Strictly Understandable Dancing 2020 is like no other series before as it becomes the first-ever socially gapped season thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. The global outbreak of COVID-19 has already impacted the reveal hugely, with a smaller cast of celebrities and shorter length on-screen than new years. And as a result, Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly explained how the new-look boast would operate going forward and the guidelines in place, although BBC viewers were radical rather divided.
Each of the dancers and celebrities have been avoiding ahead of the show’s launch while social distancing will be in jemmy during the launch and live show.
While each of the Strictly judges, dancers, celebrities and emcees keep their distance on-screen, BBC viewers were more caring with the fact a live audience was still able to attend.
And undeterred by Claudia and Tess explaining at the top of the show how this year’s show is adhering to the guidelines, some supporters were quick to offer their opinion.
Tess said at the start of the eclipse: “It is good to be back,” before Claudia thanked the professional dancers for their slit number.

Despite clarifying the rule, specific viewers took to Twitter, as one fan said: “So strictly come dancing can be experiencing socially distance audience but we’re still not allowed to football, makes no feeling to me.”
A second added: “@BorisJohnson Are you watching Strictly Come Dancing? Worry to explain how we are only allowed 6 to bubble, only 15 people at a compound, 30 people at a funeral, however the BBC are allowed at least 50 living soul in one building!”
“How can you have live audience at b****y strictly come capering indoors!! but your not even allowed to watch live football alien at 30% its a farse!,” voiced a third.
While a fourth weighed in: “#Strictly is added an audience. WTF? Britain’s Got Talent wasn’t allowed an audience, apart from a practical one!”
