In the Sun today, (front page- must be no new news!) so must be true!'

'Strictly has been plunged into another fix row, after it emerged the judges watch dancers' dress rehearsals backstage (on monitors) meaning they could discuss scores, and manipulate the leaderboard.
The Sun reveals the judges watch the routines backstage earlier in the day, giving hem hours to prepare their pithy comments. The judges are with a producer who in all likelihood knows the previous week's voting figures...
etc.etc.. etc..
and so it goes on.......

There are added BBC spokesman comments, saying the judges are not in the studio during rehearsals, thought they can access one of many moniters on site to view what is happening..
Loose Lips, Sink Ships !!   or as they say in Jamaice, 'Mouth open, Story fly out!'

I'll be watching closely tonight... especially the group dance.

The judges could discuss scores anyway, without seeing the dances, if they'd been told to favour certain celebs. I'm more amazed to think that they might spend hours coming up with their comments!!

All the judges have to do is watch ITT midweek and they can see how the celebs are doing. You can be as unbiased as you like, but unconsciously they will have certain favourites. Plus after reading comments on this forum, it is hard not to see that there are favourites.

On the other hand, just because a judge sits with a producer, doesn't mean they are being briefed
