‘Strictly Come Dancing’: Len Goodman And Craig Revel Horwood Seriously Disagreed Over Ore Oduba’s Performance

'You just make it up! You make up what you want to say!'

Tensions were running high in the ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ semi-final on Saturday (10 December) night, but it wasn’t the dancers losing their cool.

Instead, Len Goodman and Craig Revel Horwood had a heated debate over Ore Oduba’s first dance.

The panel were offering their takes on the BBC Sport presenter’s quickstep and when Craig nitpicked faults - surprise, surprise… - Len was not happy and rose out of his chair to let everyone know.

Visibly irate, he asked Bruno to “help me out”, telling Craig: “You just make it up. You make up what you want to say.”

Darcey Bussell kept the peace, but when Craig then awarded Ore eight points - while the rest of the panel gave 10s - Len was still less than pleased.

Ore and his pro partner Joanne Clifton did better in their second dance of the night, and ended up topping the leaderboard, leaving Danny Mac in second, while Louise Redknapp and Claudia Fragapane tied in third.

On Sunday (11 December), one couple will leave the competition, leaving three to fight it out for the Glitterball trophy.
