BBC Strictly Come Dancing fans make 'distracting' complaint after 'forgetting' Blackpool addition
18.11.2023 - 20:03
Strictly Come Dancing fans were left divided as some complained about a 'distracting' addition to the latest live show. It was the change viewers had been waiting for all series for as the seven remaining couples, the judges and the show's hosts ditched the usual Elstree studio.
As per the show's annual tradition, they headed to Blackpool for week nine of the BBC One dance contest as it continued for one week only in the iconic Tower Ballroom in the seaside town. And things got off to a glitzy and energetic start with the hit show's group of professional dancers opening the show as they filled the sprung floor to a mega musical mash-up.
But the first couple to open the Blackpool special were Bobby Brazier and Dianne Buswell. The EastEnders actor and his professional dance partner got things off to a great star with a colourful jive to Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go by Wham!

Head judge Shirley Ballas told Bobby: "You brought everything to this dance. I’m so proud of you." Anton Du Beke shared: "That was just epic, I absolutely loved it."
Motsi Mabuse, meanwhile, said: "I believe that was your personal best," says Motsi Mabuse. However, Craig Revel Horwood received boos from the audience when he said the dance was a "bit stompy".
But Bobby and Dianne appeared please as the judges awarded them a total of 35 points. However, Strictly viewers couldn't help but share their complaints during the routine due to the addition of backing dancers which don't usually appear alongside the couples.
