Viewers thought Molly made a subtle jibe at producers

Viewers picked up on Molly’s subtle jibe at producers about their Granger Hill theme song dance choice this week, after they survived the dance-off against Jayde Adams and Karen Hauer to stay in the competition.

Molly said: “I think after watching Tyler and Dianne’s couples choice and they did a similar style, the judges were kind of into it so we thought maybe there’s a good chance of them enjoying our one.

“But I completely get what they were saying, I guess with the theme tune and everything it wasn’t quite as exciting as some of our dances have been because there wasn’t a lot of places to take it. So it was more down to us to take it somewhere else…”

The dance duo were given their lowest score yet of just 30 points with a 6/8/8/8.

Show host Rylan, 34, asked the pair how they felt about the situation they found themselves at the weekend.

“I had so much fun with it and I feel like we delivered the fun to the judges but of course there’s always space to do it better,” Carlos shared.

Molly replied: “That was tough. I definitely had to hold back some tears because I was having so much fun and this can’t be my last dance you know? And I hope I haven’t let Carlos down because he’s been such an amazing partner and I didn’t want it to end there.

“It was a tough night.”

Picking up on Molly’s comments, one Strictly fan penned on social media: “I don’t think they have a future in diplomacy…”

Another added: “Molly and Carlos both wanting to say the Granger Hill theme tune was a horrible choice without directly saying the Granger Hill theme tune was a horrible choice <3″

While a third said: “It was obvious when she called it ‘a show from my parents childhood’ I felt old!”

Strictly It Takes Two returns every weekday on BBC2.
