Strictly Come Dancing fans slam new low for BBC show with ridiculous theme

Strictly viewers have slated a dentist scene in Ellie Simmonds' dance, with one calling it a "low point" for the show.

Ellie and her pro partner Nikita Kuzmin took to the dancefloor to Shanice track I Love Your Smile in Saturday's show.

As their performance got under way, they acted out a little scene where Nikita was in the dentist's chair.

However, many viewers were unimpressed and said it was "ridiculous".

"Putting a 'dentist' theme to 'I Love Your Smile' by Shanice, is just a bit TOO literal for me!!" one tweeted, while another said the scene was "pointless".

"What was the point of the dentist chair?!" someone else asked.

Another viewer posted: "A DENTIST office??? Why? Who comes up with these themes."

One said: "Did anyone else get really confused about the theme of Ellie and Nikita’s dance, thinking it was dentist themed? I only realised it was about smiling at the very end."

Someone else remarked: "Shoehorning in a trip to the dentist because the music is I love your smile is a low point, even for #strictly!"

Several fans of the BBC show said they would rather see the celebs just get on and dance and ditch the little themed scenes.

"Can’t we get rid of the farms, airlines, dentist surgeries etc and just stick to dancing?" asked one.

"They waste so much on this ridiculous stuff it’s amazing they find time to learn the dance."

But others said they rather enjoyed those moments.

One commented on Twitter: "I’m obsessed with the random props and sets that the #strictly couples use for less than 2 seconds of their dances and then just abandon! The random dentist chair? The plane cabin?

"It’s so campy and such a waste of money – I love it."
