Strictly speaking fans had the same complaint after Anton Du Beke made a huge mistake tonight.
The professional dancer joined the judging panel for this year’s series of BBC dancing shows full-time as a successful guest last year.
While Anton has been well received as a judge by the audience and his fellow pros, he made a huge mistake while watching Ugo Moni and Oti Mabuse’s Rumba tonight.
As the couple heard the judge’s response, it was Anton’s turn, and he told them: “There was an element to it ‘I’ll do it better this way or I’ll be told at rehearsal next Monday, so there’s a little bit of fear going on. .
“But, I like the way you danced, er, ot. You caught him and you danced with him.”
However, Anton pronounces Oti’s name as ‘Oti’, which immediately caught the attention of the audience at home.
One Strictly wrote on Twitter: “How many years has Anton worked with OT? Outrageous that he should have gotten his name wrong.”
Another addition: “Every time I start liking Anton, he mispronounces samba and, even worse, something like OT.”
A third tweeted: “Anton is calling OT “OTTE” when literally no one ever pronounced it like ever my villainous origin story.”
Meanwhile a fourth viewer raged: “Who’s the f*** otty? Her name is OTI, Anton. OH – TEE!! It’s hard not to think she’s only been on the show 7 years.”
