Strictly Come Dancing viewers blast Craig Revel Horwood over 'ridiculous' scores

Fans were "screaming" at their screens!

Viewers of Strictly Come Dancing have slammed judge Craig Revel Horwood for his "ridiculous" scores.

Craig has never been the easiest judge to please, but last night he angered viewers as he took things to a whole new level.

The judge awarded Saffron Barker and AJ Pritchard a five for their samba – much to fellow judge Motsi Mabusi's shock.

Fans of the show were quick to slam Craig as unfair on Twitter.

Some said that there was no way Neil and Alex deserved to be at the bottom of the leaderboard.

They also expressed shock at Saffron's low score.

Others wondered what Alex had done to upset Craig, and called the judge's scoring of Saffron "harsh".

Others said the judge, who isn't exactly known for his warm personality on screen, was just plain "mean".

Craig also laid into Karim Zeroual, saying that he thought he lacked emotion not just in his performance this week, but through the whole of the competition.

He ended up topping the leaderboard with Kelvin Fletcher.
