The judge has pointed out that while Peter and his partner Janette Manrara aren't at the bottom of the leaderboard each week, he’s not exactly flying high either.
Speaking to Woman magazine, he states: “Sorry to say it but Peter’s becoming a bit of an also-ran in the competition.
“Technically, he’s very good but he needs to stand out from the crowd more.
“I’d be worried if I were him. He’s missing the ‘It’ factor – and I want to see him fly not fail.”
Jay even scored the first 10 of the series earlier this month, and his pro coach Aliona Vilani has been pushing him to get a buff bod like her previous partner and winner Harry Judd.
Speaking on ‘It Takes Two’, Jay said: “She made me do push-ups. Ten a day. But she makes me do them real, because Harry had great arms! She knows the real actual way of doing it, because I used to fake it."
‘Strictly’ continues on Saturday 21 October, with the annual Halloween special.
