Strictly Come Dancing professional Graziano Di Prima has come under fire from fans after Vick Hope was eliminated from the contest last night (October 21).

The Italian and his radio DJ celebrity partner were subjected to the dance-off during this weekend's show, losing out to controversial pair Seann Walsh and Katya Jones as the judges sent them packing.

In the aftermath of Vick's exit, many Strictly fans have pointed the finger at Graziano for his under par performances as a pro, leading some to speculate whether she'd have had a better chance in the contest paired up with somebody else.











Spicing things up even more, former Strictlypros Ola Jordan and James Jordan have had their say on Graziano's dancefloor display.

Ola tweeted: "I suggest that @Mr_NJones goes to Vicks trining room and shows her how to cha cha cha," while James said in part: "I honestly can't tell which ones the pro..... it was so bad!!!!" Ouch.

Both chose to mention Neil Jones' omission from this series' pairings, could this instigate a return for Katya's husband next year?





Elsewhere in Strictly land, comedienne Jo Brand has revealed why she's fully against ever appearing on the show.

"I think it just eats your soul," she said. "I've been asked to do it quite a few times, I asked Colin Jackson what it's like. He said the problem is that one or two people take it really seriously and then everyone feels like they have to."

Jo then quipped: "I would just worry that I'd be forced into having an affair with one of the male dancers."

Strictly Come Dancing airs on BBC One.
