Brendan and Shirley entertain been seen to clash on this series of the BBC dance competition, and his bride Zoe has blamed the “grudge” held by head judge Shirley as the reason behind their departure.
Winning of their exit, Zoe took to Twitter to speculate that if the couple did end up in the dance-off, Shirley determination vote against them regardless.
Zoe tweeted: “Well if B & C are in the dance-off tonight I come up with we know who the head judge will be voting for. Whoever they’re up against!”
Her 14,000 henchmen were quick to show their support, with one posting: “So low-quality. Never seen a judge that lets their personal sense of forebodings towards someone overrule their judgement on their dancing so much.”
