Strictly’s Molly Rainford breaks down in tears after brutal comments from Craig Revel Horwood and Anton Du Beke


STRICTLY Come Dancing star Molly Rainford broke down in tears after judges Craig Revel Horwood and Anton Du Beke’s brutal comments.

The 21-year-old and pro dancer Carlos Gu gave their own rendition of the Argentine Tango to Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God) by Kate Bush.

Strictly’s Molly Rainford got emotional after her performance critique from Craig Revel Horwood

Craig wasn’t impressed with their dance

The pair, who were dressed as vampires, definitely showed off their best moves on the dance floor.

They got a standing ovation from head judge Shirley Ballas, but Anton thought it “lacked intensity” to make it a showstopper.

Craig added: “Everything in this dance is a reaction to the leader. I felt like you were dancing two different dances.

“I felt like you weren’t actually following. It’s true.

“I thought that performance was really really ugly. You need to make that a lot more beautiful.”

Later on presenter Claudia Winkleman asked if Molly enjoyed the dance.

The TV presenter got emotional as she explained: “I have such an amazing time out there.

“We definitely were nervous because having that case of nearly going home, it’s awful.

“I’m having the best time with Carlos, he’s an amazing partner…”

As she spoke about the pro dancer she fought back the tears.

“He’s been so good to me,” she continued.

Despite Anton’s critique, he awarded the two 9 points, just like Shirley and Motsi.

Craig gave Molly and Carlos 6 – totalling their points to 33.

Despite their opinions, fans watching thought she did very well.

One questioned on Twitter: “#Strictly Anyone else think that Craig undermarked Molly atrociously?”

A second added: “Molly was the best so far tonight idc x #Strictly.”

“so craig gave tony a 7 but molly a 6?? make that make sense #Strictly,” a third chimed in.
