Former contestant Joe Calzaghe has revealed that the dance show 'Strictly Come Dancing' is fixed by the BBC. He claimed that producers of the show engineered his exit from the show after he allegedly argued with them about dance rival Craig Kelly.
Mr Calzaghe and his dance partner Kristina Rihanoff were on the BBC contest for five weeks. Joe made a comment about Craig Kelly, and his dance partner Flavia Cacace, which irked the producers and made them throw him out of the competition. "We had the highest votes every week, the producers told us. Then all of a sudden we lost out in the judges' vote. Something was up," the Daily Mail quotes Joe Calzaghe as saying.
However, he declined to reveal what he had said to upset producers. "I know it's down to something I said about Craig Kelly. It was worse than a swear word. They were really angry with me. So you can say it - 'Strictly Come Dancing' is a fix. I don't care, we shouldn't have gone out so early," he added
Meanwhile, a BBC spokesman has denied his claims saying any suggestion the show is fixed is ridiculous. He further said that the judges base their opinion on the quality of the dancing.
