Strictly Come Dancing viewers were horrified as Michelle Visage and Giovanni Pernice landed in the bottom two.
Despite doing well in the Saturday live show, the RuPaul’s Drag Race star and her pro partner found themselves dancing for their place in the competition.
The first announced in the Sunday show to be in the bottom two, Tess announcing Michelle and Giovanni’s position sent shockwaves and an audible gasp around the audience.
As the cameras cut to other couples in the competition, it was evident that everyone was shocked.
On finding out, judge Motsi Mabuse struggled to speak, and told the pair: ‘I’m sorry I’m just really surprised right now. Bring it on, I know you can.
‘Honestly I’m at a loss for words. I’m really surprised.’
While Michelle took it on the chin and vowed to come back fighting, viewers at home were baffled as to how she landed in the bottom in the first place.
As if Brexit wasn’t proof enough that the UK can’t be trusted with a vote, Michelle Visage ended up in the bottom 2 on #Strictly

Michelle and Giovanni re-performed their American Smooth to I Just Wanna Make Love To You, going up against Mike Bushell and Katya Jones.
Mike and Katya, who performed a Paso Doble, were in the bottom for the fourth time in a row.
Unfortunately for them, it was fourth time unlucky and they were sent packing unanimously by the judges.
‘I have had the most amazing nine or 10 weeks since we started training,’ Mike said upon his exit. ‘I have lost a stone and a half. I’m a guy in his 50s, I’m mentally sharper, I feel able to deal with pressured situations – thanks to the dance-offs!
‘It has changed me completely and honestly, I’m not going to stop dancing.’
The seven remaining couples will now be heading to the iconic Blackpool Dance Hall next week.
Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday at 6.40pm on BBC One.
