Strictly Come Dancing 2014 judges under fire... from Sir Bruce Forsyth!

Sir Bruce Forsyth has taken a swipe at the Strictly Come Dancing 2014 judges.

The former host has claimed that the panel are handing out too many high marks after just two weeks of performances.

Two celebs scored 35 points at the weekend out of a possible 40, with both Jake Wood and Pixie Lott getting three nines each from the judges.

While we think they probably deserved it, Bruce told the Daily Mirror newspaper this week that he doesn’t think the judges should be giving out such high marks so early in the process.

With ten weeks to go until the final in December near Christmas, he does have a point.

But not all celebs are getting top points from Craig Revel-Horwood, Darcey Bussell, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli with Craig handing out just 2 points to poor Judy Murray at the weekend, while Gregg Wallace and Steve Backshall got just three out of ten from the hard to please judge.

Since Saturday's show, Eastenders actor Jake has been forced to deny he's had secret dance training after shocking with his top Salsa routine.

He tweeted this week: "Just to clarify I have never had a dance lesson in my life. Ever. Fact #StrictlyComeDancing #HisNameIsJake"

The show continues on Saturday and Sunday night on BBC One.
