Strictly Come Dancing’s Joe McFadden DROPS partner Katya Jones but the judges ignore it

It was an epic fail for the actor

Joe McFadden dropped partner Katya Jones at the end of his Strictly Come Dancing performance on Saturday night – and only one of the judges seemed to notice.

Viewers flocked to social media after Katya was dropped at the end of the pair’s energetic Salsa in a painful-looking moment.

Judge Craig Revel Horwood called the couple out on the drop, saying: “You lost balance at the end which was unfortunate.”

However while the judges seemed to downplay the blunder, viewers weren’t so forgiving.
