Well, we don’t think we’ve ever seen a weekend of Strictly Come Dancing live shows end with so much controversy. Why?
It all started normally enough, with Melvin and Anastacia finding themselves in the bottom two after the judges and viewer votes were combined. However, Anastacia picked up an injury, which led to one phrase Twitter really didn’t want to see: no dance-off.

As much as Im not that bothered, surely Anastacia should go home on #Strictly if shes not fit to compete? Feel sorry for that Melvin chap.

However, we said it was a controversial decision, didn’t we? There were also many who thought injured singer Anastacia was right to ke(eee)ep dancing next week.

The first results show wasn’t just about Melvin and Anastacia though. Some people were blown away with the other main news of the night: Ed Balls is still in.
