Craig Revel Horwood has hit back at Ola Jordan and her Strictly Come Dancing fix claims.

Pro dancer Ola, who announced last month she was quitting the BBC one series, had claimed suggested that he judges' marks were rigged to keep certain celebs in the competition.

In her rant, in which she also branded Craig “childish and pathetic”, Ola claimed: “Some of the marking is way off. People are over-marked and under-marked.

“As a dancer, you can’t cheat me. I know who has been over-marked and who has been undermarked.”

However Craig has hit back this week, saying he was "so bored of the Jordans now."

"Ola claimed in an interview that the show is fixed and called me pathetic," he noted, "Firstly, Strictly is in no way fixed."

"We’re all individuals on the judging panel, and there’s no way I could be told what to say. I would leave the programme if that were the case.”

He added in the latest edition of Woman magazine: “Funny how she didn’t say that when she won with Chris Hollins in 2009.

"Please - if you’re going to bite the hand that feeds you, then at least do it in a more intelligent way.”

A spokesperson for the BBC responded to Ola's claims last week, branding them "nonsense".

They added: “Each judge scores each dance independently, based on its merits and on their expert opinion.”

Strictly is back this Saturday and Sunday night on BBC One with the live Quarter Finals.
