Furious Strictly fans all slamming the judges for the same reason – do you agree? | The Sun

STRICTLY Come Dancing fans are adamant the judges are overmarking this year's celebs – and they've had enough.

It's just five weeks into the current series and already 10s and nines have been dished out by the judges left, right and centre.

After last week's BBC Centenary episode, viewers took to Twitter to call out the high scoring, claiming the marks were too generous.

One wrote: "The overmarking is getting silly."

A second complained: "Some serious overmarking again for certain couples #Strictly."

Another fumed: "like this themed week on #Strictly has been a bit of a flop… judges overmarking to distract from the fact that the theme tunes have clearly not worked for the dances.

Hamza again topped the pack in week four with a near-perfect 39 points closely followed by Fleur East on 38 and Tyler West on 37.

Meanwhile show judge Craig Revel Horwood has been locking horns with Motsi Mabuse behind the scenes, it has been claimed.

Craig – who recently branded Motsi a "diva" – has been clashing with his co-star who admitted they're "not friends" outside of work.

Insiders claim he was "unhappy" about what Motsi wrote about her Strictly co-stars in her new book, Finding My Own Rhythm, which was released last month.

In it, the glamorous German dancer takes a swipe at Craig's best pal Bruno Tonioli – who left the show last year after 18 years.

Motsi wrote: "Every year I've done the show, I've never had the same panel.

"The first year, we had Bruno Tonioli. Then Bruno wasn't there.

"The third year, Anton du Beke was a judge.

"And the fourth year – who knows?

"We don't talk about Bruno!"

The pop at Bruno is based on a famous song lyric from Disney movie Encanto.

Motsi also made a pointed remark in her book when describing her so-called friendship with her Strictly co-stars.

Motsi – who was a judge on Let's Dance in her native Germany – wrote in her book: "In Germany, the panel on Let's Dance has been together without a change for ten years and we're extremely close – we're friends and we hang out together.

"In the UK, everybody is very professional and we have a good working relationship."

An insider told The Sun: "It's been tense between Craig and Motsi lately and the atmosphere hasn't been good backstage.

"They're both extremely professional and so are able to put aside any niggles during filming, but they are both feeling irritated.

"Motsi shot Craig daggers at his low scores last week – knowing he'd called her a 'diva' in a recent interview – but it's all part of their acts on the panel.

"Their issues stem from the release of Motsi's book last month.

"Craig wasn't happy about what Motsi said about Bruno who was a judge on the show for 18 years, and he's holding a grudge.

"He's a fiercely loyal person and is just defending Bruno after all those years working together.

"He thinks Motsi is too big for her boots, having only joined Strictly four years ago.

"She's been growing closer to head judge Shirley Ballas this series and spending more time as a twosome, but Motsi's comments in the book were tongue and cheek and she didn't want to upset either Craig or Bruno."
