Strictly Come Dancing‘s professional dancers have reportedly requested for a ban to be put on social media stars, due to their large online following.
YouTuber, Joe Sugg reached the final of the competition in December and the dancers reportedly feel that he had an “unfair advantage” because of his loyal fanbase.
“Joe’s huge popularity caused some tension last year after he was being voted to stay in the show each week,” a source told The Sun.
“He wasn’t the best dancer, so his place on the show was purely based on his fanbase. Now the pros are going to unite and ask for no social media personalities for a year, to give everyone a level playing field,” they claimed.
“The professionals talk regularly discuss on different points relating to the show and this has been a hot topic.”
While Joe reached the final, documentary maker, Stacey Dooley took home the Glitterball Trophy in 2018.
