STRICTLY Come Dancing star Shirley Ballas has hit back at a fan with a furious message after a fix row.
The fan in question accused Head Judge Shirley, 62, of undermarking Molly Rainford and Fleur East and instead overmarking contestants Will Mellor and Hamza Yassin.
Strictly’s Head Judge Shirley Ballas has hit back at a fan
One viewer claimed Shirley had overmarked Will Mellor
They wrote: “THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU OVERMARK WILL MELLOR AND HAMZA YASSIN AND YOU UNDERMARK MOLLY RAINFORD AND FLEUR EAST!”
But Shirley hit back angrily on social media, and replied: “No dear this is what happens WHEN YOU DONT VOTE. Full stop the end. Enjoy the rest of the show.”
Strictly Come Dancing star Will Mellor topped the leaderboard with his opening Charleston routine this week.
Meanwhile, fans were outraged as Fleur East found herself dancing for survival despite not being in the bottom two of the leaderboard.
One viewer ranted: “FLEUR WAS IN THE BOTTOM TWO AGAIN?! WHAT THE HELL PEOPLE! WHY DO YOU HATE HER?”, while another said: “Fleur shouldn’t be in the bottom two – not sure why the public don’t rate her – think she’s amazing.”
All four judges voted to save Fleur this week after she performed to Too Lost In You by the Sugababes with her partner Vito Coppola.
In the end it was Ellie Taylor who got booted off the show after struggling to impress with her Thelma & Louise-themed performance during Saturday night’s live edition.
Shirley has come under fire several times for her marking on the show, but she hit back at rumours in a recent interview with HOAR.
Speaking at the TV Choice Awards after being accused of a ‘feud’ with Fleur East, she said: “It’s a load of rubbish. I’m going to repeat the word rubbish.
“What I love about Fleur is you could see talent from the beginning. I’ve known the competitive boys and girls on the show for so many years and when I give constructive feedback they’re making notes and taking it on board and look at that Samba.
“I have never in 20 years of watching Dancing With The Stars or Strictly seen a Samba like that lady did. She’s just put herself in the running.”
