Strictly Come Dancing: Star HITS BACK after fans criticise latest signing

Strictly Come Dancing’s latest celebrity signing, Ashley Roberts, has been forced to defend her spot on the show after fans branded it ‘unfair.’

The BBC One dancing show announced on Twitter this morning that Ashley, 36, will take to the dance floor this year, but her excitement has been overshadowed as fans have pointed out that she’s already a trained dancer.

Ashely was previously a judge on Dancing On Ice and was part of girl group and dance ensemble The Pussycat Dolls, which fans think leaves her at an unfair advantage over the other celebrity contestants.


One fan wrote on Twitter: ‘Rather unfair that Ashley Roberts is a contestant on @bbcstrictly … she’s a professional dancer!! She is obviously going to walk all over the others #unfair #Strictly.’

Another agreed, adding: ‘Ashley Roberts was a judge on Dancing on Ice and was a member of American dance ensemble Pussycat Dolls! Mr Kipling will be a contestant on Bake off next #scd2018.’

A third confused fan wrote: ‘ Ashley Roberts going on strictly and she is legit a trained dancer… what.’
