STRICTLY Come Dancing fans left furious by a cancelled tour dates are being given refunds.

Performances in Glasgow earlier this month were called off at the last minute due to the flooding in the SSE Hydro venue, leaving 14,000 fans raging.

But now they are finally being given refunds over the ordeal that saw them waiting in the rain with no communication about the cancellation.

A source told The Sun Online: “Fans are angry about being left out in the cold in Glasgow.

“People weren’t even told the shows were cancelled before after the time the doors were due to be opened.

“They are now in the process in getting refunds but it’s left them bitterly disappointed.”

The Hydro had to issue an apology to fans who were turned away from the show’s on February 2.
