- Craig Labels Ola 'Boring' Over 'Strictly' 'Fix' Claims
Last month, Ola raised eyebrows when she suggested the judging panel were being told by producers to under-mark and over-mark certain contestants, in order to deliberately change their position on the leaderboard.
While the BBC were quick to deny the accusations, as was ‘Strictly’ head judge Len Goodman, it has now been reported that Ola has held a meeting with the BBC’s Head of Entertainment, Katie Taylor, who has vowed to look into her claims.
A source tells The Sun: “The BBC took Ola’s claims seriously and promised to check them out before the next series.”
Ola’s initial comments came shortly after she announced that she was stepping down from the show, after dancing on ‘Strictly’ for just short of a decade.
She said at the time: “As a dancer you can’t cheat me…
“In my opinion they know how many votes people scored in the previous weeks and then they try to influence their position on the leaderboard. Why else would they over-mark someone?”
After reportedly meeting with BBC bosses, she’ll be dancing on ‘Strictly’ for the final time this weekend, with The Sun’s insider continuing: “She obviously didn’t want to leave on a bad note so was pleased to have the conversation.
“She’s delighted to be returning for this weekend. It’s going to be an emotional few days.”
It has since been claimed that she will be taking part in January’s series of ‘Celebrity Big Brother’, following in the footsteps of her husband, James Jordan, who was a finalist last summer.
Just four couples remain in this year’s ‘Strictly’, with Kellie Bright, Katie Derham, Georgia May Foote and Jay McGuiness all battling it out this weekend, to take home the Glitterball trophy.
