Strictly fans convinced ‘lucky’ Dan Walker should have been in dance off over Judi Love

October 18, 2021

Strictly Come Dancing viewers were left frustrated that Loose Women favourite Judi Love was revealed to be in the bottom two in Saturday night's show.

Some were convinced that Judi's place in the competition was only at risk because BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker had had a "lucky" escape from the dance-off after a questionable performance.

The TV journalist performed a Cha Cha Cha to Can't Touch This by MC Hammer, and while the judging panel were impressed by Dan's fabulous entertaining skills and acting ability, there were concerns about his framing and general footwork.

While Judi had the entire audience in tears with her personal and poignant Waltz to the song Hero by Mariah Carey, which she revealed was dedicated to her late mum and dad.

Craig Revel Horwood declared he wasn't going to point out the things that were bad about her performance, and instead chose to encourage her for a beautiful and powerful routine.

The other judges mostly followed suit but Judi and her professional dance partner Graziano di Prima's scoring didn't reflect the comments.

While the couple looked devastated to be in the dance off for a second week in the row, Judi told presenter Tess Daly that she was enjoying the competition so much she didn't mind dancing her routine again.

"I feel really good to be honest, it's just an amazing experience, I get to dance again and I get to hear the lovely music again," she said.

In the end, the judges saved Judi and opted to send Greg Wise and pro Karen Hauer home, but viewers were still unimpressed with the turn of events during week four.

"Excuse me Judi in the dance off what is happening here #Strictly," one fan raged.

Another fumed: "Oh do me a favour. Judi again??! So not deserved #Strictly."

"There’s just no need to eliminate a couple this week is there? I’ll be absolutely fuming if Judi goes #scd #SCD2021 #Strictly #Strictly2021 #StrictlyComeDancing," a third insisted.

While others were so adamant Dan was the worse dancer as one viewer demanded: "Who the hell is voting for Dan? #Strictly."

Another wondered: "How has Dan Walker escaped every single dance off so far #strictly."

"I don’t understand why or how Dan has made it this far without being in a dance off #Strictly," a third posted, followed by: "Ooooh Dan and Adam [Peaty] got very lucky #Strictly."
