Viewers on Reddit shared their confusion after the latest episode. One asked: "Genuine question – there has been a lot of controversy about GB news in the past few weeks (due to some horrific things said by some people on the channel), and there has been a lot of negativity directed to the channel and it’ presenters for supporting the channel and its views.

"Why don’t they make reference on Strictly to the fact that Angela R is a presenter there? Just to give her a better image, or the BBC not wanting to advertise that channel?"

And lots of fans admitted they'd had no idea she presented on the channel. One said: "Didn't know she's on gb news. That actually does change a lot about how I feel about her."

Another revealed their disappointment as they added: "Is she? I didn’t know that. That is quite off putting to me."

But others rushed to defend Angela. One said: "Look I just don’t think we should expect that everyone who does a show needs to align with our views and values. That just isn’t real life."

Another defended Strictly, claiming that the BBC weren't choosing to single out GB News. They wrote: "To be fair, they also never mention that bbc show she presents with her two friends, rip off Britain."
