    Down with Strictly spoilers!

    Strictly fans were once again left upset as the results were leaked, leaving two celebrity couples in danger of leaving the show once and for all.

    The unlucky celebrities, who The Sun Online chose not to name, already had their names circulating on social media just hours after the main show.

    The couples taking part in the dreaded dance off, as well as the final result, were shared using the hashtag “Strictly Spoiler” after Saturday’s episode.

    “The #StrictlySpoiler tonight is RIDICULOUS if it’s true,” one fan fumed, as a second chimed in: “I really don’t like the #StrictlySpoiler tonight.”

    Recap: What did the other judges say about Sara and Aljaz?

    Motsi Mabuse added: “Judging on this dance off, I have to say there were three factors that decided it for me; there were details, the nerves and a very strong competitor so I am saving Tilly and Nikita.”

    Anton du Beke agreed saying this was the year to avoid Strictly as “the standard was so high”.

    He said: “‘Based on this dance off and this dance off alone, which was so strong, I’m just going to give the edge to Tilly and Nikita.”

    And Shirley Ballas backed up the decision by her fellow judges.

    Recap: Who was in the dance-off this week?

    Sara and Aljaz were given their marching orders after a tense dance-off against Tilly Ramsay and Nikita Kuzmin.

    The judges voted unanimously for Tilly and Nikita to stay in after their performance.

    Judge Craig Revel Horwood said: “This is a really difficult decision because I gave both couples on Saturday night a seven.

    “So very, very equal, which made the decision even more difficult.

    “But I think for me, the couple that stood out a little bit more and had the edge: Tilly and Nikita.”

    Recap: Who left Strictly this week?

    Sara Davies has become the latest star to be axed from Strictly.

    The Dragons’ Den star is the seventh celebrity to be booted out of this year’s competition.

    She failed to win over the judges with her Argentine tango to No More Tears by Donna Summer and Barbra Streisand.

    After the decision on Sunday, November 14, Davies said: “I had no idea any of this was in me.

    “It’s been a life-changing experience, one I’ve loved every second of.”

    Her pro dance partner Aljaz Skorjanec said: “You have been an absolute joy and a testament to hard work – not just on Strictly but with your business and you’re a beautiful mother.”

    Dan begs trolls ‘not to shout’ after he survives ANOTHER week

    Strictly’s Dan Walker told fans “don’t shout at me” after surviving another week in the competition.

    It comes after Sara Davies was kicked off the BBC One show on Sunday night.

    The presenter was brutally awarded just four points by Craig Revel Horwood on Saturday night for his rendition of the American Smooth.

    So viewers have been scratching their heads over the fact that Dan and dance partner Nadiya Bychkova narrowly dodged the dance off yet again.

    Dan decided to take to Twitter to stand up for himself.

    He told his 729.4k followers: “Please don’t shout at me.

    “I’m having an amazing time, my kids are delighted & it’s only a TV show! For those asking, I don’t know who is voting for us (probably not Craig) but we’re incredibly thankful to everyone who is.

    “See you next week. Can’t wait.”

    Winter of discontent

    Did you hear Oti and Aljaz were thinking of leaving Strictly?

    Oti, 31, is the show’s most successful pro having won twice, with Kelvin Fletcher and Bill Bailey.

    Aljaz, 31, won with Abbey Clancy in 2013 and is the longest-serving male professional still competing.

    It is thought the pair have not yet told the BBC.

    Katya Jones, 32, has also reportedly threatened to quit and an insider said: “Bosses will worry other stars could follow.”

    The moment of tooth

    Rylan Clark shocked fans today as he revealed he has ditched his famously bright white teeth.

    The 33-year-old – who often jokes about his eye-catching gnashers – said he was saying goodbye to them after nearly a decade.

    Writing on Twitter today, the It Takes Two host said: “After 8 years. It hurts, so much, but sometimes you just have to let go.

    “I’ve taken the decision to say goodbye… to my teeth 😂 new smile imminent.”

    This Morning star Alison Hammond characterised much of the reaction, replying with a horrified: “Nooooooooooooo 😂.”

    Who is left to fight for the Glitterball?

    The celebrities taking part in Strictly are:

    • Robert Webb – WITHDREW
    • AJ Odudu
    • Tom Fletcher
    • Nina Wadia – ELIMINATED
    • Greg Wise – ELIMINATED
    • Tilly Ramsay
    • Judi Love – ELIMINATED
    • Adam Peaty – ELIMINATED
    • Dan Walker
    • Katie McGlynn – ELIMINATED
    • John Whaite
    • Rose Ayling-Ellis – THE FAVOURITE
    • Rhys Stephenson
    • Sara Davies – ELIMINATED

    Listen up!

