Something to say? Strictly’s Gorka Marquez hinted that HE should have replaced injured Neil Jones on the show and NOT Kevin Clifton after a last minute line-up change

At the beginning of the show, host Tess Daly announced that Neil would be missing the show after suffering an injury earlier in the day, with Kevin stepping into his shoes.

But Gorka didn’t appear to agree with the decision as he later took to Twitter to retweet the s comments which suggested that he should’ve been asked to step in.

Gorka, alongside other pro Graziano Di Prima, wasn’t assigned a celebrity partner this year, and instead has just been taking part in group dances.

Though he didn’t say so directly himself, the Spanish hunk heavily suggested through his Tweet that he didn’t believe that last year winner Kevin was the man for the job.

Change of plan: Fellow professional dancer Kevin Clifton stepped in at the last minute to take his place, dancing with celebrity Alex Scott

The star retidents several fan remarks, with one reading: ‘For real @ gorkamarquez1 would of been PERFECT to dance with Alex tonight since Neil couldn’t due to injury !!! Safe to say Gorka deserves a lot of appreciation! ‘

While another said:’ Really missing @ gorkamarquez1 having a partner on this years #Strictly also surely if someone is injured he should be the stand in? Not someone who has already had a partner and been voted out? Xxx. ‘

‘ Why have extra pros and not use them. Ermmmm hello @ gorkamarquez1 deserved it not Kevin who has already had a partner this year, ‘remarked a third fan.

With another comment stating.So we’re all in agreement that it should be @ gorkamarquez1 dancing tonight, right? Like the whole point is that him & @GrazianoDiPrima are there to step in as replacements if one of the other male pros get injured! #Strictly. ‘

MailOnline have contacted representative of Gorka for comment.

Given the circumstances of their performance, Alex and Kevin were the last pair to take to the stage, as they danced a Couples Choice Street Dance to the iconic Ghostbusters Theme Song.

As the dance came to an end, Kevin proudly spoke out in support of Alex for handling the last-minute change so well.

He said to the audience and the judges: ‘It’s difficult enough having a routine in four days when you’ve never danced a step before, but then teaching a professional how to do it in about 45 minutes. People can see I got a few things wrong in that but Alex kept the whole thing going. ‘

Alex’s solid performance also earned a positive reception from the judging panel, who agreed that it was her best dance yet.

Motsi gushed: ‘Alex I have to give it to you! I have to say I just watched you there, shouting at Kevin, changing a partner getting it on performing, really honestly that was a great performance for you. Your skills are just double what we’ve had since the beginning. ‘

Bruno added:’ I’ve never had so much fun with ghosts ever, talk about delivering under pressure this was your best dance ever. ‘

Neil also tweeted: ‘I’m gutted tonight I won’t be able to dance because I was injured earlier today but I know @AlexScott ill smash it tonight, she’s worked hard all week and she’s in safe hands with @kevinclifton #strictly #teamred. ‘

Suffering: Neil (pictured in the VT filmed before he suffered the injury) pulled out just hours ahead of the live show, but still took to Twitter to praise Alex’s performance
