Strictly Come Dancing 2012: James Jordan blasts judges (and Alesha Dixon!)

James Jordan (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 pro James Jordan has hit out at the show's judges, past and present!

Speaking to TV Magazine, James claimed that the panel were lazy... but he'd love to be in their position!

"I love to do the judges' job," he told the publication this week. "What an easy job they have. We get paid probably a third of what they get - we do seven days a week, 12 hours a day; they rock up on Saturday slag a few people off and go home."

James admitted: "I can't change the way I am; sometimes my mouth engages before my brain", before going on to give a rather honest view on this year's new judge Darcey Bussell, who replaced Alesha Dixon on the panel.

"Before Darcey, with Alesha - and I never said this at the time because she's a nice girl - it was hard to take her seriously; she'd only been dancing five months," he told the magazine.

"When Darcey critiques I listen - she knows what she's talking about."
