Strictly Come Dancing fans were left fuming after Angela Rippon was saved over Krishnan Guru-Murthy, with some calling it a “travesty” and others calling it a “fix”.
Newsreaders Angela and Krishnan ended up in the bottom two after Saturday night’s (11 November) instalment of the BBC ballroom show. They went head to head in the dance-off, with Krishnan cracking out his Samba with Lauren Oakley once again and Angela performing her Paso Doble with Kai Widdrington.
While judge Craig Revel Horwood acknowledged that Krishnan had “upped” his game a bit, he opted to keep Angela in the competition and sent her through to the Blackpool stage. And Motsi Mabuse and Anton Du Beke did the same.

Head judge Shirley Ballas said she would have kept Krishnan on the dancefloor. But with three judges saving Angela he was sent packing.
And the decision left plenty of fans unimpressed. Several posted messages on social media saying that they thought Krishnan had performed better than Angela on the night and that he didn’t deserve to go this week.
One person ranted on X, which used to be Twitter, that it was “so unfair”. “We all knew they were getting her to Blackpool, absolute joke,” they added.
Someone else accused the BBC show of being “rigged to make sure Angela gets to Blackpool”. “Totally unfair,” they added as one viewer called it a “f****** travesty”, insisting: “KGM deserved to stay.” “Why was Angela R put through?” they asked, saying it was “depressing”.
“Anyone else think it’s an absolute travesty that Angela R has been saved by the judges when they even admitted Krishnan upped his game!” said someone else. “Craig and Shirley even pointed out Angela made a mistake!”
Another fan remarked: “Shirley called the right result. Krishnan should’ve gone through.” Someone else asked: “How did Angela get through instead of Krishnan? Neither was brilliant, but Krishnan edged it for me.”
However, there were others who felt the judges had “got it right” this time. “She was very good,” one said of Angela’s dramatic dance.
"How fabulous is Angela," said another. "And she looked stunning. Amazing."
