Strictly Come Dancing tour bosses deny Joe Sugg 'fix'

Celebs on the Strictly Come Dancing 2019 are reportedly unhappy with conditions backstage.

Following last year's 2018 TV series, seven celebs are back and this time on the road for this year's Strictly live stage show, which is celebrating an eleventh year.


The celebs and pro dancers on the Strictly Come Dancing 2019 tour are Ashley Roberts and Pasha Kovalev; Lauren Steadman and AJ Pritchard; Graeme Swann and Karen Clifton; Faye Tozer and Giovanni Pernice; Stacey Dooley and Aljaž Skorjanec; Dr Ranj Singh and Janette Manrara and finally Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell.

Each night they'll be performing for the judges - Craig Revel Horwood, Bruno Tonioli and Darcey Bussell - as well as the live arena audience of thousands.

Each night, it's the crowd who decide a winner via a text vote - and so far it's been a clean sweep for Joe and Dianne.

While they didn't win the TV series, the pair have lifted the glitterball each evening of the tour so far.

It's led to claims that Joe's fans have been 'fixing' the vote by supporting their favourite even when they're not in the audience.

"Other celebs are confused how Joe keeps winning by a mile, as Stacey got the most votes for the TV final," a source told The Sun newspaper. "They are talking backstage about how easy it must be for outside texts to get into the vote, as voters need not give a seat or ticket number.”

However another source on the tour insisted: "There are systems which prevent external votes being included."

Alongside Joe and Dianne's nightly victories, Faye & Gio have been runners up three times while Stacey & Aljaz have been runners up the rest of the tour dates so far.
