Strictly viewers 'so annoyed' as Molly Rainford faces dance-off again


Actress Molly, 22, has had plenty of experience being in the Strictly Come Dancing dance-off despite consistently achieving some of the top scores. This week’s results show aired on Saturday rather than its usual Sunday slot due to the World Cup coverage. It was quickly revealed Molly and her partner Carlos Gu would face the bottom two again, which left some viewers furious.

Twitter user @eliseoneill199 wrote: “#Strictly so annoyed Molly’s in the dance off, genuinely what the f***.”

@Jasminestormy added: “#Strictly how is molly in the bottom? She danced her a** off!”

@CyclingLain argued: “Molly shouldn’t be in the dance off IMHO #Strictly.”

“Really feel for Molly. She’s an excellent dancer, so it’s obvious that she’s unpopular with viewers. She’s clearly a very sweet girl, and on young shoulders, that must be very hard bless her #Strictly,” @charliecomms1 penned.

@SAPPHSUKI shared: “Molly is tew good at these dance offs VOTE FOR HER #Strictly.” (sic)

@gemma_threlfall posted: “Molly is technically probably the best dancer, I don’t understand why the public aren’t voting for her #strictly.”

As host Tess Daly chatted to the couple after revealing they would be dancing for their place in next week’s show, Molly, who received her highest score of the competition on Friday, commented: “Been here before, I know how it goes.”

Visibly disappointed, she continued: “I’ve just got to give my best performance.”

As the competition began to heat up on Friday’s show, the remaining six celebrities took to the dancefloor and performed to hits from the stage in the ever-popular musical week.

After this weekend, five pairs will remain as the BBC staple edges towards the final, and bookmakers BetVictor have priced up the odds on who’s backed to win.

Favourite to lift the Glitterball Trophy is Hamza Yassin, whose odds stand at 4/11. The wildlife photographer delighted judges on Friday’s show as he performed a Samba with partner Jowita Przystal to Lives in You from The Lion King.

Following closely behind Hamza is Countryfile star Helen Skelton, who dazzled the floor with Gorka Marquez with a steamy couple’s choice routine from the musical Cabaret.

She has current odds of 3/1, while actor Will Mellor is third favourite to win at 14/1.

Sam Boswell from BetVictor explained: “Hamza and Jowita are the 4/11 favourites for the Glitterball.

“We have seen plenty of short-price favourites win Strictly over the years and his journey seems to have really resonated with fans.”

Thankfully for Molly, the judges ended up saving her as they chose to send Kym Marsh and Graziano di Prima home.

Kym gave an emotional goodbye as she thanked Graziano and reflected on her journey in the compeititon.

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Sunday at 7.15pm on BBC One.
