The audience at home largely agreed when the famously shoddy judge criticized the BBC Breakfast presenter’s routine – which is why her impression astonished them.

Cynicals watching the BBC series at home have long speculated that the judges are deliberately overmarking Dan in order to keep him in the competition.


Despite being the weakest dancer, he has yet to make it to the bottom two and is in danger of being sent home.

Chief Justice Shirley Ballas routinely gives nines to strong actors, despite giving them low marks.

And when he gave her nine more this evening, Craig was less impressed—and didn’t hesitate to tell Dan exactly what he thought.

The judge, who returned this week after being forced to miss last weekend’s show, told the star: “It was joyful. The hip action was non-existent, you swung your hip; great, anyone can do that.

“It looked like your feet were Velcro-ed on the floor and getting stuck. You were walking and stomping every couple of times and still stopping.”

However, he admitted that he planned to add an additional point going forward: “All this being said, I thought it was a lot better than I expected… I expected it to be a complete and utter disaster.” It would be, but it was not.

“I can see you’re working so hard, I’m going to mark you one point more than I would normally do for your participation.”

Dan admitted he was expecting a four out of 10 after his rant, but Craig was full of surprises.

He gave his BBC colleague a six out of 10 – which caused fans to rage.

Taking to Twitter, she accused Judge of being “overzealous” as her co-stars, with one writing: “I wish the judges would stop overmarking Dan, 8 and 9 is a ridiculous, even That Craig’s 6 was also very generous.”

Another echoed: “What! Even Craig was too much in there, what are they playing?”

A third tweeted: “Why did I see 8/9 from Cynthia?

Another enraged: “Craig still outnumbers Dan.”

Dan, 44, has previously hit back at critics, asking them not to “shout” on his Twitter page.

He wrote at the time: “Please don’t yell at me. I’m having an amazing time, my kids are happy and it’s only a TV show!

“To those asking, I don’t know who is going to vote for us (probably not Craig) but we are incredibly grateful to everyone. See you next week. Can’t wait.”
