The latest casualty of the Strictly dance floor is DJ Vick Hope and she has come out and revealed that there was ''stunned silence'' when it was announced that she was out of the competition. 


The 28-year-old, who is partnered with new pro dancer Graziano di Prima, battled it out against comedian Seann Walshe and Katya Jones. 


It was a tense dance-off, not least because Seann and Katya were still dealing with the backlash after they were spotted kissing outside a London pub. 


While both couples were at the bottom end of the leaderboard, in the dance-off it was arguably Vick who performed the better thought by judge Craig Revel Horwood who voted to keep her in.


However, other judges Darcy Bussell, guest judge Alfonso Ribiero and head judge Shirley Ballas all opted to save Seann.



Now, Vick has said that the judges discussed matters with the producers and hinted that there was some element of fixing in relation to the result.


She spoke about it on her radio show saying, ''it's not the best kisser that gets through.”


She went on to hint that the judges spoke to the production team before making their decision.


She said, ''there was a conflab with the producers and then they gave their decision. There was this stunned silence, it was a really weird atmosphere.”


When it came to head judge Shirley's particularly harsh behaviour towards Vick, she admitted that she did feel weird about it. 


Vick said, ''It was from week one that people were suggesting there was something there, I don’t know. It’s been consistent and Saturday night I really felt it was just weird, wasn't it? I’d never really been spoken to like that. She really relished in it.”


Fans of the show were quick to take to social media and write about their disappointment at Vick's elimination. 






What do you think, was it the right result?
