Strictly viewers complain Judi Love is given an ‘unfair’ advantage ahead of return

The Loose Women star previously tested positive for COVID

Strictly Come Dancing star Judi Love has been given an “unfair” advantage this weekend, according to viewers.

The Loose Women panellist, 41, was forced to skip last week’s live show after testing positive for coronavirus.

But as she prepares to return with Graziano Di Prima on Saturday (October 30), fans took issue with Judi‘s routine.

How did Strictly fans respond?

However, some fans were far from impressed with Judi’s upcoming Cha Cha.

The star was originally meant to perform the routine on the week she tested positive for COVID.

And viewers believe that it’s given Judi an “unfair” advantage over her fellow celebrities.

How is this fair?

On Twitter, one complained: “It’s not fair that Judi gets the same song and dance as last week. That gives her an extra week to practice it.”

A second added: “It’s unfair surely that she gets to perform the same dance? When Tom and Ugo had to change dance?”

A third wrote: “Tom & I think Ugo had to change their dances & songs how is this fair?”

In addition, a fourth shared: “Why is Judi’s song the same, don’t think it’s a very spooky song. Can’t wait for AJ’s VW to Dangerous Woman the only song I know.”

Another posted: “Surely Judi’s song could have been changed to fit Halloween theme?”

However, others rushed to defend the Strictly star.

One said: “No it doesn’t. She’s been out of action since last week and won’t be back to training until late this week.”

Another pointed out: “She was out of action from Wednesday last week and she won’t get back to training with Graziano until Friday, so she’ll actually end up having *less* training time than usual.”
