Strictly fans stunned as Shirley Ballas slams Claudia Winkleman for slouching
STRICTLY Come Dancing viewers were shocked as judge Shirley Ballas dished out some harsh criticism — to presenter Claudia Winkleman.
Ballas did not limit her comments to the dancers during last night’s results programme but turned her attention to the presenter, telling her to stop slouching.
Many fans of the BBC show went online to express their anger.
One annoyed viewer wrote on Twitter: ‘Oh my god how rude was Shirley to Claudia !? every week I’m liking her less and less tbh.’
‘Strictly @BBC please please get rid of shirley… she’s very rude & patronising with a lack of personality & empathy!!’ said another outraged fan.
‘Oh my god how rude is shirley shes like a headmistress prowling the halls watching peoples posture,’ said another.
However, others thought Ballas’s critique was hilarious.
One person called the moment ‘priceless’ and another said they ‘loved it’.
‘Shirley calling Claudia out on her slouching was EVERYTHING!!! We’ve been shouting that at the tv for years!’ said another.
Simon Rimmer was the latest celebrity to be eliminated from the competition.
The Sunday Brunch presenter received his marching orders after a dance-off against Mollie King.
Susan Calman takes Twitter break over ‘not so nice’ comments
CONTESTANT Susan Calman took a day off social media to rediscover her ‘joy’ after a series of negative messages from online trolls.
The comedian, 42, said she needed a break after receiving unpleasant comments about her weight and her moves on the dancefloor.
She told her 137,000 followers on the site: ‘Thanks for all the lovely tweets. As for the not so nice ones 1) I know I’m not thin 2) I’m not the best dancer. And that’s ok with me.’
She said in a second tweet: ‘I’m not the most self confident person and I do take things personally. Taking the day off here to build up the joy again. Back soon xx.’