    Dame Evelyn Glennie, an award-winning solo percussionist, profoundly deaf since 12, says: “THE exquisite performances by Rose and Giovanni have captivated the nation.

    “Not least because we are grappling with how a deaf person can dance and “hear” the music.They are showing how listening is not a medical condition but an activity that we decide to engage with.

    “Hearing can be measured but listening cannot. Chemistry between people is built on listening, not to sound but to the presence of another and the acoustics.This was highlighted by the “silence” in their routine.

    “That was the loudest, most deeply weighted part. Our eyes became our ears, our listening emotion became the resonance.Rose and Giovanni are giving us a lesson in listening. The world needs it.”

      John over takes AJ as second favourite for Glitterball

      After a poor weekend for AJ Odudu on the score front, the bookies have revealed it’s now John Whaite who is Rose Ayling-Ellis’ nearest challenger for the Glitterball Trophy at odds of 13/2, with AJ now being an 8/1 shot.

      Elsewhere, Rose has pulled even further away at the head of the betting, and at 1/4, her odds of winning the series are now shorter than they’ve ever been.

      Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Seven celebs are still standing, but it’ll take nothing short of a miracle to stop Rose from adding her name to the Glitterball Trophy in a few weeks from now, if the latest odds are anything to go by.”

      Its not the love bug you need to worry about…

      It’s not just the romance curse you’ve got to be worried about on Strictly, but it appears that illness is stalking the dancefloor.

      Craig Revel Horwood is not the first person to be struck by a positive Covid test.

      Ex contestant Judi Love was forced to pull out for a week after testing positive for Covid 19.

      Similarly Tom Fletcher and his partner Amy were forced to stay home during the first weeks of the competition.

      Just last month Robert Webb quit the competition – just days before the fourth live episode.

      The 49-year-old explained it was due to his ill health following major heart surgery.

      Eliminated star Ugo Monye also took a week out due to ongoing injuries after an emergency operation on his back.

      Strictly fans think Covid saved Dan

      Strictly Come Dancing is facing a fresh fix row as fans of the BBC ballroom show claim that Craig Revel Horwood’s Covid isolation has saved ‘judges favourite’ Dan Walker.

      The BBC Breakfast presenter and his pro partner Nadiya Bychkova are yet to land in the dance-off despite their dances missing the mark with viewers and judge Craig, who awarded his American Smooth just four out of 10 on Saturday’s show.

      However, the other three judges have been repeatedly accused of “overmarking” their fellow BBC star, sparking “fix” speculation.

      Now fans fear that the broadcaster will remain in the show over a more talented dancer in light of the news that Craig will have to isolate after testing positive for Covid-19.

      Taking to Twitter to air their frustration, one viewer wrote: “Oh Dear..Craig now covid infected; nobody to give Dan his rightful score.

      “The BBC get to keep their man!”

      “Oh no, Craig got covid… get well soon! (and Dan survives another week) 😫” another penned.

      Covid curse strikes again

      Strictly has been thrown into chaos once more after Craig Revel Horwood sensationally pulled out of the show after catching Covid.

      The judge will now have to go into isolation after becoming the first member of the panel to test positive for coronavirus on the BBC dance contest.

      It means that Craig – widely known as ‘Mr Nasty’ – will miss this Saturday’s Musicals Special and producers now face a mad scramble to find someone to replace him.

      It comes after the 56-year-old revealed the “major problems” he faces with his fellow judges because of the show’s Covid screens.

      A TV insider said: “This is the latest blow to hit Strictly as a result of Covid.

      Lovers’ dance

      Strictly Come Dancing viewers were left in tears at Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice’s silent dance.

      The professional dancer held back tears as he told his EastEnders actress partner that he loved her following the emotional moment.

      Fans took to Twitter to reveal they were “sobbing” over the stunning contemporary number performed to Clean Bandit’s hit Symphony.

      Viewers broke down when the music stopped midway through the performance seeing deaf star Rose, 26, and Giovanni, 31, dance in complete silence.

      They were also left “screaming” for the pair to “kiss” as the dancer told Rose “I love you” as they embraced at the end of their dance.

      Sara Davies broke down in tears after feeling “lost” without her dance partner Aljaz Skorjanec.

      The Dragons’ Den star was booted out of the competition on Sunday night after a dance-off with Tilly Ramsay.

      And in her exit interview with Rylan on It Takes Two, the 37-year-old started to cry as she reflected on life without Strictly.

      Sara said: “Do you know, I woke up this morning and I was just lost. I was just…

      “We usually have our little routine. The alarm goes off at 5am, check my Instagram Stories, and he’s put a little post on: ‘Oh, he’s woke up!’

