Strictly Come Dancing 2016: Is THIS why Daisy Lowe has been in the dance off?

Daisy Lowe was in Strictly Come Dancing 2016's dance off for a second time on Sunday night.

And judge Len Goodman thinks he may know why.

Daisy and pro partner Aljaž Skorjanec were saved by Len and his fellow judges from the axe against Anastacia and Brendan Cole last night.

It was the second time in the dance off in as many weeks for Daisy, despite placing a strong 4th on the leaderboard with 33 points.

Speaking to Chris Evans on BBC Radio 2's Breakfast Show earlier today, Len suggested that Daisy was a victim of placing middle in the scoreboard.

"She is a terrific dancer, she has got a lovely personality and she's such a charming lovely person," Len said. "The only thing I can think of is that when people vote they see Daisy [and] she's in fourth place.

"She's in a good position, you think, 'Well, she's safe' and they vote for somebody down the line who they hope will come back.

"And then poor Daisy gets overlooked - that's the only thing I can imagine."

He claimed: "It's got nothing to do with her dancing."

Len went on to encourage fans of the model to make sure they vote for her online or via the phone next week if they want to keep her in.

"This is what I tell people when they moan about it. Don't moan if you don't phone!" he said.

Strictly Come Dancing is back next Saturday and Sunday night on BBC One.
