Strictly Come Dancing judges upset Nicky Byrne's children!

Nicky Byrne (Strictly Come Dancing)

The Strictly Come Dancing 2012 judges have been upsetting Nicky Byrne's children with their criticism!

Nicky posted one of the lowest scores of the weekend last Saturday night, after pro dancer Karen Hauer incorporated an illegal lift into their routine.

With a score of just 17 points, Nicky was only one spot above the bottom.

Fortunately there was no public vote or elimination, but the harsh comments from the judges upset Nicky's children!

A show source told The Sun today: “When Nicky went home after the show, his little boys were quite upset and asked him why the judges were picking on him.

“They said they thought Craig was a bully and didn’t understand why he was being so mean.

“Unfortunately, comments like that stick with kids.”

Both Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli hit out at Nicky and Karen's performance at the weekend.

Bruno told Karen: “It looked like you were dancing with a cardboard cut-out.”

No doubt both Nicky and Karen will be hoping to get back into the judges' good books this evening!
