Greg Rutherford's trousers confuse Strictly fans

Updated: 

Greg Rutherford may have been hoping to impress with his moody paso doble in tonight's Strictly Come Dancing, but viewers were rather distracted by his trousers.

The Olympic long jumper and his partner Natalie Lowe were second up in tonight's episode and fans thought that his costume was something to behold.

Wearing a pair of extremely high-waisted trousers with braces attached, Greg's strong look on the dancefloor did not pass without comment.

A few viewers wondered whether they might have tuned into the wrong Saturday night reality TV programme.

Another thought that Greg may have been shopping in the wrong department ahead of tonight's show.

Could he have in fact been going for a period drama look?

Whatever the thinking behind the trousers, they managed a feat we didn't think possible - they actually managed to make his legs look even longer.
