Strictly Come Dancing fans have picked up on a ‘patronising’ habit by host Tess Daly.
The long-term presenter of the BBC One dance series appeared alongside her co-host Claudia Winkleman on Saturday night’s episode.
Following the dances, Tess spoke to the celebrities and their dance partners but drew wrath from fans, who accused the 52-year-old star of being “patronising” towards the contestants.
One disgruntled viewer wrote: “Tess is patronising to a very high level. She treats most celebs like they are as thick as a whale sandwich.”
Another commented: #StrictlyComeDancing Please can someone give Tess a new script? I’m fed up having to mute her all the time.”
A third replied: “OMG, she said it ‘awww, you’re little face’. No, no, no Tess. Please stop, it’s so patronising.”
