STRICTLY Come Dancing has once again found itself in the middle of the racing series after Fleur East landed in the dance-off for the third time.

The singer finished ten points ahead of Ellie Taylor in the rankings at the end of last night’s show, but failed to garner enough votes from the public to secure her place in the next round.

Both women were forced to dance again – and eventually the judges opted to send the 38-year-old Ted Lasso actress packing.

But those watching at home weren’t impressed to see Fleur fighting for their spot and took to Twitter to complain.

One person wrote: “Racist #strict vote in full force tonight.”

A second tweeted: “How’s Fleur dancing AGAIN???? It’s getting ridiculous. She’s way better than Ellie. That reminds me of the hate that #AlexandraBurke had on a previous series #SCD #StrictlyComeDancing #SCD2022.”

And a third said: “Fleur off that beautiful woman in the dance again… this woman dances really well but wait let me guess she’s black and most of the people voting are conservative and white 🥱 #Strictly #racism.”

Fleur 35 performed the rumba to the Sugababes’ Too Lost In You with partner Vito Coppola, while Taylor performed the jive to Van Morrison’s Brown Eyed Girl with her professional partner Johannes Radebe.

Craig Revel Horwood opted to save Fleur, saying “Based on technique alone, I’d happily save Fleur and Vito.”

Motsi Mabuse agreed, adding: “First of all I would like to say that both couples played really, really well, also for me the technical aspect was very important so I will save Fleur and Vito.”

Anton Du Beke also opted to save East but credited Taylor for her efforts: “I just want to congratulate both couples on making it this far in the competition.

“Both danced beautifully. I thought Ellie did a great job in your jive. And Fleur, I found your technique strong and your performance powerful and I would like to save Fleur and Vito.”

With three votes for Fleur, it was confirmed that Ellie would go home, but Chief Justice Shirley Ballas also confirmed that she would have chosen to save Fleur

She said: “Both couples danced exceptionally well but on this occasion I would have saved Fleur and Vito down to the technical qualities.”
