Pass on the goat? Shirley even went so far as to point out that viewers of the show – who have been complaining about the decision since Sunday evening – are responsible for Catherine's early exit
& # 39; I stick to my decision. Why was she there in the second half? You can't complain if it ends like this.
& # 39; It's about what they do there and then. And I know that I have absolutely made the right decision. We were able to have the same conversation every week. & # 39;
Hours before, Catherine did a thin veiled excavation to court by retweeting a tweet who stated that she was by far the better dancer & # 39; was after being in the bottom two with Mike and his partner Katya Jones.
Catherine's exit caused shockwaves among viewers at home with much branding from the show a solution and claimed that Mike avoided the heel because he works for the BBC.

Catherine, 36, who seemed to be giving her situation, retweeted: & # 39; Sorry but @Cath_Tyledesley didn't deserve to go to @bbcstrictly tonight … she was by far the better dance ..
& # 39; Hold your head up my dear Cath … you were a pleasure to watch from start to finish. Great love for you and @jojo_radebe. & # 39;
Before that, Shirley herself defended her decision to eliminate Catherine when she went back to the trolls and found tweets about how angry viewers should & # 39; grow up & # 39 ;.

Frustrated: the actress, 36, loved a tweet who said she was by far the better dancer & # 39; was after being in the bottom two with Mike Bushell and his partner Katya Jones
Angry: Catherine seemed to give her opinion on the situation and liked the tweet: & Sorry, but Catherine didn't deserve to go in @bbcstrictly tonight. She was by far the better dance & # 39;
A tweet she liked said: & # 39; Seeing the vitriol tonight on Shirley Ballas by #strakke viewers who – I suppose – are adults is really very nauseous.
& # 39; It's just a bit downy Saturday night, people. FFS, grow up! & # 39;
She also liked a fan's tweet that reads: & I'm sure you'll get a lot of annoying messages from people hiding behind a keyboard or a phone, you have a decision and you made it, people can't agree (including myself) but that's why you're in that chair. Don't let the haters touch you & # 39 ;.
Shock: Catherine's exit caused shock waves among viewers at home with much branding from the show and claimed that Mike & # 39; avoided the heel because he works for the BBC & # 39;
And co-judge Craig Revel Horwood also jumped in Shirley's defense, insisting that viewers are to blame for Catherine and John's exit.
He told fans: & # 39; If you worry about that, vote. You can only judge what you see in that one minute thirty, and in my opinion Mike had the cleaner dance.
& # 39; It's pretty simple and you know if it was another day or if Catherine did a rumba against his tango, she would have won it. But you know it's what happens on the day. & # 39;

Catherine and Johannes did not impress the judges when they re-performed their Cha Cha at the end of the Halloween Week of the show after scraping the bottom of the standings with a score of 24 out of a possible 40.
After the ax Mike appeared defiantly at BBC Breakfast to defend himself, already during rehearsals for his next dance.
He said: & # 39; It's an entertainment program, we all do our best, you don't really compete with anyone else, you compete with yourself to try to get better and better every week, even if it's just a few of new ones to step.
Taking position: After the ax Mike appeared defiantly at BBC Breakfast to defend himself, already during rehearsals for his next dance
& # 39; As a non-dancer, I can only put in the hours, do my best and get through it. You have to rise above the abuse on social media, that is one of the sad things on social media.
& # 39; The only thing you can do is do your best, accept the jury's decision and continue. Johannes and Catherine are nice people, I didn't want to see them go, but someone has to go.
& # 39; It's just like football – you have to accept the referee's decision. (The jury members) are the best jury members in the world, they know what they are talking about. If they had sent me home, that would have been the best decision, I cannot get involved. & # 39;
