Head 'Strictly Come Dancing' judge Len Goodman thinks Daisy Lowe is being "overlooked" by viewers, which is subsequently landing her in the bottom two every week
Len Goodman thinks Daisy Lowe keeps getting "overlooked" on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 72-year-old head judge is baffled as to why the brunette model - the daughter of Gavin Rossdale and Pearl Lowe - isn't getting the votes from the public week-in week-out but thinks, because she ranks quite high on the leaderboard, fans aren't phoning in for her because they assume she's already safe from the boot.
Speaking on Chris Evans' BBC Radio 2 'Breakfast Show' on Monday (31.10.16), he said when asked why the 27-year-old star keeps ending up in the bottom two: "I can only imagine - because she's a terrific dancer, she's got a lovely personality and she's such a charming, lovely person. The only thing I can think of is that people, when they vote, may see Daisy - she's there, she's in fourth place, she's in a good position, they may think 'well, she's safe.' And then they vote for somebody, you know, down the line who they hope will come back and poor Daisy gets overlooked. That's the only thing I can imagine because it's nothing to do with her dancing."
Daisy - who has found herself at the bottom of the leader two weeks in a row - was forced to dance against Anastacia in Sunday (30.10.16) night's results show, despite impressing the audience with her Paso Doble in the main show on Saturday (29.10.16), but was sent through to the next round when judges Len, Craig Revel Horwood, Bruno Tonioli and Darcey Bussell chose to send home the 'I'm Outta Love' hitmaker.
As she struggled to hold back the tears, the 48-year-old singer thanked the BBC One show for helping her find her "female" again following her highly-publicised double mastectomy last year.
She said: "I've really enjoyed being here. This was a place for me to get to know my female and this place allowed me to do that; the hair, the make-up, the production, the judges gave me great comments."
