What did Twitter think of Tumble?

We've had dancing, ice skating and diving so, naturally, now there's gymnastics. BBC1's Olympic-inspired Tumble kicked off last night at London's Elstree Studios with a string of brave (or naive?) celebs honing their skills on the hoops, vault, floor and more. And we were there. Yes, RadioTimes.com had front row seats to the action to bring you the inside gossip from inside Tumble's glitzy studio...

But what did you lot make of it? Well, you took to Twitter in your droves to pass judgement on the lycra-tastic show - and opinion was mixed... @Sarahm68 and @kennethwilsonuk are already hooked:

But @strictlycad had her finger poised over the fast-forward button...

The surplus of buff, topless, male gymnasts certainly went down a treat with viewers (no surprises there, eh?)

And triple Commonwealth champion Max Whitlock certainly enjoyed himself:

A fair few of you were befuddled by the low scoring that followed the judges' high praises.

Poor Lucy Mecklenburgh was left sitting at the bottom of the leaderboard, despite TOWIE co-star Billie Faiers' good wishes.

And she wasn't the only famous face to have their say on the night's proceedings... 

However, certain tweeters were less than impressed by the show's bonkers format and rhinestone/lycra explosion:

While others never dared to switch on the telly box.

If they had, they'd have seen Alex Jones's very own "Adele Dazeem" moment...

And plenty of Tumble-tastic celebrities winning over the crowds on Twitter:

And while the ratings may not have put many smiles on BBC faces this morning...

... They did manage to snag an appeaance from Mr Motivator, arguably the highlight of the night.

Until next week!
