STRICTLY Come Dancing viewers are all saying the same thing after spotting a blunder by Shirley Ballas.
The head judge appeared to space out and forget where she was during the opening of tonight’s show.
As all the judges danced their way to their seats, Shirley narrowly missed falling – and it threw her off kilter.
“It’s a big night tonight isn’t it Shirley?” said Tess Daly as she opened up the show.
“It’s the first public vote of 2022.”
But Shirley didn’t answer, instead sat shuffling her cards awkwardly in near silence.
The excruciating moment ended with Shirley looking shocked and saying: “Well hello.”
She quickly followed it with: “I just made my seat by the skin of my teeth so anyway…”
As the other judges burst into laughter at the awkward moment, Shirley said: “I just want to say to all the people who are at home who are experts – please please vote.
“I don’t want to send anyone home. Please do it for us.”
Viewers were left concerned for Shirley but all said the same thing.
One wrote: “Did Shirley forget she was on the telly? #Strictly”
A second said: “Shirley not having a clue what is going on is truly iconic #strictly”
