Strictly Come Dancing: Viewers furious about voting issues

Some fans demanded the elimination be cancelled

Fans of Strictly Come Dancing were in uproar last night as voting opened after the quarter-final show.

Viewers opting to cast their vote online were unable to do so as the show closed at 8.10pm.

The BBC website said, ‘The vote is not open yet, please come back later.’ It added that voting would close at 8.40pm and that each registered user was allowed a maximum of three votes.

However, when some viewers were finally able to cast votes they were told they had reached their maximum after just one, or before even voting at all.

Twitter was flooded with complaints.

One wrote: “Online voting not working!! Saying I’ve voted when I haven’t!! Need to vote for @IAmChrisRamsey #Strictly.”

Another said: “Ummm @bbcstrictly what’s up with your online vote it went from being closed to saying I’d already reached my limit. FIX IT PLEASE #strictly #voting #fix.”

The show announced on its Twitter page and that the voting deadline would be extended until 9pm from the original 8.40pm.

But this didn’t satisfy many viewers with some calling for this week’s vote to be null and void.
