Strictly Come Dancing 2019: Why isn’t there a public vote this week?

BBC series Strictly Come Dancing is back and the contestants blew away the judges particularly Kelvin Fletcher who was the dark horse after he was called in at the last minute. Kelvin stepped in at the eleventh hour after Jamie Laing had to pull out when he injured his foot during the launch show. He had to do an intense two weeks of training with Oti after he was partnered up with Oti. 

Kelvin and Oti Mabuse showed off his skills on the dance floor after he got a score of 32, the highest score in an opening show in five years.

After blowing away from the judges, Kelvin and Oti spoke to host Claudia Winkleman about how he found his first dance.

Claudia reminded viewers at home that they couldn’t vote, saying that there wouldn’t be one this week.

The reason there’s no vote this week is that Strictly Come Dancing doesn’t have one in Week One.

Perhaps part of the reason is to give everyone a chance if they get the first-week jitters. 

However, the first public vote will be taking place on Saturday, September 28 after all the couples have performed. 

The results will be announced the next evening (Sunday, September 29) during the elimination show when one person will be going home. 

There will also be the dance-off between the bottom two couples.

Among the contenders to be going home are James Cracknell, Mike Bushell and David James.

While Karim Zeroual is one of the favourites to win the show, according to the bookies.

But everything could change once all the couples have performed this week.

This evening saw some surprises after Michelle Visage and DJ Dev Griffin got some high scores with 30 each.

Saffron Barker also impressed with her Tango that she performed with her partner AJ Pritchard.

Commenting after the performance, head judge Shirley Ballas said: “Well, I appreciate we could actually see your foot moving and your body going over it, it was staccato.

“Great choreography,” the head judge said to AJ. “I mean really quite difficult, but you kept in with the time.

“Little bit more work on the frame and core but that will come.”

New judge Motsi Mabuse added: “Girl, you have fire! I loved that! I absolutely loved that, i enjoyed every second, you were in there, you were alive, you gave it all. That was the best dance I’ve seen so far.”

Strictly Come Dancing airs next Saturday on BBC One at 6.40pm
