After taking the decision to quit BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing at the end of this series, Ola Jordan has hit out at the show, claiming the leaderboard is fixed. In an interview with The Sun, Jordan claimed couples were being “over-marked” and “under-marked“. “In my opinion they know how many votes people scored in the previous weeks and then they try to influence their position on the leaderboard. Why else would they over-mark someone?“.
When quizzed on why she was leaving the show, she stated that she’d “been thinking about it for a long time. It’s a huge thing as ‘Strictly’ has been such a massive part of my life for so long and I’ve made so many great friends, but it’s time to go“.
