Strictly fans outraged as Alex Scott is axed after ‘unfair vote off’

Strictly Come Dancing viewers were outraged as it was revealed that Alex Scott and Neil Jones were the latest contestants to be axed from the competition, after there was a technical fault with voting.

The former footballer was given the boot after performing her Samba to Joyful Joyful in the dance off.

Fans are furious as they didn't think Alex deserved to go.

One said: "Outrageous! Well done BBC, all our online votes for Alex were clearly not counted. BBC is a joke! we won’t be watching again! Result was a disgrace."

While another moaned: "When I tried to vote last night, it said I'd reached the max number of votes. I hadn't voted! I didn't bother to try cos I didn't think it 'd work. Then tonight they say sorry for the glitch but it didn't affect result. IT DID!!"

"With the votes not really working last night why did we have a vote off??!

"I‘ve loved each and every one of Alex and Neil’s dances and it was so unfair for them to leave this week." said a third.
