Strictly’s Shirley called out by Craig for ‘harsh’ scoring as fans spot ‘feud’

Strictly Come Dancing fans called out Shirley Ballas for being too "harsh" following Nigel Harman and Katya Jones' performance.

Week two of the BBC dance competition kicked off on Saturday (September 30) night and saw the former EastEnders star dance the Viennese waltz with professional partner Katya.

Following their performance, the duo headed over to the panel and head judge Shirley, 63, had plenty of critique for the actor.

She began by praising his "graceful arms" and "connection" with Katya, however informed Nigel that his footwork was incorrect.

Shirley said: "The basic foot action in this dance is much flatter than all the other dances, too much bopping up and down for me and too many technical errors."

The room filled with boos from the audience as Shirley hit back at the room.

"Well you might learn something so hold on a minute," Shirley said as she turned and faced the audience.
