Gordon Ramsay’s daughter Tilly found herself in the Strictly Come Dancing bottom two for the second week in a row, but was chosen to stay in the competition by all four judges
Strictly Come Dancing fans have accused the judges of saving Tilly Ramsay simply because her dad Gordon was in the studio audience.
Tilly, 20, found herself in the bottom two for the second week running and went head-to-head in the dreaded dance off with Sara Davies.
Luckily for Tilly and her dance partner Nikita Kuzmin, all four judges decided to save them and sent Dragons’ Den star Sara home.
However, viewers watching at home felt that the only reason Tilly was saved is because fiery TV chef Gordon was sat feet away.
Taking to Twitter, one person posted: “No way Tilly would have won that if Gordon hadn’t been in the audience. #Strictly.”
Another person posted: “100% convinced Tilly was only saved because her famous dad was in the audience. #Strictly.”
A third viewer asked: “Did the judges save Tilly cos her dad was sitting behind them?”
And a fourth person pondered: “@bbcstrictly Did they save Tilly because her mum and dad were in the audience? #Strictly.”
Someone else said: “#Strictly Judges umm let keep Tilly … her father Gordon is watching how lovely!”
And another asked: “They all too scared of Gordon to vote Tilly off ? #Strictly.”
The comments come after a source claimed that Tilly is a favourite because bosses want to entice her dad to the BBC.
“There’s a feeling that there’s some blatant favouritism going on here – that they are pushing Tilly to win, or at the minimum get to the final, because they want to nick her dad,” the TV source told The Mail on Sunday.
Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 6:35pm on BBC One.
