Fans of Strictly Come Dancing are calling for the cancellation of the Sunday spin-off show after this week’s elimination result leaked, leaving fans reeling. Agh.

As the results of the BBC show are filmed straight after Saturday night's live show, it's easy for Twitter stirrers to ruin Sunday's surprise. So much so, it has become customary to find out via social media which contestant has left the competition way before the ‘live’ show is due to air. Understandably, some fans aren't happy.

This Saturday night saw a movie week theme, with particular highlights including Bake Off star John Whaite and partner Johannes Radebe’s Pirates of the Caribbean inspired paso doble which earned them a near-perfect 39 out of 40.

But it’s not just down to the judges whether they make it through to the next week - it could all change with the incorporation of the viewer’s votes, which are all calculated after each pairing has danced.

After the spoilers about who left began circulating social media, many fans took to Twitter to unleash their frustration, with one user writing: "They really just need to get rid of Sunday night and do a longer live show on a Saturday......half the time some muppet on here will just spoil it all for everyone."

Another fan said: "They only started doing Sundays to rival the X Factor who did it - so now that X Factor isn't on anymore can they put the results back on Saturday again?! #Strictly"

Sunday's episode saw Katie McGlynn leave the show after being in the bottom two opposite Judi Love.
