Strictly Come Dancing: Dan Lobb says judges 'underscored' him

Daniel Lobb (Strictly Come Dancing 2011)

Eliminated Strictly Come Dancing celebrity Dan Lobb has hit out at the shows judges, saying that Len and team failed to score him correct on Saturday night. Dan and professional partner Katya Virshilas had scored 24 out of 40 for their Viennese Waltz on Saturday evening.

Speaking to The Sun after his exit, Dan complained: "I'm still trying to work out what the judges wanted from me and Katya and how we compared to other couples.

"I don't really know whether I was any better or worse than others who got higher marks."

He continued: "The consensus each week from the pros is that the judges have been really harsh.

"It's not natural for me to act something out but you do your best. But on the show there is theatre and pantomime and I don't think there's a particularly strict scoring system. It did seem a bit harsh. I got every single step right and I've still been underscored. It's confusing.

"I was disappointed to leave because I felt I was just getting into my stride."
