STRICTLY judge Anton Du Beke has warned fans to expect shock dance-offs EVERY week.
The 56-year-old says top-scoring celebs are at risk of an early exit because of the “fifth judge’s votes”.
He says this year, more than any, has proved no one is safe.
Talking Kym Marsh and Fleur East ending up in the bottom two in recent weeks, Anton said on It Takes Two tonights: “I think it’s going to be the same moving forward.
“I gave Kym a nine for her samba and then she was in the dance-off.
“The week before was Fleur, who was tremendous, but ended up in the dance-off.
“I just think that’s going to be the norm this year.
“That’s the best thing about Strictly Come Dancing. The show doesn’t work without the audience.”
Anton turned to the camera and said down the lens: “I love you all and I want you to keep voting.

“That’s the best part of the show. It makes what it is. It makes it really interesting to have a fifth judge. So vote whatever you want favourite for the best, whatever.”
Anton continued: “It’s perfect because then we get this mixed up leaderboard, which makes it really interesting.
“That way you get the Anne Widdecombes and Judy Murrays who then get a chance to stay in and it makes it fun and interesting.
“From this point on we’re going to have that kind of leaderboard every week.”
The Sun revealed this week the BBC has refused to change the filming of Strictly Come Dancing to try to foil spoilers revealing which star is given the boot.
Bosses claim it would be too costly to produce live shows on the Saturday and Sunday nights to frustrate killjoy David Thorp who reveals the result before the show airs.
Eu obviamente pensei sobre isso, mas eu tinha um trabalho a fazer.”
He tweets the ousted dancer’s identity to his 50,000 followers on the Strictly Spoilers website on the Saturday night.
Audience members are sworn to secrecy and it is unclear how the information reaches Mr Thorp.
