Strictly slapped with complaints over Madness and fans say 'can't they just'
BBC Strictly Come Dancing has been slapped with complaints over Madness performance as fans say "could they not?" BBC viewers demanded Madness play a song they "know" after their performance on the results show at Blackpool on Strictly Come Dancing on Sunday night.
Web user East of Stratford said: "Madness dressed as burglars. And why not?" Bendy said: "Oh now it's Madness doing their new song. Can't they just do an old song we all know!" Secret said: "Errrrrm could they not have done Baggy Trousers or something a bit more uplifting"
Gardener said: "Angela and Carlos will be dancing to I Will Survive next week. In other news here's Madness to sing a song that sounds exactly like every Madness song. Oh, and six pros dance latin. Good musical interlude!" Reg said: "When did Madness get so old? I rather like the tune though."

"I love Madness, takes me back. But for Blackpool, I want the Ballroom experience. Find me a crooner!" Mrs O said. During the show, which kicked off from 7.20pm, Madness performed their song C'est La Vie and a dance from Nadiya Bychkova, Graziano Di Prima, Jowita Przystal, Gorka Marquez, Michelle Tsiakkas and Neil Jones.
Tim fumed: "Madness yay! Oh Wait. OMG what a crap song, of their entire brilliant stuff, they did this? Oh dear. #Strictly #StrictlyComeDancing #SCD #StrictlyComeDancing." Jerry said: "Very apt having just seen Madness on Strictly. Our hair may be grey and our bones may ache but the music will live on forever."
"Thought they would have least have put Neil into a parka with braces for the pro dance accompaniment to Madness on #Strictly #SCD," laughed Wivenhoe. Gordon said: "@MadnessNews Just seen you on Strictly performing your new single. Sorry guys, but although we love Madness, it got got voted as a "Miss" from the Juke Box Jury team "Our House" - pun intended!"
The remaining six couples will take to the dancefloor next when Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday November 25 at 7.30pm, with the results show on Sunday at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
