Let It Shine is facing sexism accusations following this weekend's show

Harry, was asked by Martin Kemp, one of the judges, to take off his top. Instead of doing so immediately, he said that he would do it if he got through to the next round.

Sure enough, he received enough points to see him through and so he removed his top.

Viewers were not impressed by the sexist double standards and complained on social media.
