Strictly fix row as fans claim Max George was ‘kicked off’ show for ‘swearing’
Strictly Come Dancing is facing accusations of "fixing" following Max George and Dianne Buswell's shock exit on Sunday night.
The 32-year-old pop star was the latest celebrity to be given the boot from the BBC dancing competition and fans are convinced it's because he swore live on telly.
Host Claudia Winkelman, who presents the show alongside Tess Daly, was forced to apologise during Saturday night's live show after Max turned the air blue by screaming "f***ing get in" after his performance.
The Wanted hunk accidentally dropped the F-bomb after he completed his impressive American Smooth dance routine with his professional partner Dianne Buswell.
Max could be heard swearing during their closing move and it didn't go unnoticed by viewers, who rushed to discuss the bad language on social media.
Max and Dianne then found themselves in the bottom two with show favourites EastEnders beauty Maisie Smith and her pro dancer Gorka Marquez,
Maisie and Gorka scored 24 out of 30 on Saturday night with their stunning doll-themed routine and Max and Dianne scored 20 points, leaving both couples in fifth and seventh place in the leaderboard retrospectively.
The two pairs had to dance again in Sunday's results show, and Max was sent home after failing to impress the judges.
However, the shock result left fans baffled and they took to Twitter to air their frustration.
One fan ranted: "Sorry but the BBC have 100% rigged that because of Max swearing on last night's show and putting him up against Maisie being an unbelievably capable dancer, they knew he had no chance of staying in. They shouldn’t have turned his mic on anyway."
A second raged: "Did Max get the push just because he got a bit sweary on Strictly? The missus is convinced it's a fix!"
Another wrote: "So he swears live last night and then gets voted of tonight and your telling me this isn't a fix."
While a fourth person commented: "Absolute FIX!!! neither of these two should be in the dance off."
Daily Star Online has contacted BBC for a comment.
The judges were accused of under-marking Maisie, 19, on Saturday after three of her competitors got their first 10s of the series.
Head judge Shirley Ballas shocked viewers when she awarded HRVY, Clara Amfo and Bill Bailey full marks for their performances despite it only being the fourth week of the dancing competition.
Strictly icon Anton Du Beke, who stood in for judge Motsi Mabuse as she self-isolates, also gave Radio 1 DJ Clara a 10 – shooting her to the top of the leaderboard with a whopping 29 out of 30.
Strictly Come Dancing continues on BBC One on Saturday at 7.15pm
