Dianne: Stop sending Shirley death threats; Strictly dancer's plea to trolls.

Byline: JACK ANDREWS

BY JACK ANDREWS STRICTLY'S Dianne Buswell has pleaded with angry fans to stop tweeting "death threats" to Shirley Ballas.

Dance pro Dianne and Radio 1 DJ Dev Griffin were axed in a shock elimination last week.

After fans took their anger out on head judge Shirley, 59, Dianne said: "Guys this is terrible you can not be bullying like this. It's awful and really upsets me to hear this."

Dianne, 30, and Dev, 34, went out after the judges saved Aljaz Skorjanec, 29, and Emma Weymouth, 33, in a dance-off.

After the abusive posts, a fan begged Dianne "please sort your fans out", adding: "Sending vile abusive tweets and death threats to Shirley Ballas is totally out of order."

Hundreds of fans complained to the BBC One show, accusing the judges of underscoring.

It was announced yesterday that Luba Mushtuk, 29, and Dianne will join The Professionals nationwide tour next year. mirrornews@mirror.co.uk @DailyMirror
