Strictly bosses are said to be ‘shocked’ and ‘horrified’ after the shows judges booted Aston Merrygold from the show.

Aston Merrygold was voted out of Strictly Come Dancing in one of the biggest shock result nights the show has recently faced.

Fans of Strictly have branded Sunday’s show a ‘fixed’ accusing the judges of “manipulating the vote” – Sunday’s pre-recorded result show was leaked online.

JLS star, Aston was favourite to win this year’s competition, but he was knocked out on Sunday evening after facing Mollie King and partner AJ in the dance-off.

Bruno said that Aston’s dance had “losted its style” and Shirley said it “wasn’t his best”.

Strictly producers ‘gasped in astonishment’ when the result was announced.

An insider told The Sun: “Behind the scenes, the crew were left open-mouthed by the decision and feared it would spark a bad reaction from fans.

“Of course the public vote is a major factor but ultimately the judges make the final call.”

The source added: “Some of the production team were totally horrified and even annoyed to see such a good dancer get the boot when there is so much more of the series left.”

Aston has responded to the backlash of being booted from Strictly in an Instagram post, he said: “Ok so lemme do this properly!! @bbcstrictly thank you so much for letting me be apart of such a great year I’ve made some amazing new homies,

“Class of 17 you are all f***ing brilliant can’t wait for our catch up night out.. good luck to you all!! Every single person that commented, posted, voted every week thank you so much for the love and chance to do what I love to do most.. ENTERTAIN!!
