Strictly fans all say the same thing as Shirley Ballas sends Kym Marsh home


STRICTLY Come Dancing fans all said the same thing after Shirley Ballas sent Kym Marsh home.

The soap star – who plays Michelle Connor in Coronation Street – was the latest celebrity to be booted off this year’s series of the BBC dance show.

Strictly fans all thought the same thing after Kym Marsh was booted off the show

Kym was the latest celebrity to be voted out of the show

Kym and Molly performed in the dance off last weekend

On Saturday evening Kym, 43, and dance partner Graziano di Prima were sent home after a dance-off with Molly Rainford and Carlos Gu.

CBBC star Molly performed a Charleston to Hot Honey Rag from the musical Chicago, while Kym performed a Cha Cha to Fame from the musical Fame.

Fans of the show have taken to Twitter to praise the outcome.

One said: “I cannot believe that Shirley has just made the right decision. It’s only took her eleven weeks…”

A second added: “thank you shirley #Strictly.”

A third chimed in: “Right decision Shirley. I don’t understand why people not voting for Molly cause that dance of hers was really good, is it because she less familiar than the others – I’m not sure of her line of work but she’s still a great dancer.”

Judges Craig Revel Horwood, 57, and Motsi Mabuse, 41, and Shirley Ballas, 62, all decided to save Molly.

While Anton Du Beke, 56, was the only Kym supporter.

In recent weeks fans have been left reeling by Shirley’s decisions on who she wanted to send home.

Viewers blasted the judge and claimed that she is sexist.

The dance veteran was accused of preferring male celebrity dancers to women on the hit BBC1 show.

Fans went into meltdown during an episode in October when Shirley once again backed a man over his “skilled” female rival.

Singer Fleur East, 34, and pro partner Vito Coppola, 30, survived the dance off, but Shirley said she would have booted them out in favour of Radio 2’s Richie Anderson, 34, who performed a Samba dressed as a meerkat.
