Strictly backlash: BBC hit with complaints over same sex dance and 'sexist' language


In its most recent complaints report, the BBC confirmed it received 128 viewer complaints about the first episode of Strictly which aired on Saturday, September 25.

The complaints state that some viewers were unimpressed with “blasphemous language” used on the programme.

Others felt that a “same-sex dance partnership is inappropriate”, while some viewers were unhappy with “sexist comments re male contestant”.

However, the broadcaster did not specify what “blasphemous” and “sexist” comments they were referring to when contacted by Express.co.uk.
