Strictly Come Dancing fans have been left feeling physically sick after the show’s bizarre camera work is leaving them worse for wear.

Despite the high calibre of dancers this year, it seems some viewers of the hit show might be missing some of the dances altogether.

Legions of fans have taken to social media to complain about getting motion sickness after watching some of the contestant’s particularly speedy dances.

As dancers waltz, quickstep and jive around the Strictly dance floor, the show’s erratic camera work has left watchers feeling dizzy and disorientated.

But viewers aren’t the only ones struggling to keep up with the fast-paced dancing. Numerous celebrity contestants have complained that they’re also suffering with sickness as they learn new dances.

Davood Ghadami suffered so badly while learning the Vienesse waltz that he was forced to wear anti-sickness bands during his Saturday night performance.

A recent routine from Aston Merrygold with professional partner Janette Manrara saw a camera hurtling around them while they danced the waltz.

In fact it was so fast that at one point Janette even lurched towards the camera.

@Trix3bee hinted: “Can’t watch this waltz due to camera work.”

@supadunnie wrote: “The camera work making me feel dizzy like I’ve done the Viennese waltz. Please stop the spinning I can’t see the footwork.”

@chrissieroyal revealed: “I do love #Strictly but sometimes the camera work gives me such motion sickness.”

When asked by The Sun, the BBC refused to comment on fan’s complaints, but did say that Saturday’s show was not only the highest rating programme on the night, but also the highest of the series so far.
