Dan still stays in

In last week’s live show, Craig scored Dan a six.

However, even though he received relatively low scores across the board, Dan survived the dance-off.

Instead, it was Tilly Ramsay who left the show.

Some viewers thought this was a “fix”, and Dan soon responded to the accusations.

“Thank you to everyone who is sending lovely messages and enjoying us having fun on #Strictly,” he wrote on social media.

“And to the few who say ‘just leave’,  ‘Aren’t you ashamed?’, ‘You’re a disgrace’, ‘It’s a fix’ (which I don’t get), or ‘Who is voting for them?’… IT’S A TV SHOW!”

During his interview with Fubar, Craig also called for the introduction of transgender contestants.

“I think dance is a platform for anybody no matter who you are or where you’re from.

“Humans have been dancing since the cave men were dancing around fires for fertility and rain.

“We’re social, we like dancing, we like celebrating and I think it’s time to do that.”
