      Not that I watch Strictly Come Dancing, but...

      Just read this article:

      Strictly Come Dancing - News - Votes rolled over after 'Strictly' tie - Digital Spy

      Smells a bit fishy to me. The final is always supposed to have 3 contenders, but this year (again) was only going to be 2 due to John Sergent pulling out.

      Now the BBC 'accidently' make an error which means that votes are carried over and no-one goes out in the semi's and so leaving 3 in the final as per original plan.

      Hmmmmm... or have i misunderstood what happens? (I honestly don't watch it, no really, just read the stories on digispy).

      Not strictly true, it is explained in the article but basically they had to way to separate the contestants so the three of them are going through (which is is supposed to happen unless somebody pulls out earlier as has happened two years running now). The problem the BBC had is that they had no back up plan should this happen.

      I thought that the case was the 2 with the least judges votes go into the dance off where the viewers vote who goes out.

      Now 2 of them received the same score so that there was no bottom 2, just a bottom one and as such the viewer vote was pointless. Now the Beeb could have just evicted the bottom placed couple or do what they did. One choice means they get back on track of having 3 in the final as per plan.

      So did they get the judges to vote in such a way to create this scenario???????
