Brendan Cole has jumped to the defence of the ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ judges, following criticism over the scores they gave this year’s celebrities over the weekend.

The competition is getting serious now, and many viewers took to Twitter on Saturday to critique the judges, with a number claiming that Claudia Fragapane deserved better marks for her Argentine Tango.

Claudia found herself trending on Twitter on Saturday (26 November), after her impressive routine, but while viewers were dismayed by the fact she didn’t receive a single 10 from the judges, Brendan agrees with their comments.  

“Some of the things that were picked up on by the judges I actually agreed with for the first time in a while!” he writes. “I feel a bit like I’ve seen the routine before, but I think AJ danced it very well and Claudia danced it very well.

“The production was pretty full-on, too – they got it spot on there.”

Sunday’s results show saw the departure of Ed Balls, whose star turn on the show is something we won’t be forgetting for a long time.

His renewed popularity has also led to calls for him to stand as an MP again, with commentators including Piers Morgan sensing that a political comeback might be on the horizon.
