Fans point out awkward The Greatest Dancer blunder

The mistake caused uproar

The Greatest Dancer fans have pointed out a rather embarrassing blooper from Saturday's launch, as the show's receptionist didn't have her laptop switched on when she checked in contestants at the front desk!

The awkward moment was highlighted by viewers as the show got underway, with one writing: "An hour in and she hasn’t switched her laptop on yet... #GreatestDancer #TheGreatestDancer".

Another onlooker branded the scene "bizarre", posting: "I mean if you’re going to use a laptop as a prop in this bizarre staged reception scene, maybe turn it on? #TheGreatestDancer #GreatestDancer".

An hour in and she hasn’t switched her laptop on yet.

One viewer questioned: "So is the receptionist's laptop just on a really low light or not on at all?? 🤔".

While a fourth added: "HER LAPTOP ISN’T EVEN ON!?🤦🏾‍♀️ Stop it."

Meanwhile, others wondered if receptionist Amelia Wilson was even the real deal.

It comes as reports revealed that the new BBC show only had 14 minutes of dancing throughout the 70-minute programme.
