Strictly to stop during lockdown?

Strictly viewers worried lockdown will force show off air after Claudia Winkleman hint

Could lockdown be coming for Strictly?

The new lockdown has left Strictly Come Dancing viewers concerned that the BBC series will be forced off air.

Host Claudia Winkleman, 48, did little to appease their fears as she seemed to drop a huge hint about the show’s future on last night’s show (October 31).

The comment wasn’t lost on viewers, who quickly wondered if the show might have to be stopped or suspended altogether.

What did Claudia say about lockdown on Strictly?

Poor Jamie took a pasting from the judges for his dance, with Craig being particularly savage.

“The ballroom bit was really bad,” he said

Claudia tried to console the reality star and said: “I think he loved it, really loved it.

Of course you’re winning! Let’s all go night night, we might have to anyway.

“I think you should prepare yourself for a 10.”

When he received average marks, Jamie jokingly asked if he was winning.

“Of course you’re winning, give him the Glitterball! Let’s all go night night, we might have to anyway,” Claudia replied.

How did viewers react to Claudia’s comment?

Viewers were quick to respond to Claudia’s comment.

One repeated the phrase with pair of eye emojis next to their comment.
