Strictly fans rage at judges clear ‘favouritism’ towards finalist – but did you spot it?


STRICTLY fans raged at the judges clear ‘favouritism’ towards one of the finalists – but did you spot it?

Tonight marks the final of the BBC dance show.

Strictly fans have raged at ‘favouritism’ towards one of the contestants

Countryfile’s Hamza Yassin, TV presenter Helen Skelton, children TV presenter Molly Rainford and singer Fleur East are battling it out for the Glitterball trophy.

Fleur took to the dance floor with her partner Vito Coppola to perform the samba.

The pair were awarded 10 from every judge – Craig Revel Horwood, Shirley Ballas, Anton Du Beke and Motsi Mabuse – meaning that they topped the leaderboard with 40.

They were also awarded the second Perfect Ten of the entire series.

However some viewers watching at home think that there was ‘favouritism’ towards Fleur.

One said on Twitter: “#FleurEast obviously the judges favourite hence the 40. But sadly will not win as not the public’s favourite. #strictly #SCD #StrictlyFinal.”

Another added: “Of course Fleur got a perfect score… she’s a judges favourite! She’s good, don’t get me wrong but so are the others.”

“Think we can all guess Craig’s favourite,” a third chimed in.

A fourth wrote: “Oh here we go judges favourite , Fleur ! It’s going to be 40 ! Public haven’t connected though and I can’t see her winning.”

Meanwhile others had the same complaint about Craig Revel Horwood in the grand final.

Viewers flooded social media to pick out how the judge was trying his best to find flaws in each dance despite it being the final show.

Despite fans having hopes he would be full of compliments for each dance, fans were upset to see he was back to his old ways.

The first two dances, performed by Hamza Yassin and Molly Rainford, saw him try and nit pick things that went wrong.

He could be heard telling Hamza, 32, and his pro partner Jowita Prystal the areas in which they could improve.

“CRAIG YOU ARE SO ANNOYING! UGH,” one wrote on Twitter, as another chimed in: “Oh bore off Craig, be nice about it.”

“Shut up Craig there is no need for that in the final,” a third said, while a fourth added: “Can Craig please cheer up?”
