Strictly Come Dancing fans beg producers to 'cancel elimination' after Nigel ... trends now

Strictly Come Dancing fans have begged producers to 'cancel this weekend's elimination' as Nigel Harman was forced to quit just hours before live show. 

The actor, 50, was gearing up to perform a Charleston to Step in Time from Mary Poppins with his professional partner Katya Jones for the quarter finals. 

However, he has had to pull out of the BBC dance contest on medical grounds after sustaining an injury, which is said to have left him 'really disappointed'. 

His exit leaves just Ellie Leach, Bobby Brazier, Layton Williams and Annabel Croft still left in the contest battling it out in a bid to win the iconic glitterball trophy.

Fans of the series have questioned if Sunday's planned elimination will still go ahead while some called for Angela Scanlon to return following her departure last week.

After the BBC announced the news on social media, fans were quick to take to the comments section to share their dismay at the popular star's exit.

Others also questioned whether there will still be a public vote after Nigel's exit or if the date of the final, set for December 16, will change. MailOnline understands that the logistic details of any changes will be shared in Saturday night's episode.

One fan wrote: 'Absolutely gutted for him. He was heading to the final for sure. Speedy recovery Nigel.'

Another said: 'I’m so upset for him I liked him,' a third commented: 'OMG I’m so gutted he was my favourite dancer.'

A fourth penned: 'Thats such a shame I'm gutted for Katya too as he's been her best contestant ages,' and a fifth said: 'That’s very sad after all his hard work.' 

While another questioned: 'Surely they need to stop an elimination next week then. 2 in a final doesn't work.'

One added: 'Please cancel tonight's elimination, having a two person final is horrendously boring and anti-climactic.'

Other fans called for Strictly to bring back Angela Scanlon and her dance partner Carlos Gu because of Nigel's unexpected exit.

During last Sunday's dance off, Angela narrowly missed out on a place in the quarters after failing to win over the judges with her cha-cha-cha to Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive, with Layton Williams and pro Nikita Kuzmin being saved.

Calling for her to be brought back, one fan said: 'Can you bring back @angelascanlon PLEASE,' and a second agreed, penning: 'Bring back @angelascanlon.'

Another wrote: 'Poor poor Nigel. He was so fabulous! But I saw someone say bring back Angela Scanlon! Great idea!'

'Can Angela Scanlon learn a dance in 3 and a half hours please? come back queen!' someone else wrote. 

The Sun have claimed Nigel's withdrawal means there won't be an elimination this week, instead the remaining celebs - Ellie Leach, Annabel Croft, Layton Williams and Bobby Brazier - will all make it through to next round. 

MailOnline has contacted BBC representatives for comment.
