Strictly Come Dancing: Viewers convinced Mike Bushell is done

He's survived three dance-offs

Despite a week of fierce criticism, Mike Bushell came out and gave it his all for this week's Strictly Come Dancing routine.

He and partner Katya Jones performed a Paso Doble, which was met with mixed reaction from the judges.

Many viewers shared the same opinion... that Mike, after surviving three dance-offs, will not make it as far as Blackpool next weekend.

One said on Twitter: "I think Mike will go home after this performance. It’s time."

Another wrote: "Go. Home. Mike."

A third posted: "Surely to goodness Mike is going home this week?!"

Supportive partner Katya said: "I don't care what anyone thinks, I think he was amazing."

I think Mike will go home after this performance.

Mike has had a really tough time, with some viewers being extremely vitriolic about the BBC Breakfast presenter still being in the competition.

They feel he 'robbed' their favourites such as Cath Tyldesley and Emma Weymouth of their place.

And it seems he's getting a little cheesed off with it, understandably.

In a chat with the Daily Mirror, he said: "I tried to report it but they deleted the tweet and deleted the account.

"Often you go onto these accounts and they've only got two followers.

"It's just someone having a dig. I never for a millisecond took it seriously. No way.

"Now there's been a few saying they're not going to watch unless I resign but we don't take any of that seriously.

"It's ridiculous! It's a fun show, we trust the judges. They're the experts.

"All you can do is concentrate on your own dance, do your best and cheer everyone else on."
