Strictly fans get chance to score dances with paddle emojis


Twitter is giving Strictly Come Dancing fans the chance to embrace their inner judge even more, by launching a range of Strictly emojis.

The new emojis are scoring paddles, modelled off those used by the judges during the shows.

Fans can score their favourite act on Twitter by using #strictly, with the number you want to score (eg: #strictly7) and the emoji will appear. 

Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood says: "I love the idea that people at home will be tweeting their own scores with these very funky mini scoring paddles."

"I am sure that most people who tweet will be agreeing with my scores anyway though as I rarely get these things wrong darlings!"

The emoji's are not an official voting mechanism, but will give fans the chance to have some more scoring fun. 

Strictly Come Dancing airs on BBC One on Friday September 25 at 9pm.
