Strictly fans complain moments into show as Tess Daly makes repeat wardrobe 'blunder'

Strictly Come Dancing fans were left complaining moments into the live show on Saturday as host Tess Daly welcomed viewers back to the BBC One ballroom show.

The TV presenter appeared in the studio wearing a stunning pink shift dress, as she was joined by co-host Claudia Winkleman.

However, fans couldn’t help but notice with pair of black knee high boots she had paired the dress with, leaving many wondering why the BBC show’s wardrobe department had styled the look after a similar fashion faux-pas in recent weeks.

Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: “Seriously, what does Tess's dresser have against her? Constantly putting ugly boots with a nice dress.”

Another echoed: “Are boots in style or does the Strictly wardrobe department hate Tess?”

Another fan asked: “How does Tess always manage to ruin her outfits with just one accessory or embellishment – why the black boots with that dress?? It would look so much better with high heel shoes.”

“Tess’ boots don’t go with her dress again. Does she keep forgetting her right shoes?” another asked.

Another added: “Why would Tess wear a strapless fluorescent pink dress with long black boots Strictly they don’t go together.”

“Ugly boots with gorgeous dress again for Tess,” one wrote as another added: “OMG Tess Daly those boots are WRONG.”

Hosts Tess and Claudia welcomed Strictly Come Dancing viewers as the BBC One show prepares to return to Blackpool next week for the first time in two years.

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

Instead of the studio’s ballroom floor, the celebrities travel to the iconic Blackpool Tower Ballroom to sashay onto the dance floor in front of judges Motsi Mabuse, Craig Revel Horwood, Anton Du Beke and Shirley Ballas.

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.
