Judge Rinder has slammed Craig Revel Horwood's marks on Strictly Come Dancing 2016.

The Judge and his pro partner Oksana Platero have both accused Craig of scoring them unfairly after he gave just a six at the weekend.

The pair had a total of 29 from the judges - their highest overall score so far - but Craig's mark stayed low.

After their energetic jive, which included a surprise one handed cartwheel, Judge Rinder and Oksana were slightly disappointed.

Judge Rinder said on It Takes Two tonight: "We'd like to have broken the 30 barrier.

"Poor Craig, as I said on the night, there's so much going on under that desk I don't think he could find the right paddle which was sad.

"I thought that was a little bit low scoring of him because I definitely thought we'd improved that week so I thought that was a bit unfair."

Oksana agreed: "I think it was completely out of place because we definitely had our best week, emotionally and quality of the dance. I'm so proud of the way he danced that Jive."

Perhaps the pair's Halloween performance will be the one to finally win Craig round?

Judge Rinder and Oksana will be dancing the Paso Doble to ‘Born This Way’ by Lady Gaga this Saturday night.

Judge Rinder said: "It's a challenging one, you have to be very specific, the hands really do matter and my facial expressions are perfect for this dance. We'll see, I'm definitely going to channel my inner bullfighting butch."


Apparently the pair will become a butterfly and a moth for the routine.

"If we get too near the lights it's not going to end well," Judge Rinder quipped.

Strictly Come Dancing is back on Saturday night on BBC One from 6:45PM.
