Strictly pros blow whistle amid 'fix' claims after judges fail to mention ‘complete dance disaster’ | The Sun10/11/2023
STRICTLY Come Dancing's former professionals have added fuel to "fix" claims after suggesting the judges seemingly ignored a "dance disaster."
Ex BBC show stars and married couple James, 45, and Ola Jordan, 41, took to their YouTube page to give their take on Saturday's Movie Week routines.
They summarised Annabel Croft, 57, and Johannes Radebe's Waltz to Moon River as blunder filled, and stated: "They messed up the whole routine pretty much."
The former tennis player and her popular Strictly Come Dancing pro bagged a total of 30 points on the night, leaving them sixth on the leaderboard.
Talking of Annabel's routine, James told his YouTube following: "I do find with her she looks quite unrehearsed.
"There was loads of mistakes, there was one complete section she totally messed it up.

"Not one judge mentioned it – why's that? They are right in front of you!"
He added: "I am sitting here at home going 'oh my god she has messed up the whole routine.'
"Not one judge mentioned it."
He then went on to say he would have given the sports ace a score of five – compared to the sevens and eights that were dished out.

James summarised: "They messed up the whole routine pretty much."
He added how the judges have "one job – to mark what they see and be honest" before claiming their scoring was "wrong."
He added: "It means you can mess up the whole routine and get 8, 8, 7, 7."
James added how the scoring had "gone mad."
The fix claims came after head judge Shirley Balls was accused of "favouritism" when she gave her first 10 of the series.
Last week, fans also called out the scoring for BBC veteran Angela Rippon, 78, with many believing Strictly's oldest-ever competitor had been over-marked for her Foxtrot.
Meanwhile, previous Strictly judge Arlene Phillips recently confessed how the best dancers on the series don't always win.
In an interview with OK!, Arlene said: "I know they've got people on it that have danced in the past but, ultimately, Strictly nowadays is about who the public fall in love with.
