Strictly Come Dancing fans were distracted as singer Griff belted out her new single on the BBC dance show

Griff, whose real name is Sarah Griffiths, gave a spellbinding rendition of her song One Night as pro dancers performed next to her.

But viewers were distracted by how tall she appeared to be.

Fans of the BBC dance show took to Twitter to have their say about her towering presence in a flowing yellow gown.

Fans had questions

“Wow Griff has long legs doesn’t she?” asked one.

“My Dad on Griff: ‘bloody hell she’s 9ft tall'” said another.

“Is she on stilts???” asked another fan.

“She’s bloody tall,” said another.

“There is a very tall lady singing on #strictly at the moment,” said another.

“Fun Fact – Griff actually is 12 foot 8,” joked another viewer.

Griff shared a video on her Instagram of the dress being created for the performance and explained the brief was a ’15ft look.’

“The brief for Strictly is one night but 15ft high,” she said.

“Extremely high stress levels currently making that happen.”

Fans agreed that her performance was ‘amazing.’

“Not sure about the tall dress situation lol. But she was amazing anyway, her performances always are,” said one fan.

“Beautiful song by Griff,” said another.

Tonight Nina Wadia became the first contestant to leave Strictly Come Dancing as she faced Katie McGlynn in the dreaded dance off.

Nina and her dance partner Neil Jones performed their Tango to Would I Lie To You? by Eurythmics.

Then Katie and her dance partner Gorka Marquez performed their jive to Good 4 U by Olivia Rodrigo in a bid to impress the judges and remain in the competition.

Head Judge Shirley Ballas had the deciding vote over which couple would stay in the competition and decided to save Katie and Gorka.

The judges’ scores this week were added to those from last week, and were then combined with the results of the viewers’ votes to decide the lowest scoring two couples facing the dance off.

The remaining fourteen couples will take to the dancefloor next week in a spectacular Movie Week Special when Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday at 6.45pm with the results show on Sunday at 7.10pm on BBC One.
