I ABSOLUTELY agree with Janet Berry’s comments (The Yorkshire Post, November 5) about Ed Balls. I presume Strictly was intended to bring celebrities with little or no dancing experience to prove their ability with professional dancing partners, with the best dancers coming to the fore.
Ed Balls, I suppose, has provided a certain amount of pantomime entertainment, but he is still in the competition at the expense of obviously better dancers.
Well, whose fault is this? It is of course the public, who are voting.
If the producers of the programme are happy with its format, then I suggest it should be renamed ‘Strictly Entertainment’, as dancing ability does not guarantee a celebrity staying in the competition.
By the public vote, the bottom two couples in last Sunday’s dance-off should never have been there.
