Strictly fans convinced they’ve spotted a secret feud between show judges after ‘dig’


STRICLTY Come Dancing fans think they have spotted a secret feud between the show’s judges.

On last night’s show some felt Shirley Ballas was taking a pop at Mosti Mabuse and Anton Du Beke over some of their scoring.

Strictly Come Dancing fans think they spotted tension amongst the judges

Shirley Ballas suggested she didn’t agree with some of the scoring

At one point the head judge told the others she couldn’t just give out tens if she didn’t think the dance was “worth of a ten”.

Clocking the remark, one person wrote: “There is tension between the judges because of Shirley’s dig at Motsi and Anton.”

A second added:  “I noticed Anton getting a bit shirty with Shirley but I didn’t catch what kicked it off.”

While a third remarked: “That was Shirley having a dig at Anton #strictly.”

It’s not the first time those watching the show have questioned the relationship between the judges – with many noting simmering tension for weeks.

In the past eagle-eyed viewers spotted Motsi roll her eyes at Craig during a discussion about Molly Rainford’s tango. 

The pair had previously shared a heated exchange after Craig gave the CBBC star a six, while other judges awarded her a nine. 

And last month acid-tongued Craig branded Motsi a “diva” in an interview.

Shirley has disagreed with her fellow judges on numerous occasions during the competition when it comes to scoring.

For example in week two’s results show, Craig, Motsi and Anton all voted to save Matt Goss and his partner Nadiya Bychkova over Kaye Adams and Kai Widdrington.

However, when asked for her vote, Shirley said firmly that she “didn’t agree” with her fellow judges.

Last night saw Hamza Yassin fight off close competition from Molly Rainford to top the Strictly leaderboard in the semi-finals of the competition.

The five remaining celebrities, who have each topped the leaderboard during their time on the BBC One show, all performed two dances in a bid to secure their place in the final next week.
