The new show, Simon Cowell's first BBC production, left many baffled as it debuted last week.

And it continued to leave viewers bemusedtonight when judges Cheryl, Oti Mabuse and Matthew Morrison wore the clothes as last week.

One tweeted: "Wait all the auditions were filmed on the same day? So it’s got the same awful audience as last time that can’t see talent? #Thegreatestdancer."

A third remarked: "Are the dance coaches wearing the same outfits as last week? #TheGreatestDancer."

This comes after viewers struggled to warm to the concept of the new show as they tried to understand what was going on.

But rather than the judges voting them through, it was up to the audience to make the final decision as to whether they would go through to the next round.

The process has already sparked frustration for Cheryl over the audiences "wrong decisions".

"It’s a shame because despite his amazing technique, I don’t think the performance resonated with the audience. It was frustrating because all the Dance Captains thought it was a really strong performance, but the audience didn’t press their buttons.

But she accepted that it very much comes with the territory.

"The great thing about The Greatest Dancer is that the audience hold the power," Cheryl adds.

"They will perform and if the audience likes them and 75 per cent press ‘yes’ on their keypads, it lights up the room and the mirrors open to reveal the audience."
