BBC Strictly fans screaming over Neil Jones reaction to Angela Rippon

Strictly: Angela and Kai receive their scores in Blackpool

Strictly Come Dancing fans were left “screaming” over Neil Jones’ reaction to Angela Rippon’s score.

Angela and her dance partner Kai Widdrington scored a respectable 28 points for their American Smooth on Saturday night.

However, Craig Revel Horwood only gave the duo a six, and when receiving their score, Neil couldn’t help but pull a face.

Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, @titchmousetimeswrote: “Neil’s reactions to judges scores for Angela R just then were hilarious. Actually lol’d #Strictly #StrictlyComeDancing.” (sic)

@kelly_xm_ tweeted: “Angela R hates the criticism #Strictly.”

Other fans complained that Angela “needs to go”, as @gemlouisa3 stated: “Angela Rippon has got to go tomorrow night. A travesty if she doesn’t.”

Although some viewers loved the 79-year-old’s performance as @SallyAnMatthews complimented: “How brill is Angela. I remember watching her present Come Dancing, How Lovely to Come Full Circle x #strictly.”

The bookmakers have also been coming up with their own predictions about who will be eliminated this weekend – and it doesn’t look good for Angela and Kai.

Sam Boswell from BetVictor stated: “In the elimination market, Angela Rippon is the favourite to be the next celebrity eliminated at 1/2.

“Angela and her dance partner Kai are dancing American Smooth to Tea for Two by Ella Fitzgerald.

“She has survived both dance-offs, firstly against Adam and last weekend against Krishnan. I think she’s at risk this weekend.”

He went on: “Close behind her is Annabel; she’s priced up at 9/4. She was the second favourite to be eliminated last weekend on 7/4, so it’s not looking good!

“Annabel and Johannes are dancing the American Smooth to Unchained Melody by Benedetta Caretta. They must give everything it takes to avoid the bottom two.”

Strictly Come Dancing returns on Sunday at 7.20pm on BBC One.
