Strictly Come Dancing is edging ever closer to the final, and as the couples continue to fight it out for the Glitterball Trophy, it was Mike Bushell’s turn to leave the competition this week. As he found himself in the dance off alongside Michelle Visage, viewers were left shocked at the news she would have to dance again.
Michelle Visage has been one of the favourites to win the series since it all kicked off back in September, and she has proved to be a fantastic dancer in the competition.
However, tonight, viewers were left confused as the Drag Race judge found herself in the bottom two.
Last night, Michelle wowed with her American Smooth to I Just Want To Make Love To You by Etta James, seeing her score 36 points, and in second place on the leaderboard.
She was the first of the two couples on the dance off to be announced this evening, as viewers quickly took to Twitter to express their shock.

“Do exactly the same, you’re brilliant,” advised Motsi.
As she went up against Mike, judges opted to save Michelle this evening, meaning she made it through to next week’s show which will be aired from Blackpool.
Some viewers branded the show a fix tonight after BBC presenter Mike Bushell had found himself in the bottom two three times prior to this evening.

Some viewers went on to brand tonight’s bottom two a “fix” to get Mike out of the show before next week’s Blackpool special.
“They’ve done this to make sure the judges definitely vote Mike out this time, a clear fix #Strictly”
Another viewer questioned if it was: “A fix to get mike out before Blackpool? #strictly”
Michelle should never have been in the dance off. So glad mike gone out #strictly
As the seven remaining couples fight it out in Blackpool, who will find themselves in the bottom two next weekend?
Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday at 7.05pm on BBC One.
