Harry Judd, Tom Fletcher’s friend from band, has criticised the Strictly come Dancing judges for their performance on Saturday night’s show.
The former McFly star, 36, performed an emotional routine with his dance partner Amy Dowden last night, to the track On My Own from Les Misérables.
The judges gave Tom and Amy 31 points for their moving routine, but many of the fans thought the judges were unfair. “trying to get him out”.
They were critical of his performance. “lacking heart”.
Tom’s bandmate thought the judges had scored him poorly, so he took to Twitter to share his thoughts.
“7!?!? Come off it,”Harry wrote the article on the social media app.
Viewers of strictly agreed with the conclusion that judges were too rigid in their scoring.
Fans joined the discussion, sharing their criticisms below the tweet “They were unnecessarily harsh on him. also thought it was quite condescending telling him to let it go So unfair @mcflyharry I think you are amazing @TomFletcher you are my winner.”
A second share: “Judges need to be consistent in their voting and not have favourites who make mistakes but get a high score. They even mention mistake then score high.”
“Have to say I’m not a fan of the judging and scores on #Strictly tonight. Tom and Amy were seriously undermarked,”A third comment was made.
During the most recent episode, Tom was overcome with emotion as he paid tribute his little sister Carrie Hope Fletcher.
They share a passion for musical theatre. He says it changed his life. He met his future wife Giovanna at the theatre school.
Both Tom and Carrie were both in theatre at a young age. His younger brother, however, was a huge success in West End.
But not everyone was aware the McFly singer and the Cinderella and Les Misérables star were related, or that they were in fact brother and sister.
Some viewers only realized this when Tom spoke about his sister’s career, and how proud he was that she had achieved her goals.
The two of them met to discuss the upcoming performance. Again, they were overcome with emotion as they spoke about their dreams becoming a reality.
Tom said to his sister that the dance would be a tribute and then revealed the special connection his song has to them all.
He performed to the Les Misérables track On My Own, which Carrie sang when she starred as Eponine – having played Young Eponine years earlier as a child, when she made her debut on stage.
Tom stated that seeing her perform the song was the moment when he realized her dreams were coming true. He sobbed all the way back.
Carrie said to her brother that she was excited to go to the dance and watch him perform the song, because of the special meaning it holds for her and her loved ones.
