Even judge Craig Revel Horwood spoke out about the controversial decisions, insisting it is the viewers’ fault, telling Heart Breakfast at the time: “We have to judge the dance off only, not what happened previously or what is to become, and you can only judge what you see in that one minute thirty and in my opinion Mike had the cleaner dance.”
Despite the abuse, Mike tried to stay positive as he spoke to BBC Breakfast: “As a non-dancer all I can do is put the hours in, do my best and get through it. You have to rise above the abuse on social media, that’s one of the sad things about social media.
“All you can do is do your best, accept the judges’ decision and move on.”
He was seventh to be eliminated from the show and admitted he was ‘relieved” to be out.
He’ll be glad to be back in his comfort zone after today!
BBC Breakfast airs weekdays at 6am on BBC One.
