Another wrote: “Nine !? Was Gordon Ramsay sitting there rattling his chef’s knives? #Strict.”

A third added: “The bizarre vote on #Strictly Tilly Ramsay was okay at best. The judges obviously know where their bread is best buttered … “

A fourth tweeted, “Gordon Ramsey helped raise Tilly’s score tonight, haha.”
