Strictly Come Dancing row: Helen Skelton claims dancers UPSET that Hamza Yassin won show
Strictly Come Dancing star Helen Skelton says every professional on the show was desperate for her partner Gorka Marquez to win
Presenter Helen Skelton has said that the dancers on the BBC One show were rooting for Gorka Marquez to win after making it the final three times.
The professionals were said to be backing Marquez but the public crowned wildlife cameraman Hamza Yassin as the winner.
The Countryfile star revealed on her Radio 5 show alongside Marquez that her pro partner was supported by everyone to take home the Glitterball trophy.
She said: "Every pro on the show was desperate for him to win and that says everything about him. He's my hero of the week.
"Obviously we're delighted for Hamza because he put in some amazing dances through the season.
"But Gorka and I, our reaction, you could tell how gutted we were."
Marquez added: "I wasn't fuming but I wanted Helen to finish the season with the cherry on top,” after fans speculated he was "furious" with the result.
“I was happy for Hamza and Jowita, they've been amazing.
Marquez, 32 and Skelton, 39 made the final alongside Fleur East and Molly Rainford.
The pair had topped the leaderboard on several occasions during their time on the show as the former Blue Peter host previously said she “found her confidence on the dancefloor”.
Some Strictly fans are worried that Marquez might quit the show after making it to the final three times and not being crowned winner
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts after watching other celebrities rush to congratulate the winner Yassin while Marquez looked upset.
One viewer said: “I’m calling it now. Gorka is going to quit Strictly before next year."
Another added: "Gorka will quit," as a third said: "Gorka looks like he’s about to whack someone on Strictly.
