    102.MrsArcanum ...MrsA. The problem appears to be that the BBC Strictly moderators seem to be selective on what they respond to or pass onto the powers that be!

    Perhaps they could get hold of the old clapometer that they used to use on Opportuity Knocks! lol

    Really happy that the dance off is back! i don't care if ,many of you feel that if you spend your money you should be able to choose- of you don't want to spend the money, don't vote! And please, the judges do get it wrong sometimes, but most often they get it spot on, and the public have been doing well, but with the dance off it brings life back into the sunday show, and then nobody can say who goes out oh i didn't get a chance to showcase what i can do- frankly, if you could do it, it would show and the judges would vote for you! GOOD OLD BBC!!!!

    @ Badger128. Have said the same elsewhere about the studio audience deciding if we must have a Dance Off. At least they will have seen the couples involved at first hand, and get some small say in the result without bias. After all, they cannot vote otherwise.

    100 gorscot: Unfortunately I fear the Dance off must stay for the season. It would not be fair on Johnny Ball if he wasn't in last place after the viewers vote.

    As I said in my comment 97, perhaps rather than the judges picking their favorite, let the studio audience vote.

    Glad to see the number of posters commenting about the fraudulent return of the dance-off. We are once again being asked to waste money voting to "save" people when the viewers vote can be overturned by the judges! Have they learned nothing from the Tom Chambers fiasco, which given this wrong decision could happen again this season. This is arrogant contempt for the viewers, does nothing to prevent the "wrong" couples being in the dance off (as per last week, IMHO) and produces an event rightly described by other posters as like watching paint dry! Better to give more time on the 'Sunday' show to the professional group dances, or go back to a short second show on the Saturday. The production team should admit they got this wrong and scrap the dance-off NOW!

    Thanks to neorich and MrsArcanum for the praise for my suggestion but having returned to thinking about it, it would be difficult to apply that suggestion.

    If Richard-Erin and Jerry-Anton are the bottom two and the public vote to keep Richard but Richard did the worst Dance-Off and all the judges went with Jerry to save which means Richard is eliminated that I think would leave the judges and the public at a bit of an impasse. A stalemate. It would only work IF the show makes little or no money as Mrs Arcanum said in post 80.

    But as neorich said in post 75 it would also dispel the tension and mystery also of wondering who is in the Dance-Off this week if we know the bottom two are automatically through to the Dance-Off.

    Thanks for the praise anyway you two.

    @ BruciesWig. Think the cost of the calls is for providing the lines and the short mobile numbers which is why it only costs 15p.

    63.stephalex said - Those in the dance off should have been Nicky and Karen and Michael and Natalie!!!!!! BBC sort this out this is a DANCE competition!!!!!!

    The BBC cant fix it. All they can do is count the viewers votes. If they "fixed it" we would be back to the bad old days! It's the age old problem of the BBC scripting the phrase "Vote for your favorites" wheras it should be "Vote for who you think were the best dancers"

    As for the Dance Off. Rather than letting the judges decide, how about putting it to the Studio Audience?

    MrsArcanum @ 80

    Thanks, I didn't realise or had forgotten that. Does it just go to the phone companies then?
