Claudia Fragapane wins over Strictly viewers in the semi-final

Updated: 

She may seem like the underdog next to the dazzle of her fellow Strictly contestants, but it seems like Claudia Fragapane is the people's favourite to win.

The Olympic gymnast and her partner AJ Pritchard performed a beautiful Rumba first up tonight, which many complained was undermarked at just 35 points.

But despite admitting to being disappointed at the judges' comments, Claudia came back out fighting for her second routine - don't forget, this girl competes for a living.

Viewers were pretty sure her Quickstep should have got top marks.

She really stuck to the name of the dance and made it as quick as possible.

People desperately want to see her in the final, even if just to get a look at what she could do with a showdance.

Poor Claudia is the bookies' favourite to go this week - let's see if her fans manage to save her.
