Strictly Come Dancing judges slammed for ‘objectifying’ Kelvin Fletcher

If he were a woman, it wouldn't happen, they claim

Kelvin Fletcher left the judges on Strictly Come Dancing hot under the collar last night as he and Oti Mabuse performed a sizzling rumba.

Those now-infamous hips appeared to hypnotise the panel, with Craig Revel Horwood calling the routine filth.

Shirley Ballas said her temperature had been raised and she’d felt herself go red.

The steamy performance – to Ain’t No Sunshine, by Bill Withers – was rewarded with 36 points, nine from each of the judges.

It was clear from the comments on Twitter that some viewers at home were feeling similarly hot under the collar.

Some went as far as to suggest they had been aroused by it.

However, some viewers have described the judges’ comments as fawning and leching, with one even suggesting it is ‘sexual harassment’.

They feel it is double standards, as noone on TV would be speaking to a woman in those terms…
