Strictly Come Dancing host Claudia Winkleman announced the votes were open after each of the three finalists had performed their judges’ choice routine. However, despite the voting opening early, fans struggled to cast a vote for their favourite dancer and took to Twitter to complain.
Just moments after voting was open, there was backlash over the online vote.
“Oh brilliant vote isn't working on line again #StrictlyFinal,” one fan shared.
Another added: “So @bbcstrictly website has decided not to work so i cannot vote how is it for everyone else? #StrictlyFinal.”
A third continued: “Haven't voted yet get this!!! @bbcstrictly at it agsin... Anything to get bbc golden boy Karim to vote.”

“VOTING SCANDAL! Strictly online is showing I've reached my maximum votes but I haven't voted #Strictly #StrictlyFinal #KarimtoWin,” someone else wrote.
A fifth tweeted: “Is anyone else having trouble voting online ??? #StrictlyFinal.”
Express.co.uk check the online vote and was met with a message which said we’d already voted despite not being given the chance to.
The message read: “Thank you for voting. The winner will be revealed at the end of tonight's live show so keep watching!
