Strictly Come Dancing 2017 viewers accuse judges of 'undermarking' Mollie King

Strictly Come Dancing 2017 - TX8 LIVE SHOW

Strictly Come Dancing 2017 viewers have accused the judges of 'undermarking' Mollie King.

Tonight Strictly hit Week 8 of the competition and the pressure was on after last week's shock dance off.

Plus, a spot in next weekend's Blackpool special was up for grabs.

Once again deciding who was on top form this evening were judges Shirley Ballas, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood, who scored the remaining celebrity couples.

After two weeks in the dance off, Mollie and AJ were hoping to bounce back with their Paso to Layla by Derek and the Dominoes this evening.

However they got a disappointing response from the judges and left the dancefloor with just 22 marks.

It resulted in the couple just above the danger zone before the viewer votes are cast.

Taking to Twitter after the show, fans of the pair hit out at the judges' marks.

One wrote: "#Strictly2017 I’m sorry but Mollie and Aj deserved more than that! Their dance was one of the best I’ve seen so far 🤔"

Another commented: "Crikey... ridiculously low marks for mollie and AJ on @bbcstrictly it wasn’t perfect but that was just odd...#bizarre"

A third raged: "so fed up of the constant s**t that the judges give Mollie, how dare Bruno give Mollie a 5 and Susan an 8? such a f**king mess. #Strictly."

And former pro James Jordan also got involved, tweeting: "She wasn’t great but I still much preferred her dance too Susan’s Yet Susan gets 8’s, strange.

"That’s it I’m voting for Mollie this week I’ve decided. Let’s give her a break bless her. Plus she gave 100%".
