Strictly Come Dancing viewers hit out at host Tess Daly during Sunday night's results show after the remarks she made at the end of the dance-off.

Despite Tess wowing fans in an unusual red dress, many hit out at the presenter with some even asking for her to be replaced with Angela Rippon.

The row centred around comments Tess made to eliminated dancer Jayde Adams moments after she found out that she and pro partner Karen Hauer had lost the dance-off to Molly and Carlos and would be sent home.

Tess Daly told Jayde Adams and Karen Hauer as the pair were voted off: "We have genuinely loved having you.

"We're really going to miss you. Thank you for taking part in Strictly Come Dancing 2022. And I don't want to say this, you know I don't! But off you go and take your place for one last dance."

Not everyone was against Tess though, with some viewers backing the host in the face of criticism.

@sunnyflower said: "Tess Daly dresses last night and tonight are gorgeous . At last someone dressing her as the beautiful lady she is . Absolutely stunning I want both. Vernon Kaye is a lucky man !"

@jessmum said: "Tess is looking good this season, must have made friends with the Wardrobe dept #Strictly"

@disabilitydiva said: "Lovin' Tess's frock! #Strictly"

Jadye Adams and Karen Hauer lost out to Molly Rainford and Carlos Gu in the dance off, with the judges unanimously choosing to save Molly and Carlos.

But there were many who felt it was a different Adams who should have departed - with many blasting the public for saving Tony Adams again.
