Strictly Come Dancing: Joe Sugg gets awful score after ‘cheating’ accusations

Strictly Come Dancing viewers have accused Joe Sugg of using a smoke machine to ‘cheat’.

The YouTube sensation performed a Viennese Waltz to David Gray’s This Year’s Love but failed to impress the judges.

Joe nearly ended up kissing his professional partner Dianne Buswell during the raunchy end to the routine.

Strictly fans were not happy that smoke started pouring onto the dance floor during the middle of the performance.

Some claimed that Joe and Dianne were using the smoke to obscure the view of the judges.

However, it seemed like they managed to spot a lot of mistakes as he only scored 29.

They did not think his performance was up to the required standard for the semi-final.

Craig Revel Horwood said: "Way too much rise and fall, it almost became a waltz. All the movement I thought was too harsh and it made it look rigid. I don’t think its your best ballroom to be honest."

Cheeky host Tess Daly replied: "The semi final – he’s bound to be picky."

But the other judges seemed to be in agreement and were equally as critical.

Darcey said: "Wonderful posture – I do feel you have difficult with that continuous rotation. Semi finals, we’re expecting a lot and we want more, more, more. It wasn’t bad it just wasn’t what we expect from you."

Shirley added: "You are our last man standing. You know how much I adore you. It was by far too much rise and fall but your footwork was nice."

After heading upstairs Joe admitted: "I did find it hard. It was a bit harder."

Strictly viewers took to Twitter to accuse Joe of using the smoke to hide his mistakes.

One viewer said: "Smoke covering footwork so cant see mistakes"

"Employing the smoke machine so we can’t actually see if does the moves correctly. I see your tactics," added another.

A third said: "Hmm did Joe and Diane choose the smoke machine to try and obscure their footwork from the judges? Hmm"
