Some viewers felt that Hamza won a popularity contest rather than a dance competition and that others were more deserving
‘I’m only catching up now. But while Hamza may have natural rhythm he wasn’t the better dancer. I would have gone for Helen but Fleur magnificent too. But lads Gorka,’ one said.
‘Have to realise that in the final it is no longer a dance comp but a personality contest. Minds made up. Hamza, lovely guy but on the night clearly the worst dancer. That said consideration has to be made for age, athletic condition and previous experience.’ another said.
‘It was up to the public… more voted for Hamza than Helen… it happens… your reaction is excessive but if you mean it then I’m sure the producers of #StrictlyComeDancing will be gutted,’ one said.
