Strictly Come Dancing fans can become judges in their own living room

When she's not writing, Claire Gillespie can most often be found wiping snotty noses, picking up Lego, taking photos of her cat or doing headstands.

Now you can be a Strictly Come Dancing judge, but just on social media

From SheKnows UK
Strictly fans love to get in on the judging from the comfort of their living rooms (don't deny it) and now they can give their scores on Twitter with funky little emoticons.

Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One tonight and, as if the prospect of seeing Daniel O'Donnell showing off his waltz isn't exciting enough, Twitter has introduced a new range of emoticons to bring out every viewer's inner judge.

If you use the hashtag #strictly followed by the number of your score a little emoji will appear with that number, shaped just like the scoring paddles used by judges Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli in the SCD studio.

Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood said: "I love the idea that people at home will be tweeting their own scores with these very funky mini scoring paddles. I am sure that most people who tweet will be agreeing with my scores anyway though as I rarely get these things wrong darlings!"

Unfortunately the emoticons are just for fun so we'll have to put up with Revel Horwood's typical low scores for the first few weeks of the show at least.

Strictly Come Dancing kicks off on Friday, Sept. 25 at 9 p.m. on BBC One.
