Strictly Come Dancing faces more fix claims after Helen George speaks out

Strictly Come Dancing is facing yet more fix claims following remarks from Helen George.

The cute Call The Midwife star made a surprise exit from the competition earlier this year in a bottom two dance off with eventual runner up Georgia May Foote.

While the Strictly final may have been a week ago now, Helen has reignited talk of a fix by claiming that the show is "controlled".

“It is a dance show and a television show so there has to be drama and it has to be somewhat controlled for it to fit the format," she said.

Talking to The Sun newspaper about the controversy over the dance-offs this year, Helen added: “I don’t know what happened and I wasn’t privy to it.”

She continued: "I would have loved to have stayed of course and I feel like I had a couple of lovely dances in me still, but at the same point it is what happened and there is no point in begrudging it or getting too upset about it.

“It is TV and it is a show and I enjoyed my time on it. I was quite tired as well. It was quite nice to go home and sit on the sofa for a couple of days.”

Helen went on to claim that the judges "don't always get it right" but conceded it was all very "subjective" at the end of the day.

“It is an art form," Helen suggested. "That is why it is so brilliant and so exciting to watch and there is chemistry whilst you watch it.

“You love it and you hate it for all those reasons. And that is why after 13 series it is still going strong.”

It was reported previously that Strictly would be investigated over some fix claims over allegation by now former pro-dancer Ola Jordan.

Strictly returns for its fourteenth series in the autumn next year.
