Strictly Come Dancing: Fans furious as major distraction ruins Take That’s performance

Strictly Come Dancing fans were left furious after a major issue ruined Take That’s performance on tonight’s results show.

Viewers were delighted to see Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald at the Blackpool extravaganza.

However, for the second time this weekend, viewers spotted problems with the special guest performance.

Rather than sound issues, it was actually the band’s dodgy dad dancing that distracted Strictly fans.

Some claimed they had committed the ‘ultimate Strictly sin’ by bringing their own dancers to the studio, then things got even worse when they took to the dance floor themselves.

Outraged viewers took to Twitter to slam Take That for their cringe dancing in the Tower Ballroom.

One unhappy viewer said: "Memo to Take That… please leave the dancing to the professionals… "

Another added: "And @takethat commit the ultimate #Strictly sin… bringing your own dancers! Where’s my pros at?!"

A third said: "Anyone else cringing at the ‘dancing’ Take That (or, as I prefer to call them, Gary and his back up singers) are doing @bbcstrictly right now? #Strictly"

With Strictly going up against the X Factor results show, it meant Take That were competing with former bandmate Robbie Williams.

X Factor judge Robbie wasn’t actually on the show as he has been forced to take time out for his tour.

But his wife Ayda Field was on the live results show alongside Robbie’s replacement – music legend Nile Rodgers.

This is the second time this weekend that viewers have found fault with the guest performances.

Strictly fans spotted a big problem with Gloria Estefan’s performance on Saturday night.

The 80s icon wowed the crowd with her sensational opening number to kick off Blackpool week.
