In response, one Strictly fan told Caroline: "This isn't the Olympics, it’s an entertainment show where people vote based on what they like. Someone had to go. Adam's been fantastic and achieved so much to get this far. You're doing him a great disservice by calling it a farce and knocking the remaining contestants #bekind."

She took issue with the show's 'inconsistent judging'

Caroline replied: "Everyone is entitled to an opinion, I have watched this show for the first time and I have seen with my own eyes that the judging is not consistent or fair, not just with Adam either! And just so you know I am a kind person."
