- Kristina Rihanoff Sticks Up For Her 'Strictly' Partner
- Craig Accused Of Badmouthing Fellow 'Strictly' Judges
- Congratulations Are In Order For This 'Strictly' Pro
Despite getting the first ‘10’ of the series just one week ago, the judging panel admitted that they’d been left disappointed by Jay’s Quickstep to The Who’s ‘My Generation’.
Darcey Bussell admitted she thought his shaky performance was “such a shame” due to his previous success, adding: “This was going to be your dance again but with all those mistakes... You lost your balance.”
Len Goodman agreed, claiming: “Your feet were doing more than your brain could handle. You need to work on eliminating these mistakes.”
Together, Jay and his professional partner, Aliona Vilani, earned just 25 points, making them among the lowest-scorers on the evening.
Viewers had previously complained that Jay’s high scores were due to him having had dance training when he was a teenager, though former ‘Strictly’ contestant Frankie Bridge, who suffered similar criticism during her time on the show, recently stuck up for the former boy band singer.
