James Jordan, 43, was a Strictly Come Dancing professional for a number of years and is known for his outspoken opinion. However, he has taken to Twitter this evening to blast judge Craig Revel Horwood, 56, over his criticism of Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernices’ dance.
I’ll be honest.
Rose and Giovanni stole the semi final with their first dance of the night, dancing a Waltz to How Long Will I Love You.
The couple’s extraordinary dance scored 39, with a 9 coming from Craig a distaste to many.
James took to Twitter to criticise Craig’s scoring in view of his 279,100 followers.
He penned: “Craig talking about her missing a heel right in front of him.

“I’ll be honest – you could be that picky about ANY of the dances but you just wouldn’t
“As a performance it should be higher than John, FACT!”
Many Strictly fans took to the comments to agree with James on Craig’s “picky” scoring.
LowkeyRhys said: “Craig is too picky!! Motsi is the best judge.”
LynnTurley added: “It’s odd how they let small faults go with one couple but pick on it with another.
“They really do need to have a consistent line.”
Gazpen commented: “Totally agree! He’s being too picky when it suits him. That was definitely a 10.”
James has had nothing but good things to say about Rose and Giovanni, even calling the pair “the true winners of Strictly”.
He penned: “Rose. OMG!! This actually gave me a warm feeling inside… true ballroom at its best.

“Well done Giovanni on making it beautifully simple. I absolutely loved it!! Couldn’t fault it.
“In my eyes they are the true winners of Strictly 10’s.”
James appeared on Strictly as a professional dancer from 2006 to 2013.
He never won the show whilst he was on it, however came a close second when he was paired with Denise Van Outen in 2012.
The couple lost out to Olympian Louis Smith and his partner Flavia Cacace.
James is married to former Strictly professional Ola Jordan, with the pair welcoming their first child Ells in February.
Ola had a three year IVF battle to have Ella, with the process being very “mentally hard” on herself and James.
