The Fresh Prince of Bel Air star Alfonso Ribeiro has stepped in to join Strictly judges Shirley Ballas, Darcey Bussell and Craig Revel-Horwood on the panel, replacing Bruno Tonioli for week five — and viewers are already enjoying his flamboyant presenting style.
The actor, who made his name in the Will Smith sitcom as Carlton, and who later won US Strictly equivalent Dancing with the Stars, twirled his way onto the dance floor along with the other three judges at the start of the show.
But it seemed that viewers had been hoping Alfonso would perform his iconic Carlton dance at the start of the show.
“Last week was about people wanting to see the dance of shame,” one Twitter user wrote, referring to Seann Walsh and Katya Jones’ first dance after they were caught on camera kissing in London. “This week is about people wanting to see the dance of Carlton!”
