Strictly Come Dancing 2016 results hit by voting problems in the semi final


Tonight's Strictly Come Dancing 2016 results have been plagued by voting problems.

As we write this lines are still open but many users are struggling to support their favourite in the free online vote.

It's the penultimate weekend of live shows and tonight the final four couples each danced two routines for the first time this year.

Lines then opened but many have found it impossible to vote via the official BBC website.


"#Strictly why can't I vote online! FFS, semi finals I need to vote @SCD2016UK sort it out, quickly! Help," one of many Tweets about the problem read tonight.

"#Strictly I can't vote either - get it sorted please BBC" another added.

"Come on!!!!!! Strictly!!!! Why can't I vote online???? #Strictly" wrote a third.

It does appear that votes are now starting to register but with only a short voting window due to the pre-recorded results, it could well impact the outcome.

The official BBC Strictly Twitter account said: "Apologies, we had a slight technical error at the start of the Vote. If you had problems, please try again. The Vote is open until 20.40."

The two acts with the fewest combined votes and judges' scores will appear in the dance off in Sunday night's results show.

As always judges Len Goodman, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood marked all of the performances out of 40 this evening with the competition just a week away from the final.

Come the end of the night, Ore Oduba ended Danny Mac's four week reign at the top of the leaderboard as he finished the evening with a combined score of 77 out of 80 marks to Danny's 76.

Meanwhile Louise Redknapp and Claudia Fragapane were joint bottom with 73 points each after their two routines.

Strictly is back on Sunday night on BBC One for the latest results show as the three finalists are confirmed.
