Strictly Come Dancing spoiler leak leaves fans satisfied with rumoured elimination

Strictly Come Dancing fans have been left feeling content after an online leak revealed which BBC star is rumoured to be leaving in tomorrow's dance off.

The 20th series of Strictly is once again being hosted by Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman, with Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Anton Du Beke returning as judges.

The remaining Strictly couples took to the dancefloor once again as the BBC One show returned to Blackpool on Saturday evening, for the first time in two years.

The much-loved themed episode had been suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic but returned for the 2022 edition of the hit ballroom dancing show.

Instead of the studio’s ballroom floor, the celebrities travelled to the iconic Blackpool Tower Ballroom to sashay onto the dance floor as we hit the halfway point of this series.

Although fans have to wait until Sunday's instalment on BBC One to learn of the results, a certain Twitter account appears to have given away the name of the eliminated contestant.

While the elimination will not be confirmed until Sunday evening, the Twitter account has been a long-running way for fans to find out who leaves.

Unlike in previous weeks viewers appeared to be content with the result of the latest leak, with one writing: "Zero complaints about this week’s result #StrictlySpoiler."

A second posted: "Oh phew the result went the right way."

As a third penned: "The right result."

And a fourth declared: "Really happy about this."

While a fifth added: "Just saw the result, very happy this person has finally gone! #StrictlySpoiler."

The Mirror Online has chosen not to reveal who leaves the competition or where the news can be found.

While Saturday's show saw the remaining celebrities take to the dance floor with their professional partners, Sunday is when the elimination is aired.

At the end of every episode of Strictly we hear presenters Tess and Claudia tell us to "keeeeeep dancing" before they disappear from our screens.

However, no one actually leaves the studio at that point because the show carries on late into the night.

After a short break for the public to get their votes in, the judges, dancers and presenters all come back wearing different outfits so they can film the results show.

Along with the costume changes, everyone keeps referring to "last night" when they discuss the main show so they can create the illusion that it hasn't been pre-recorded.

This comes after Ellie Simmonds became the sixth celebrity to depart the dance floor in Strictly after facing Molly Rainford in the dreaded dance-off.

Both couples were voted to perform their routines again, with Ellie and professional dance partner Nikita Kuzmin performing their charleston to Too Darn Hot from Kiss Me Kate.

Molly and her dance partner Carlos Gu then performed their foxtrot to You Make Me Happy by My Sun and My Stars in a bid to impress the judges and remain in the competition.

Ultimately, all four judges decided to save Molly and Carlos from elimination, leaving Ellie and Nikita to go home.

Strictly Come Dancing returns on Sunday evening on BBC One.