      “And then we meet at our own little studio, with our own set of keys, and I’d let us in, you [Aljaž], go and make us the coffees.

      ‘I’ve loved it’

      Pro Aljaz Skorjanec broke his silence last night after fans were convinced he was quitting the show.

      The 31-year-old took to Instagram to pay tribute to his partner Sara Davies as they lost their place in the competition following a dance off against Tilly Ramsay and Nikita Kuzmin.

      Alongside a picture of him and Dragons’ Den star Sara, he wrote:  “We have been having so much fun from day 1. It was such a joy to dance with you every single day for the last 10 weeks.

      “You transformed yourself every single weekend into a beautiful dancer. A real testament to how working hard towards something, can make dreams come true.

      “I LOVED every second of it! Thank you partner! @saradaviescc #haway.”

      A life-changing experience

      Despite her exit, Sara is full of praise for her Strictly experience – saying she already could not believe how far she had got.

      Speaking with host Tess Daly after being voted off, Sara said: “I had no idea any of this was in me.

      “It’s been a life-changing experience and one I’ve loved every second of.”

      Sara also said of her dance partner Aljaz: “He’s one in a million. He knows it, I tell him every day.

      “This wouldn’t have been the experience it was unless it had been with you.”

      The comment moved Aljaz to tears as he wiped his eyes before having his final dance with Sara.

      Hand jive

      Strictly Come Dancing’s Tilly Ramsay and Nikita Kuzmin fuelled romance rumours as they held hands as they arrived for It Takes Two filming.

      The pair were in high spirits as they made their way into the studio for the BBC hit’s sister programme last night.

      Both stars are bundled up in winter jackets and hats, wearing protective face coverings as they lagged several bags into the building.

      Tilly turned her head away from the cameras as she clutched onto Nikita’s hand, with his mask lowered as he appeared to suck on a lollypop.

      The tender display will only escalate ongoing romance rumours that are swirling between the pair, who have survived the Strictly dance-off two weeks in a row.

      Strictly fans have accused the show of being a fix after AJ Odudu ended up on the bottom of the leaderboard.

      Goodbye for good?

      Strictly fans claim professional dancer Aljaz quit on air after being voted off the show.

      His celebrity partner Sara Davies lost out in the dance-off amid rumours the show is “fixed”.

      But fans were concerned Aljaz announced his resignation on the show as he appeared to suggest he would “miss” working on it.

      It comes after his wife Janette Manrara stepped down as a professional to host the spin-off show It Takes Two.

      All kisses, no quitting

      STRICTLY Come Dancing’s Aljaž Škorjanec passionately kissed his wife Janette Manrara after he was booted off the show.

      The 31-year-old star’s emotional reaction to his and celeb partner Sara Davies’ departure sparked speculation that he’d quit the programme and will not be returning to the series next year.

      And amid his tears, former Strictly pro Janette was on hand to comfort the Slovenian hunk, with the two cuddling up in the back of their car.

      While their driver took them back to their home, Janette affectionately leaned in to her husband, who was wearing a bold blue leopard print hoodie.

      Aljaž can be seen smiling through the smooch, both stars’ eyes closed as they enjoy the intimate moment.

      Huge moment for the deaf community

      IT has been hailed as the television moment of the year – and a triumph for the deaf community.

      Strictly viewers were moved to tears as Rose Ayling-Ellis, 26, and pro partner Giovanni Pernice danced in silence on Saturday night during their Couple’s Choice routine, which scored 39 out of 40.

      Now campaigners hope it could lead to greater equality for disabled people — as well as better under-standing of deafness.

      Former Strictly contestant and Invictus Games medallist JJ Chal-mers said EastEnders star Rose’s dance would help “get us to where we want to be” with regards to attitudes around disability”.

      Speaking yesterday, ex-Royal Marine JJ, 34, said: “We are making massive inroads to where we need to be in society and within broadcast, and that is wonderful. People like Rose will get us where we want to be.”

      He added that it’s “nice to see people talking about her disability, yes, but also being able to look beyond it”.

      Not again

      Fans are furious about the results being leaked before the live show.

      Oh, and that Dan’s heading for the finals.

      One wrote: “Why are people surprised that there are SCD spoilers when the 2 programmes are filmed on Saturday.

      “Dan’s still in because he works for the BBC, not for his dancing! #Strictly#Danfix”

      Rose’s emotional performance

      Fans were in bits after Rose performed her emotional couple’s choice dance – which told the story of her life as a deaf person.

      “Rose & Giovani’s dance has pretty much broken me. May go off in a corner and cry for a bit,” one wrote on Twitter.

      “I am full on sobbing at Rose and Giovanni’s couple’s choice dance,” wrote a second as a third concluded: “Between sobbing I was screaming ‘kiss her’!”
