Strictly viewers outraged as show kicks off 18th series to Everybody's Free song – despite enforced tier covid lockdowns

STRICTLY Come Dancing viewers were left outraged tonight after the show chose to play Everybody's Free for its opening number – despite the enforced tier lockdowns amid the coronavirus pandemic.

There have been protests on the street today after Prime Minister Boris Johnson brought in tough measures across the country in a bid to avoid a second peak.

One viewer remarked: "Tonight’s #Strictly began with a pro routine to ‘Everybody’s Free’. You been watching the news this year, pal?"

Someone else said: "I’m sure it’s supposed to be uplifting (& music was probably cleared yonks ago) but helluva time to be leading with “Everybody’s free…”

Another said: "Everybody’s free. Is this irony?"

One added: "Everybody's free is a bit of an ironic song considering this is the least free we've been in forever!"

Revellers last night clashed with cops before the new rules came into effect as they packed out streets in London.

Other areas moving into Tier 2 include Essex, Elmbridge, Barrow-in-Furness, York, North East Derbyshire, Erewash and Chesterfield.

Lancashire yesterday joined Liverpool on the toughest lockdown measures in Tier 3.

Under the new rules, people are banned from mixing with other households, indoors or outdoors.
