Were they under-marked?
Strictly Come Dancing continues to be hit with fix claims following the latest celebrity elimination.
McFly’s Tom Fletcher and his dance partner Amy Dowden faced off against CBBC's Rhys Stephenson and his partner, Nancy Xu, in the dance-off.
It came down to a split decision, with head judge Shirley Ballas voting to save Tom and Amy, while Motsi Mabuse, Anton Du Beke and guest judge Cynthia Erivo all voted to save Rhys and Nancy.
Fans online have accused the judges of "undermarking" the pair's performance during Saturday's show

Just catching up on #Strictly. Didn't expect to see Tom & Amy in the dance-off so soon. I really didn't expect to see them go home.
You really can't predict this year's competition.

Total fix #Strictly

However, some fans thought the decision was fair
Screaming at everyone claiming it’s a fix because Tom left #Strictly last night 😭😂 Maybe if he done a memorable dance he’d still be in? 🤷🏼♂️

Tired of reading about these 'fixes' on @bbcstrictly . Agreed with the bottom two last night and with Tom leaving. I'm sure people are sad to leave, but someone has to. It doesn't mean it's a fix! #Strictly #SoreLoser

All those calling #Strictly fixed in I ask:
What does the BBC have to gain from it?
How many moaners really bothered to vote?
If everyone who complained voted, the decision wouldn't be wrong.
I love the program, but I am neither a dancer nor an expert. The judges are both.

After being voted out, Fletcher told host Tess Daly: "Honestly I’ve had the best time, I’ve loved every second of it. I’ve made the best friend in Amy, you’ve been amazing, thank you so much for teaching me how to dance.
"I know it was a struggle at times. It’s an amazing show, everyone that works on it, all of you guys have been amazing, I’ve loved getting to know you.
"Thank you so much, it’s been the best experience and I don’t regret a single minute of it, so thank you everyone so much. I’m gutted to leave.”
