Strictly Come Dancing’s remaining contestants Helen Skelton, Hamza Yassin, Molly Rainford and Fleur East performed in the highly anticipated grand final.
The Strictly Come Dancing 2022 finally arrived and one of the remaining four celebrities would be crowned the champion and lift the Glitterball Trophy. Before taking to the stage, presenters Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman introduced the judges, but viewers were left distracted by Claudia’s tribute to music legend Elvis Presley.
Strutting out onto the dance floor, Claudia donned a white pantsuit accompanied with a long flowing cape, bejewelled in the style of Elvis Presley.
Fans were quick to take to their Twitter accounts to comment on the unusual piece of clothing, with many being distracted by it.
John Ingram commented: “So we have Bat Woman and Tron woman Tess & Claudia #StrictlyComeDancing… baffled.”
@davejthorp added: “Claudia wearing a traitors cloak there.”
Adam Grant was baffled and tweeted: “WTF why Claudia were a wonder women cape for the final.”
@Itstombrain teased: “Claudia looking like she’s just come back from a Mission with the Justice league and didn’t get a chance to get changed.”
@ShanghaiHannah said: “I’m choosing to believe Claudia’s cape is nod to #TheTraitors.”
However, not everyone had a bad word to say about the outfit, as @fakoriginal said: “Solid outfits from Tess and Claud.” (sic)
