Ola also explained her decision to quit the show, revealing that she didn’t want to be there just to “make up the numbers”.

“I don’t want to be part of the show if I’m just making up the numbers. I’ve been offered loads of incredible opportunities, including a tour with Arlene Phillips. I’m really excited about what the future holds.”

A BBC spokesman denied Ola’s claims about the show being fixed, branding them “nonsense”.

“Each judge scores each dance independently, based on its merits and on their expert opinion,” they said.

‘Strictly Come Dancing’ airs tonight at 6.50pm on BBC One.
