One of the contestants from the current series of Strictly Come Dancing has branded the show a fix. I know, 'tis a shock to the system that, isn't it? Said evictee is Joe Calzaghe, who was given the boot on week 5. According to the boxing world champ, the ballroom dancing show producers were the ones who forced his exit and not his lack of dancing skills.
He says that after he insulted fellow apprentice dancer Craig Kelly (yer man who plays Luke in Corrie for those of you who aren't familiar with him) the producers of the show were the ones to call it a day on his foxtrot. "We had the highest votes every week, the producers told us. Then all of a sudden we lost out in the judges' vote. Something was up.....I know it's down to something I said about Craig Kelly. It was worse than a swear word."
He then went on to accuse produces of keeping injured ex footballers wives star Laila Rouass in, as they would rather not hurt her feelings but instead show funny Phil Tuffnell the exit.
Of course a BBC spokesman said that the claims were ridiculous and that judges based their decisions on the dancing.
Imagine a show like that being fixed. Twould make you ponder if Simon Cowell really did send Lucy Jones home since she was a threat to his acts AND if the show's bosses really do turn down Jedward's mics so that the backing singers are heard instead......imagine *stares into space*
