Strictly Come Dancing has been hit by a tough row in the final week when the die-hard fans of Joe Sugg revealed a way they can vote for him to win, even if they do not live in the country reports The Mirror.

The general conditions of the BBC mean that only British viewers (and those on the Channel Islands and Isle of Man) are eligible to vote for the Strictly finalists, from a fixed line, their mobile phone or via the BBC site.

But an Instagram fan account dedicated to the YouTuber reportedly revealed a loophole that allowed fans to vote on the star, even if they live abroad.

The account, which has more than 2000 followers, would have encouraged fans abroad to "mislead" the BBC website & # 39; to believe they are in the UK, so they can vote for Joe and dance partner Dianne Buswell.

In a four-step tutorial, shared on the social media site, the account would have posted: & # 39; How to vote if you are not in the UK & # 39 ;.

This would mean that if someone is successful, someone who watches outside of the UK could vote for the Strictly finalists if they have registered as a BBC user.

The fan account is then said to have encouraged other followers to share the loophole and then allegedly screened accounts that had done so, and thanked them.

There is no suggestion that Joe or Dianne were aware of this message.

Joe has a huge global fan base, with 8.2 million YouTube subscribers, 5.49 million Twitter followers and 5.7 Instagram followers.

The BBC's general conditions are as follows: "The BBC reserves the right to disqualify votes if there are reasonable grounds to suspect that fraudulent voting has been made or if there is a deliberate attempt to manipulate the result.

& # 39; The BBC can only guarantee that the votes will be individually entered directly via the phone numbers promoted on the show and counted via the site http://www.bbc.co.uk/strictly. & # 39;

The Strictly rules state: & # 39; Votes are only open to individuals as consumers from the UK, and not to agencies, companies and / or companies.

Voting on the website is free, with fixed calls to the number that is charged on the screen with 15p.

Mobile calls to the same number are higher, although votes via mobile can be placed on the seven-digit number for less

The message has since been removed by the fan account.

MailOnline contacted representatives for Joe and Strictly Come Dancing for comments.

The semifinal of the show saw Ashley Roberts and Pasha Kovalev joint-top with Faye Tozer and Giovanni Pernice with 76 points each.

Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton were in second place with 75 points.

Joe and Dianne were third on the leaderboard with 59 points.

BBC Representatives told the website @ & # 39; We regularly update our technology to prevent us from accessing the BBC website from outside the UK that violates our voting provisions and conditions.

& # 39; Our voting platforms are robust and we have rigorous procedures and independent verification. Online voting requires a BBC registration and is available free of charge to users throughout the UK without VPN. & # 39;

Stacey and Kevin are currently being tipped as favorites to win the series ahead of Saturday's final, as they re-perform the Foxtrot as their Judges Choice along with their mysterious showdance.

Joe was a surprise hit for many viewers who previously stated that he did not qualify as a celebrity, because he was amazed by his dance skills throughout the series.

But he and Dianne had also raised rumors that they were dating from the screen and they did not deny the rumors while appearing on It Takes Two.

Strictly Come Dancing: The Final airs Saturday, December 15 at 6:30 PM on BBC One.

On the way to the final: Joe and Dianne were third on the standings with 59 points
