Come dance strictly Judge Motsi Mabuse has dismissed claims that the contest is set after her comments about the latest elimination were misinterpreted.
This week saw Cowardly Women Star Judi Love and Graziano Di Prima were sent home after participating in the dance against Olympic swimmer Adam Peaty and Katya Jones.
When asked who she would send home on the Sunday night show, Mabuse said, “I have to say the dancing was really great, it was great watching the two couples dance on the dance floor. .
“The decision has been made for me so I must say that the couple I am going to save are Adam and Katya.”

But after some viewers assumed she hinted it wasn’t her decision to have the 40-year-old dance school owner tweet that she regretted phrasing her choice that way.
Mabuse tweeted: “Which was so obvious to me, because the mistakes were so clear !! Back in the days of some crazy conspiracy theories …… .. lol.”
A spectator commented: “Motsi: ‘The decision was made for me …’ – that’s it !! So the rumors were true? The producers told the judges to send Judi home and save Adam? #Strictly # Strictly2021”
And another wrote: “Did Motsi just say ‘the decision was made for me’? A little fishy if you ask me. #Strictly #StrictlyComeDancing.”
The Strictly Claims are corrected as comedian Julian Clary – who reached the final of the second round of the celebrity dance competition in 2004 – has claimed the dance was introduced by producers to prevent popularity from championing dance skills .
Clary, 62, told The Times: “It was all done in the public voting at the time and I don’t think they wanted me in the final.
“I wasn’t very good. There were better dancers than me. Now they have the dance thing.
“They found a way to control it.”
The Mail On Sunday reported leaking voting figures revealing McFly’s Tom Fletcher received the most votes from the public the week before, at 19.1%.
Boy band singer and partner Amy Dowden got just 29/40 from the judges for their evil Halloween Tango at AC / DC’s Highway to Hell. This equaled the score of Peaty and Jones, who participated in the dance.
The second largest share of viewer votes according to leaked numbers went to EastEnders star Rose Ayling-Ellis and her professional partner Giovanni Pernice with 18.2 percent.
The couple achieved the series’ first perfect score during Halloween week, receiving 40/40 for their own tango.
