    Strictly Come Dancing fans are fuming as the eighth celebrity to leave this year's series has been leaked online ahead of Sunday night's results show.

    The BBC films the dreaded dance-off straight after Saturday night's live show but keeps the results under wraps for 24 hours. The identity of the axed pair has been leaked online since 2012, much to the dismay of the Strictly team and the judges.

    And this week was no different as the celebrity leaving the competition in week seven was exposed online. But Daily Star have decided not to share.

    Fans took to social media to express frustration with the outcome, with one saying: "Wrong person has gone." Another commented: "Waiting for the plot twist…." A third pleaded: "Can someone please tell me this isn't true."

    Strictly's "super leaker" David Thorp defended his spoilers in a chat with the Mirror last year, calling the BBC "silly" for thinking they can avoid spoilers in today's digital age. He also shared that some fans find the Sunday results show "more bearable" when they already know the outcome.

    "I mean, I say this on my website, we live in an age where it's possible to transmit information around the world pretty much in the blink of an eye with the internet," David said after Strictly judge Anton Du Beke criticised the leaks.

    "So I just find it a little bit silly of them to pre-record the results show of what is their main reality TV show and broadcast it a whole day later and expect people not to find out in this online world we live in." David, from Preston, Lancashire, also responded to Anton's comments about the "Strictly mole", after the judge claimed on Loose Women that spoilers ruin the show for viewers.

    David disagreed with Anton's claims that his website is ruining the Strictly experience for viewers, explaining last year: "I mean, as far as the people who are accessing it go through me, they are actively seeking it out. They want to know.

    "So I'm not spoiling it for people who don't want to know and I do my very best not to – I try limit it to those who want to find out. People Google the results and hit my website through searching." He added: "If there wasn't a demand for the information to be out there, my site wouldn't get as many hits as it does."
