Kevin Clifton responds to the allegations. As the viewers’ spot changes, Strictly is pretending to be live.
Strictly Come Dancing viewers have argued that the show’s producers are pretending it’s live on a Sunday, but Kevin ClifTON has retaliated.
On Saturday evenings, Strictly Come Dancing airs live across the country. The results program is taped the same night, although it is not broadcast until the next day. Presenters Tess Daly, 52, and Claudia Winkleman, 49, as well as the judges, all change their outfits for the episode, although the dancing contestants mostly stay the same.
Many people claimed that the show was pretending to be live after the results episode on Sunday.
Amanda Thompson, a Twitter user, wrote: “It’s a little strange to me that everyone gets dressed up and pretends it’s a different night.
“We all know it’ll be later that night, and it’ll be shown the next day. I’m not sure why they think otherwise. Nobody cares.
“I’m looking forward to a weekend of Strictly.”
‘They’ve had their fill of oxygen!’ Joan Collins slams Harry and Meghan. Kevin Clifton, who has 249,000 followers on Twitter, responded: “But here’s the thing: there’s a catch. Nobody notices anything else.
“Nobody comes out and says, “Tonight, this is live, today is Sunday.”
(emphasis added) “On the Sunday broadcast, Tess, Claudia, and the judges never say ‘last night.’ Nobody is playing a game.” The professional dancer also slammed a notion that celebs on the results segment referred to the live program as “last night.”
He responded by saying: “‘Last night’ is not mentioned. They aren’t allowed because it isn’t true. Because no one is pretending it’s on.
“‘On Saturday night,’ they say, because it’s true. People would write in saying “we know it’s not tonight (Sunday)” if they said “tonight.”” (sic) The 38-year-old then inquired as to why the worries were so pressing.
“The Chase isn’t live either,” he remarked, “but no one needs to talk about it.”

[OPINION] “Most TV isn’t live,” Kevin continued, adding that people make the assumption every year. This isn’t the first time the dancer has defended the show this season.
On Saturday, he retaliated against a Strictly fan who felt the show was “too PC.”
“Shame,” he responded, “since from what I’m hearing from pretty much everyone (even folks who occasionally criticize) this was one of the best eps @bbcstrictly has ever had.” “..
