In the most recent ‘Strictly’ live show, Claudia Fragapane and Louise Redknapp gained the joint lowest overall score of the night, with the Olympic gymnast eventually being sent home, after landing in the dance-off against Danny Mac.
However, Brendan - who was eliminated in week six of this year’s competition - has now suggested the judges’ scores have been a little off this series.
Writing in his weekly Digital Spy column, he said: “I thought the judging was interesting again - I can’t quite work it out. They’re overmarking certain things and undermarking certain things - it beggars belief.
He continued: “It seems to be the same comments coming out of the same judges time and time again for the same stuff that isn’t actually part of what you’re expecting for what you’re seeing, so that’s my main criticism. But what do I know?”
Earlier in the series, Brendan made similar comments, claiming he “didn’t understand the logic” that went into the judges’ scoring decisions.
Brendan is currently one of the hot favourites to step in when Len Goodman stands down from ‘Strictly’ at the end of the current series, with others tipped for the job including his fellow long-serving professional, Anton Du Beke.
