Strictly spoiler account admits they struggled to find a mole for results as bosses ‘crack down’ on leaks
The Strictly spoiler account has alerted fans that they struggled to leak the results show this week, following a strict crackdown from the show’s producers.
Every week, an anonymous person passes on the eliminated couple’s name when the results show is filmed on Saturday night, before it is officially broadcast in Sunday’s result show.
However, The Strictly Spoiler account took to X – formerly known as Twitter – on Saturday to admit they struggled to find a source to reveal the elimination news.
They wrote: ‘Strictly Spoiler update I’ve no mole this week and other reliable sources seem to be struggling too.
‘However those of you around in the pandemic will know that no moles doesn’t equal no spoiler. It does mean it might be in the morning though.’

Many were quick to react saying: ‘Why is it this week you have no moles weird.’
A second questioned: ‘Does this mean the BBC are closing in on their mole?!’
On Sunday morning, The Strictly Spoiler confirmed there was still difficulty finding the result, before it was eventually shared at around 1pm, just hours ahead of the results show.
The leaks can happen because the Sunday night results show is filmed right after the Saturday live show, and the audience, made up of family and friends of those taking part, plus the public – are sworn to secrecy and have their phones taken off them.
This week’s delayed leak come after it was reported earlier in the series that bosses were on a mission to uncover the culprit.
A source told the Daily Mail in September: ‘Enough is enough, it isn’t fair on the fans, they look forward to tuning in to see who will be dancing together.
‘Now procedures are being put in place to see if the mole can be caught though it’s tricky because there are so many people involved with Strictly but the bosses are determined to nail he or she.’

Outspoken: Last year, Strictly judge Anton Du Beke publicly urged the ‘mole’ to stop ruining the show for the viewer
Last year, Strictly judge Anton Du Beke publicly urged the ‘mole’ to stop ruining the show for the viewer.
Appearing on ITV’s Loose Women he spoke out saying: ‘It gets on my nerves. Please stop. I don’t know who you are but please stop. Don’t do it. Why would you do it? Nobody knows who it is.’
He continued: ‘The audience, like the people who go to [Agatha Christie murder mystery play] The Mousetrap for example, which has been going for years, we’re all in it together.
‘Knowledge is power and all that sort of stuff, everyone has an agreement we won’t say anything, so I don’t know who does it.’
The beloved Strictly judge then concluded: ‘They call you a spoiler for a reason – because you’re a spoiler. Don’t do it… Try to stop spoiling it please, because people don’t want to know.’
