Strictly star takes a swipe at judges 'underscoring' Fleur East and Molly Rainford amid fix row | The Sun

A STRICTLY Come Dancing star has taken a swipe at the judges for "underscoring" Fleur East and Molly Rainford.

One dancing star turned the heat up on the fix row as he called the fan-favourite stars the "dance-off sisters".


Dancer Carlos Gu and his partner Molly, 22, sat down with their co-star Fleur, 35, to discuss their time on the BBC One show.

The TV star – who joined the Strictly Come Dancing cast this year – and his singer show partner hit out about their consistent 'underscoring' on Hits Radio Breakfast Show with Fleur East.

He described the singers, who both keep finding themselves in the bottom two of the competition, as the "dance-off sisters".

Fleur and Molly revealed that their close relationship is also helped by the fact they share a dressing room behind the scenes – meaning they often chat about their string of appearances in the bottom two.

"I need the company, especially after the dance off, when we brief each other afterwards," Molly told radio listeners.

"Fleur is the only other one who gets it, everyone else in the competition has never been in the dance off – they’ve been breezing through!"

Fleur added: "My dream would be to get through to the final with my sisters, we have held each other down this whole time."

It comes after ongoing speculation that the Stricly judges have been "under marking" the show's favourite stars in the run up to the final.

Fans have been hitting out on social media that there has been "favouritism", with the female stars often missing out on high scores.

On Saturday night, Strictly fans were left furious as Molly faced the dance off for the FOURTH time.

The singer – who rose to fame on Britain's Got Talent – landed in the bottom two despite scoring an impressive 38/40 points.

One fan fumed: "I can't believe that Molly and Carlos are in the dance-off again. She scored 38/40 her best dance of the series so far.

"She was incredible last night. I don't know why the public don't vote for her she is amazing," while another said, "She danced her a** off."
