The Strictly Come Dancing judges often come under fire from fans who disagree with their comments but this year in particular they are being slammed for ‘inconsistency’ and favouritism.
Complaints range from the judges being harsher on the female contestants, to being inconsistent about how significant errors are.
Week six of the competition saw HRVY land the first perfect score of this year, the earliest it’s ever been given in a series.
Clara fared less well as she scored 18 and was told by the panel that she had forgotten some of the routine, amidst other flaw-noting.

But are any of the criticisms levelled at the judges fair?

Harvey was good but I don’t think that was worth 10’s.. the judges are obsessed with him #Strictly

OK @bbcstrictly so @MOTSI_MABUSE tells Bill she noticed a couple of mistakes in his routine but that it “doesn’t matter” yet any female celebrity who makes a mistake is majorly critiqued by the judges for it! I like Bill but I’m sick of the inconsistency of the judges #Strictly

Once again the judges are all over the place with voting. Not consistent, no sense at all. Voting for couple that shout loudest as there is no audience. I must be watching a different strictly, no one has been perfect. #Strictly

#Strictly scoring is all over the place tonight. Not sure the judges are watching the same dances I am. Hope @maisie_smith_ is not in the dance off again as she’s a natural & obvs a great dancer. #StrictlyComeDancing #SCD #scd2020

A 9 for JJ for that bland Viennese waltz? Better than Ranvir and Bill according to the judges? The scoring is making me irrationally angry this week. 😤 #Strictly

The scoring tonight is so bad! The judges screwed themselves initially over scoring the car crash that was Clara and Alijaz at the beginning #Strictly

Why not a single negative comment for JJ from the judges? Everyone else gets slaughtered 🤔#Strictly

The #strictly judges are so biased towards the male contestants but so harsh to the women and it is just so tiringgggggg

Even viewers can’t seem to agree on what the judges are allegedly doing ‘wrong’! But what do you think?
