Vick Hope has potentially cut her ties with the BBC after suggesting that Strictly bosses had a hand in her elimination.

The star was given the axe on Sunday night after being put in the dance off against Seann Walsh and Katya Jones.

Since leaving the show, she has admitted shes taken exception to how she was spoken to by head judge Shirley Ballas and claimed she saw producers talk to the judges ahead of her elimination.

Shes come across as a bad loser when theyve done so much to support her. The Beeb wont be having her back, a source told The Sun.

On her Capital Breakfast show the day after her elimination was aired, she was quizzed by Roman Kemp about the frosty relationship she appeared to have with head judge Shirley Ballas.



Co-presenter Roman Kemp told her her: I didnt see it live last night, I was on the plane, I came back, I landed, my mum called me saying “why does Shirley Ballas hate Vick Hope?”

Vicky then simply responded: I wish I knew.

When asked if she felt the hatred was genuine, she told Roman: I think Ive got to be careful with what I say here. It was from week one people were suggesting something was there, and its been consistent.

Saturday night, Ive not really been spoken to like that. She relished in it.

She later also hinted that the producers had a hand in her elimination this weekend, after they ducked in to talk to the judges before the announcement.

We had to have a dance off as well – it was very strange – so after the dance off, then the judges have to give their decisions, she said.

But there was a bit of a conflab with some producers and then they gave their decisions, and it was just stunned silence in the studio, it was a really weird atmosphere.

However, on It Takes Two she took a slightly different stance and said: I respect them [the judges] so much because they are the best in their field that goes without saying, she said on spin-off show It Takes Two on Monday night.

So whatever they say it goes and thats how it works, and I understand thats how the show works and I will do everything I can with this brilliant platform.

This was a brilliant opportunity. They didnt think we were the best couple and thats cool.
