Mike Bushell and his wife Emily have hit back on trolls on Twitter who slammed the BBC Breakfast presenter after being rescued at Strictly Come Dancing at the weekend, with Catherine Tyldesley sent home.

The news anchor, 53, was told to take off & # 39; & # 39; by cruel viewers of the ballroom show, while others consider it & # 39; a solution & # 39; given that Mike is a BBC employee.

But he and Emily did not stand for it, instead opted to address the issue.

& # 39; Wow the abuse! Painful. We are more than happy that Catherine and Johannes have left, but Mike danced well and deserves his place, & tweet Emily. & # 39; As a viewer, I get an opinion from the start, but this level of abuse is shocking. He is just a participant and does everything! & # 39;

A viewer tweeted kindly: & # 39; @ShirleyBallas is a world-famous judge and former world champion. I chose to accept her decision about armchair viewers. @mikebreakfast impressed me and I LOVE his attitude! & # 39;

To which Mike replied: & # 39; Thank you Caroline. I totally agree with that. I always accept the jury's decision and advice or when I play the referee. The judges on @bbcstrictly are the best in the world! & # 39;

The barrage of abuse that the BBC Breakfast host endured, including tweets such as: & # 39; That strict decision was the biggest solution ever, just because Mike is a BBC employee. & # 39;

Another posted: & # 39; F ** k this # Strong result! if Shirley and Craig thought Mike was pounding over the floor, better than Catherine, they were misled! Shirley has hated Catherine from the start and had it in store for her. Shirley has to test her head! IT'S A FIX – Mike can get off and Katya too! & # 39;

Someone else was angry: & # 39; Was the judge told to keep the BBC personality inside? Catherine has been good every week, certainly better than Mike and had more potential. In my opinion a bad and unfair decision! & # 39;

& # 39; What a solution !! MIKE BUSHELL?! What a load of ***! You've ruined this year's competition for thousands of people, including me and my mother! & # 39;

& # 39; Incredible flat foot cardboard cutout Mike Bushell survives Strictly Come Dancing dance against Catherine Tyldesly. Can only assume that it is a makeover for BBC to protect their sports presenter, & someone else wrote, as someone else agreed: & # 39; Is this Strictly Come Dancing or the Mike Bushell Show? Clearly working for the BBC gives you a head start! & # 39;

& # 39; I mean, ok Mike seems like a nice guy, but get rid of it! & # 39; posted someone else.

Another wrote: & # 39; F ** k off, this is a piece, Mike Bushell works for the BBC, this is an absolute solution! & # 39;

Written again: & I told you it was a shock like what Mike actually chooses to stay, who works handy for the (BBC) over Catherine, who is clearly the better dancer, there is something about the hand if you ask me! & # 39;

& # 39; I know it's about dance in dance, but … WHAT THE ACTUAL F ** K?! Mike has been in the bottom two for weeks and is comedy celeb this year. He should no longer be IMO on the show. He should have left, not Cath. I have been talking about this since this morning, someone else ranted.
