How does the Strictly Come Dancing voting system work?
Strictly Come Dancing results are calculated through a mix of audience vote and panel scores.
The four judges give points out of 10, with a maximum of 40. This is then placed on a leaderboard.
The BBC site claims: "These ranks are converted into points, with the highest scoring couple ranked first receiving a number of points equal to the number of couples."
A similar point system is used for the public vote – via online and phone services – which is then added to the points from the judges.
In the result of any tie in score – Head Judge Shirley Ballas – decides who to save from participating in the dance-off.
She also has the ultimate say in which of the bottom two couples stays, if the judges don't reach a unanimous decision.
The scores from the judges on the first show and the public vote will be combined 50-50 and announced in the results show.
Then the two couples with the lowest number of points from a combination of judges’ scores and the results of the vote will go into a dance-off.
After they both perform their dance again, the judges will decide which couple will stay in the competition.
In the case of a tie in the judges’ decision, Head Judge Shirley Ballas, has the all-important final casting vote and gets to send the unlucky couple home.
