nothing wrong with being deaf, I have no problem with it.”

    Italian dancer Giovanni, 31 added that Rose is “100% the best dance partner” on the show.

    He continued: “I’m a professional dancer, I’ve been doing it for 23 years. 

    “Even 10 seconds of silence was so hard because in that 10 seconds, you have to think about your steps and you have to think about keeping the beat – and I was like, ‘Now I understand what she goes through.'”

    Strictly’s Rhys Stephenson has been warned

    Strictly Come Dancing star Rhys Stephenson has reportedly been warned to keep his routines ‘clean’ to avoid upsetting his younger fans.

    A source told the Mail On Sunday: “There is a concerted effort to keep Rhys clean.

    “The routines are tame compared to other contestants because bosses are aware that a lot of young children watch Strictly, particularly on catch-up, and seeing the guy they associate with their own programmes getting sexual wouldn’t be great.

    “PG is what his dances are all about.”

    The star found himself in the bottom two last night, but was saved in a dance off against McFly star Tom Fletcher.

      An almost kiss…

      Viewers felt ‘awkward’ during Musicals Week after AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington almost kissed again.

      The couple have been dogged by romance rumours throughout this year’s series, and almost shared a kiss at the end of their sizzling Argentine Tango a few weeks ago.

      The couple opened Musicals Week last night with a romantic Waltz to Edelweiss from The Sound of Music.

      In the VT leading up to the routine, AJ and Kai danced on a hill with the London skyline behind them.

      Kai suggested AJ kiss him and she replied: “Kai, I’m not going to kiss ya!”

      Some viewers found the moment cringe-worthy, with one writing on Twitter: “Sorry I have just died of awkwardness from the Kai/AJ kiss VT, future tweets not my own, instead those of my ghost.”

      Fans accuse judges of undermarking Tom

      Fans have also accused the judges of hugely undermarking Tom for his Les Mis inspired routine, yet again saying that BBC Breakfast host Dan Walker had been awarded more points than his dance deserved.

      John's on a diet of jelly beans

      Due to an unexpected reason, John Whaite has revealed he’s gained weight on the show.

      The TV chef and the rest of the celebrities have been training hard for the show since the beginning of September.

      And over the years, because of their vigorous training, many contestants have lost a couple of pounds along the way.

      However, the star baker, who bravely opened up about his struggles with bulimia, has done the complete opposite.

      John confessed: “I’ve actually put a bit of weight on because I’ve been eating so many jelly beans and drinking so much Coke.”

      Telltale clue show was ‘fixed’ for Tom to leave

      STRICTLY Come Dancing fans claimed to have spotted a telltale clue that the weekend's show was "fixed" for Tom Fletcher to leave.

      Sharing a screenshot of the concert info, one viewer tweeted: "Tom is actually in the #02 tonight, it was staged for him to leave tonight."

      Another said: "Love that my friend has just posted on fb that she’s at the O2 waiting for McFly… Hmm but Tom Fletcher is at the Strictly results!"

      One more moaned: "Dying that Tom is in the dance off and on stage at the O2 with McFly…. When will Strictly just own up to doing the results show on Saturday night?"

      The results show being pre-recorded is a constant source of confusion for some, with many tweeting every week believing that it is live.

      ‘Strictly NOT a fix’

      STRICTLY’S Anton du Beke has said that the show is not fixed and the BBC don’t care who wins.

      Anton said: “In regards to everything else, the BBC don’t care about who wins or who doesn’t win because they’re interested in making a great television show. 

      “The judges don’t mind who wins and who doesn’t, because I can’t say to you, ‘my favourite was Dan Walker,’ because you’ll say to me, ‘you don’t know what you’re talking about, he’s obviously not danced better than AJ [Odudu] last weekend’, let’s say.

      “So all I do is I lose my own credibility, so I have to mark what I see, and based on that, you get this element of, it is what it is.” 

      Adding to the Daily Express, he said: “Nobody goes off after Strictly Come Dancing and gets a big recording contract – you get a trophy, you go, ‘thank you very much,’ then you go back to your day job. 

      “So it’s all a bit of a pointless exercise to fix it.”

      Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “Despite topping the leaderboard with a perfect 40 Tilly finds herself in battle with Dan and Tom to face elimination on Sunday.”

      She added: “However, punters’ money suggests they want the BBC host or McFly man axed instead this weekend.”
