The Greatest Dancer viewers left cringing as ‘awkward’ Cheryl ‘copies’ Oti

The Greatest Dancer didn’t get off to the best start tonight, with many left confused over the concept.

And ‘captain’ Cheryl’s "awkwardness" didn’t help matters – particularly after it appeared like she copied Oti Mabuse.

Earlier in the programme Strictly pro Oti jumped on stage to dance with an act who made it through to the next round.

Later, Cheryl did exactly the same thing with a performer who had danced to her track – and it didn’t exactly have the same positive effect.

Fans took to Twitter to point out the awkward moment.

One tweeted: "Cheryl gets up on stage to dance cos she’s just seen Oti do it and own it, but Chezza is so f***ing awkward she doesn’t know how to work a space unless it’s choreographed for her. Oti knows her s***. It’s her show. #thegreatestdancer."

While another commented: "Cheryl going up on stage on #thegreatestdancer OMG massive cringe. I’m turning off."
