The magician’s assistant noted that there was “absolute horror” when it was revealed that the JLS star was in the bottom two.
But she told viewers of the BBC series that his elimination was down to his fans not voting to keep him safe hinting that if they want her to stay in the competition, they should pick up the phone.
The 59-year-old said the atmosphere in the studio was “awful” when the judges chose to save Mollie King, before issuing the warning.
“The studio went completely quiet,” Debbie wrote in her column for The Telegraph.
“Because he was so good, the viewers thought he was safe. It just goes to show what happens when you don’t vote.
“The judges score on pure technique and they have a knowledge that we don’t. Mollie improved her technique in the dance-off and so that’s why head judge Shirley [Ballas] saved her.”
It comes after Shirley told the Loose Women panel that viewers were to blame for Aston’s departure, commenting: “I ask Great Britain, where were those votes? Why were they in the bottom two? Why were they there in the first place?”
Debbie is set to perform her sexiest routine to date on the show this week as she takes on the role of an optician.
The widow of Paul Daniels will be performing the Salsa and will be seen giving professional partner an eye test.
Furthermore, she is said to be donning a very racy ensemble with costume designer Vicky Gill revealing that she will be wearing a slinky little dress.
“Very simple, one layer of mesh, quite sexy for Debbie this week,” she told It Takes Two host Zoe Ball.
Strictly Come Dancing 2017 continues Saturday at 6.45pm on BBC One.
