Strictly Come Dancing 2016 judge Darcey Bussell slams 'fix' claims


Strictly Come Dancing judge Darcey Bussell has slammed 'fix' claims aimed at the show.

This year has seen a number of complaints ranging from voting problems to THAT cancelled dance off.

The Strictly panel themselves have even been accused of undermarking and overmarking certain celebrities to determine who stays in the competition.

The BBC have branded the allegations "nonsense" and Darcey has echoed those comments.

"Fixed? How could you on a live show like this?" she said this week.

"Do you know how many hours the celebs do a day? A lot of them are stepping into something they have never touched," Darcey told Woman's Own magazine. "They have a personal coach and they get three weeks of training before the competition starts which gives them an ideal of the different styles.

"And then they get to know their professional dancers.

"If you are a dancer you see what they are capable of – and what they are not."

"And then it's down to the public vote," Darcey concluded.

The remaining four couples will return to the dancefloor for the semi final of the competition on Saturday 10th December at 6:50PM.

Then on Sunday 11th December at 7.20pm on BBC One one more celebrity will leave the competition in the latest results show.
