Another added: “Shirley always, without fail, being far too slow to stop faffing about is my favourite recurring gag #scd #strictly.”

Unfortunately not everyone found it funny with another tweeting: “Can someone just wheel Shirley on and deposit her in the right place from now on? She’s clearly incapable of doing it by herself!! #scd #Strictly”
