Strictly Come Dancing 2014 is the WORST EVER SERIES, at least says former pro James Jordan.
The dancer has claimed in a new interview this week that the latest run is struggling... because he's not there.
That, and the retirement of Sir Bruce Forysth.
James told Closer magazine: "The ratings are down. They're struggling without Bruce Forsyth hosting or me dancing. It's the worst Strictly ever.
"I think [Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman] are both amazing but I do believe there should be a man presenting it too."
At the weekend, James claimed he was "happy" not to be on the show this year after watching some dodgy performances.
"And that's why I'm happy I'm not back. Nice guy but pathetic idea. Makes a mockery of ballroom and Latin," he said referring to Mark Wright's Pasodoble.
However while James is gone, his wife Ola is still on the show... although she's not sure for how long.
"I don't know if I'll come back. This is my ninth series doing the show and I've always said I'd do 10 but now I'm not sure," she said.
And the sexy performer, paired with Steve Backshall, added: "You work with the partner you're given. I didn't expect Steve but I was pleased to get him.
"Am I confident about him in the competition? Um. Yeah."
Strictly continue this Saturday night on BBC One.
