Strictly Come Dancing news: James Jordan hits back at Craig Revel Horwood!

James Jordan (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer James Jordan has hit back at Craig Revel Horwood over his remarks on the launch show!

Judge Craig commented on Saturday night's premiere after James was partnered with West End star Denise Van Outen: "Denise and James – I hope, actually, that Denise can calm James’ mouth down this series…"

However James insisted he wouldn't be backing down against the Strictly judge if he gets "personal" about the performances or his partner once again.

"The only time I say anything is if things get personal," DigitalSpy quotes the pro as saying today. "You can talk about the celebrities and their dancing and do it in a positive and constructive way. You can do it in a nice way. But don't ever get personal.

"That's my line and that's my argument with Craig."

Denise Van Outen meanwhile wasn't too fussed about hearing what Craig had to say about her dancing abilities.

She claimed: "I'm not worried about Craig. When I've done shows, I've been reviewed and had press nights and I've had some terrible reviews.

"You just have to dust yourself off and get on with it and do a better job next week."

The Strictly Come Dancing 2012 live shows start next month on BBC One.
