Brendan Cole was forced to miss ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ over the weekend, but it’ll take a lot more than a lung infection to stop him from tuning in, and he’s now given his verdict on the judges’ scoring.

His partner Anastacia may have landed her best marks yet in the most recent live show, but Brendan doesn’t sound too impressed with the overall leaderboard.

Writing in his Digital Spy column, Brendan says: The scoring was interesting again this week, and in all honesty sometimes I don’t understand the logic in some of the marks.

“Having said that, dance is very subjective, and on ‘Strictly’ we have four different judges from completely different disciplines. You’ve got one from ballroom, one from ballet, one from theatre and one from Planet Italy!

“Everyone is looking for different things, which is really reflected in the marks they’re giving.”

Brendan goes on to add that he reckons Danny Mac will need to do a lot more to nab a 10, stating: “He’s come in at a higher level than some of the other dancers, and if he wants a 10 he’s going to have to earn it and work even harder.”

Leslie Joseph bowed out of the competition in Sunday’s (23 October) results show, leaving both viewers and her fellow contestants heartbroken.

The remaining celebrities are now busy practicing their moves ahead of this weekend’s live show, which will be a Halloween special.
