BBC Strictly Come Dancing fans furious as they issue demand over Bobby Brazier

Strictly Come Dancing fans have ordered judge Craig Revel Horwood starts being more fair to EastEnders star Bobby Brazier and his dance partner Dianne Buswell

Strictly Come Dancing fans have demanded Craig Revel Horwood “stop” after claiming he keeps on undermarking Bobby Brazier.

The EastEnders star and his dance partner Dianne Buswell performed the cha cha to ‘Come On-A My House’ during the BBC One show’s annual Halloween special on Saturday night. After their performance, the judges – Craig, Motsi Mabuse, Shirley Ballas and Anton Du Beke – awarded them 30 points.

Bobby, who plays Freddie Slater in the long-running soap, and his dance partner channelled Hansel and Gretel with a house made of sweets and it wowed fans. However, some Strictly viewers felt this score was unfair and continued to claim that the TV star and Australian professional dancer are being ‘undermarked’.

Many took to social media to point the finger of blame at Craig and one wrote: “Craig score was absolutely ridiculous – im fed up with them getting under-marked – SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN MORE 9s” while another put: “Petition for Craig to stop under marking Bobby and Dianne #Strictly” as a third said: “Undermarked AGAIN!! When some of the others are getting 9s for the most basic of dances and hardly dancing the basics and then performances like this get a 6? Just ridiculous.”

It’s clear the pair think a lot of each other, with Dianne describing Bobby as her “rock” during a recent tearful chat with Claudia Winkleman. They have struck up a close bond on and off the dancefloor with the EastEnders actor even admitting he is ‘falling in love’ with his professional dance partner.

It has now been claimed that Dianne is trying to ‘maintain a distance’ from affectionate Bobby, with a recent TV appearance giving away some tension in their bond. The dance pairing appeared on Strictly spin-off show, It Takes Two, in which the they spoke about their routine for Halloween week with host, former Strictly pro, Jannette Manrara.

Body language expert Darren Stanton, speaking on behalf of Betfair Casino, told Entertainment Daily that there were signs that Dianne was looking to keep their relationship as teacher and student and was seemingly shutting down any movements from Bobby that might insinuate that they are more than friends..

Dianne has been in a relationship with YouTuber Joe Sugg since 2018, when they were paired together on the BBC dance show, revealing their romance after they had narrowly missed out on winning the series. The body language expert indicates that while Dianne and Bobby have a close relationship, she is looking to keep it strictly professional in front of the cameras.

Stanton said: “Dianne and Bobby generally do have a deep connection and deep rapport. I’ve previously noticed that Dianne can find Bobby slightly overpowering, however she’s got used to him now to some degree. There are still a few tell-tale signs that show there is a bit of a disparity between the dynamic of the two of them, as Bobby can be quite full on and a complete firecracker.”

Darren then gave examples from the show in which Bobby was trying to impose himself on Dianne. He continued: “Bobby had his arms spread out across the couch. I think he was unconsciously making himself bigger as if to say ‘Look at me’. He’s quite a theatrical and larger-than-life character. There were a few times when he looked at Dianne a certain way, which wasn’t reciprocated from her part. He gives a lot of prolonged eye contact and appears tactile, but she doesn’t. At one point, he put his head on Dianne’s shoulder, which wasn’t reciprocated again.”
