Len said: “Look at those stupid judges, what’s the matter with them? Sit down and get on with your judging!”

Speaking about Ranvir’s Jive – which received low marks from the judges – he continued: “It was just the rotten luck that she got the one dance that didn’t suit her on the most important semi-final.

“However, throughout the series, she was terrific. She was one of my certainties to make the final.”

“She claimed she had no dancing experience, but you take a look at that… she’s obviously had this sort of ballroom dancer inside of her that’s been bursting to come out.

“I think she was robbed, she should still be in there for the final. She did phenomenally.”
