Strictly Come Dancing 2018: 'Overmarked' Faye Tozer SLAMMED by viewers for

Strictly Come Dancing viewers saw the remaining five celebrity couple perform two dance routines this evening.

And for Steps bandmember Faye Tozer and professional dance partner Giovanni Pernice, they were dancing the Samba first.

Following an energetic and colourful performance Faye and Giovanni were awarded a combined score of 37 points from the judges.

But those watching the show at home, criticised the judges for giving her such a high mark.

Taking to Twitter to discuss the routine, one said: “That samba left me cold. She looked like she as stumbling through it. It was an 8. Not 9s and 10s. Ridiculous #Strictly.”

“Second week running where Faye was grossly overmarked on @bbcstrictly #scd #strictly,” a second tweet read.

Another viewer commented: “Love Faye but that dance was overmarked #Strictly.”

“Judges clearly have favourites. A ten for that samba? Wise up Bruno. And nines from the rest? Also overmarked. Like Faye can dance but that dance did NOT deserve those high marks. #Strictly #scd,” one commented.

However, some thoroughly enjoyed her performance.

“Yes Faye! Well deserved 37, Samba is tough #Strictly,” a fan wrote.

Another remarked: “YESSS FAYE!! That’s how you do the Samba #Strictly.”

“Very good Samba from Faye…one of the more difficult Latin dances #Strictly,” another added.

It comes after the judges comments where they praised her routine highly.

“Well I thought you did very well,” head judge Shirley Ballas commented.

“You had some nice control on your footwork, and you had good bounce.”

Bruno Tonioli said: “You gave us a lot of content of great quality. It was excellent thank you.”

“I though the routine was absolutely incredibly,” Craig Revel Horwood added, “it was really good.” 

“I was so impressed,” Dame Darcey Bussell explained.

“It was a joy to watch, it was like a masterclass. It was nice a natural. 

“It is so difficult and you did a really wonderful performance.”
