This weekend, the remaining Strictly Come Dancing contestants took to the dancefloor to perform a very special routine. James Bye wowed the judges with his dance to the theme tune of EastEnders, while Helen Skelton stunned with her Blue Peter-inspired performance. The theme songs were carefully selected to mark 100 years of the BBC.

Meanwhile, Ellie Simmonds performed to The Apprentice theme song, while Tony Adams danced to Line of Duty.

However, some viewers were left baffled by the show’s theme, and many took to social media to share their thoughts.

Some felt the celebrities dancing to theme tunes of programmes just “didn’t work”.

Annie fumed: “The BBC been ripping off licence payers for 100 years #strictly.”

Jason penned: “Have to say I’m already sick of the BBC 100 theming #Strictly.”

While Karen added: “Oh gawd. #Strictly is already making me squirm.” (sic)

“Sorry this BBC theme tune thing isn’t going to work #strictly,” Tom commented.

Hayley went on to comment: “It’s kinda boring tonight, I get they wanted to honour 100 years of the BBC songs but these songs are boring #strictly.”

Victoria tweeted: “So far, this is *the* worst episode of #strictly.” (sic)

Although, not all viewers were unhappy with the theme choices, as Dr Sophie Duncan praised: “Okay, I am completely in awe of the absolute madness that is this opening sequence. BBC #Strictly.”

Leanne continued: “Wow. They’ve gone to great lengths to create this.”

Steph added: “#Strictly tribute to 100 years of the BBC was great. Happy birthday to the Beebs.”

Strictly Come Dancing returns on Sunday at 6.45pm on BBC One.
