Fans of Strictly were left in shock last week as the show’s ‘super-leaker’ struck again, revealing who is set to be axed in the results show on Saturday.

While the results show will air at 5.40pm on Saturday evening, and were filmed after Friday’s live show.

The spoiler account tweeted: ‘Struggling to keep up with the random times the BBC are putting #Strictly on?

‘Wish there was another way short of the BBC realising they have 4 main channels, a red button and a streaming service? Well there is another way with the #StrictlySpoiler,’ while linking to an article on his website.

Fans were left with the alleged result, which MailOnline have chosen not to reveal.

‘Absolutely gutted,’ wrote one, while another said: ‘Nah this is a joke!!’

Mole Dave previously told MailOnline that there was an ‘appetite’ among viewers for the spoilers, explaining: ‘I’m just providing a service and am not spoiling anyone’s enjoyment.

‘I don’t put the results for everyone to see and they have to search for my site to find out the results. There is an appetite from people who want to know the results before Sunday.

‘It could be argued that the BBC is to blame for recording something which is of massive interest the day before.’

Bosses have been on the hunt for the mole within their production team that leaks the weekly result to David, who then publishes the name of the evicted couple on his popular website.

The software engineer student insists he doesn’t have one ‘source’ and says he learns the result each week from various audience members.

He explained: ‘I find out the result by audience members there on the night contacting me or from the other strictly spoiler sites around.’

Speaking on this weeks source, he wrote: ‘This week’s spoiler has come from an audience mole sourced by myself and should be accurate’.

Strictly Come Dancing Christmas special will air on BBC One and BBC iPlayer on Christmas Day.
