BBC dancing show in race row


by David Allen

The BBC have found themselves unwittingly in the middle of a race row.

This follows the result of the public vote on the hugely successful TV series “Strictly Come Dancing” where both the singer Heather Small and actor Don Warrington were both selected to perform the dance off, after the public vote.

After the judges had chosen Heather Small, the ex Rising Damp star Done Warrington was kicked off the show.

This then prompted many comments on the BBC website, while former Olympian John Regis implied that the public vote was due to other factors.

The problem started when the judges rated both contenders higher than they rated some of the others involved in the competition, but could this be the whole point of the competition that the public do not always agree with what the judges say.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission have said that the comments are interesting and that they would be investigating the claims.
