MICHAELA Stachan has been slammed by Strictly Come Dancing fans for appearing to reveal Simon Rimmer's fate on Sunday Brunch.
The presenter was a guest on the Channel 4 show this morning, and talk turned to Simon's performance on the BBC One dancing show last night.
Channel 4 Strictly Come Dancing fans have blasted Michaela Strachan for appearing to reveal Simon Rimmer's fate on Sunday Brunch BBC Simon ended up bottom of the leader board on last night's show
Asked by Simon's co-host Tim Lovejoy how she thought he had done, Michaela didn't hold back in her critique, saying: "First of all, I’m not talking to you Simon because I’ve been trying to get on Strictly Come Dancing for 10 years. They won’t have me! Then there you are!
“So, I’m going to be a little bit judgemental and say that last night’s performance – you put your heart and soul into it – you looked like you were playing a part in Sweeney Todd quite frankly.”
Tim and the crew were quick to boo Michaela as she laughed, before adding: "You were very stiff, there was still a lot of room for improvement."
Fellow guest Mark Gatiss said he thought Simon had "done brilliantly to get to week six", before Michaela added: "I’m amazed you got to week six – oh, did I say that out loud? That was meant to be in my head.”
Channel 4 Michaela told Simon he was "stiff" before appearing to reveal he had been voted off the show Channel 4 Michaela looked surprised as she realised what she said Channel 4 Simon and co-host Tim Lovejoy looked tense after the apparent gaffe
While Michaela could have been hinting that she thought the chef should have left the show sooner, and was therefore amazed by how far into the competition he had got, many viewers who watch Strictly felt she had revealed the outcome of tonight's results show, which is filmed on a Saturday evening after the live show.
Taking to Twitter to kick off, one wrote: "@SundayBrunchC4 has Michaela Strachan revealed a result? Cue stilted smiles of presenters and other guests in studio".
Another added: "michaela might have just given away that Simon left last night then on Strictly #SundayBrunch" while a third tweeted: "@SundayBrunchC4 so Michaela just confirmed Simon is out of #Strictly".
Indeed, viewers of both shows were up in arms at the alleged gaffe, with another posting: "@SundayBrunchC4 tell Michaela Strachan she's probably just ruined tonight's #bbcstrictly results show by her comments. Stop her now."
BBC Simon had failed to impress the judges with his routine with partner Karen Clifton Susan Calman and Simon Rimmer dance the American Smooth on Strictly Come Dancing
Another tweeted: "So we know now Simon is voted out of Strictly because Michaela Strachan just told him 'you DID your best'. Not surprising really."
A fellow Strictly fan vented: "michaela strachen needs to stop talking in the past tense about @simonrim & @bbcstrictly #SpoilerAlert [sic]".
Strictly fans will have to wait until the results show tonight at 7.15pm to find out which two celebrities end up in the dreaded dance off and who gets sent home by the judges.
