Strictly Come Dancing: Viewers in panic mode after technical difficulties blight show

It all got sorted out

Although episode two of Strictly Come Dancing proved to be another extravaganza of sequins and FAB.U.LOUS dancing, the start of the show didn't go as smoothly as it could have done.

So much so, viewers had their heart in their mouths when technical difficulties threatened to derail the whole show.

Strictly having technical issues, sort it out!

Sometime later, host Tess Daly apologised to viewers for the glitches.

"We do apologise to any viewers who may have experienced any transmission problems.

"We are very sorry, but we are a live show," she added.

Although the rest of the show went off without any more problems, viewers took to Twitter to express their exasperation.

"Tess blaming glitches on being live, we are in 2019 now not the 1960s," one wrote angrily.

Another posted: "Argh. The signal cutting out keeps giving me mini panic attacks."

"Strictly having technical issues, sort it out!" a third wrote.
