    Strictly Come Dancing's Shirley Ballas jumped out of her seat on Saturday night (November 19) as she fumed at fellow judge Craig Revel Horwood.

    After Craig critiqued Helen and Gorka's performance -which was a Quickstep to ‘Valerie’ by Mark Ronson ft Amy Winehouse – Shirley wasn't impressed and wanted to get her point across.

    Leaping out of her seat, the 62-year-old head judge scolded Craig and left viewers at home – as well as host Tess Daly completely taken aback.

    "I thought your frame was a little bit hoed down," Craig began to say about Helen and Gorka's dance as the audience in the studio booed him loudly.

    "But," he added, but before he could continue Shirley jumped out of her seat and leant of Motsi Mabuse to scold the 57-year-old dancer and choreographer.

    Craig then looked up and fumed: "Shirley. Sit. Down."

    As Shirley went to sit back down, she quickly jumped out of her seat again and raised her voice as she said: "Not at all".

    Craig then hit back and dubbed Shirley's outfit a "lampshade" which left her laughing and clapping.

    As the audience burst out in laughter, Craig complimented Helen and Gorka's dance.

    He said: "But I have to say, your footwork was exceptional."

    Shirley then gave her critique and spoke of how Helen has "grown" throughout the competition.
