Strictly Come Dancing fans were left scratching their heads at the scores on Saturday night’s show, with the judges appearing particularly tough on our remaining six dancers.
While Blackpool Week saw each of our hopefuls achieving high scores, with no-one dipping below 30, things were markedly different for week 10.
And despite topping the leaderboard alongside Kelvin Fletcher, even hot favourite Karim Zeroual struggled to impress entirely, being criticised for lacking “emotional content” in his contemporary routine.
It seemed to be a particularly harsh week from Craig Revel-Horwood, who only gave Alex a four for her Argentine Tango.
The scoring didn’t go unnoticed by fans, who were quick to take to Twitter.
I think you generally see a little dip in quality & scores after Blackpool just cause there’s so much pressure on that night, doesn’t help that Craig is clearly in a fouler too ???????????? #Strictly

Even Strictly host Claudia Winkleman commented on Craig’s marks, jokingly saying: “Can somebody give some chocolate to Craig?”
We’re towards the latter stages of the competition, but our competitors are yet to have scored a perfect 40 from the judges – with Craig yet to give out a single 10 altogether.
When asked by RadioTimes.com at the Drag Race UK finale party on what would prompt him to give the highest score, he said: “I need to see something perfect. Simple.”
But despite her low score tonight, stats have predicted Saffron will be lifting the Glitterball trophy for 2019.
Fingers crossed she makes it through to Musicals Week…
