A STRICTLY Come Dancing feud has potentially kicked off after a former pro said Craig Revel Horwood's scoring is 'bordering on insanity'.
Craig, 58, stunned viewers of the BBC show during Saturday's show when he failed to give Layton Williams a 10 for his incredible Argentine Tango, despite the fact he didn't give any notes for improvement to the star.
He also scored Ellie Leach's impressive Rumba an eight, when the other three judges gave her nines.
Strictly viewers have taken to social media to complain about Craig's scoring, and now former pro dancer James Jordan has waded into the controversy.
James, 45, was a dancer on the show from 2006 to 2013 and told Hello magazine in a video interview: "That rumba was exceptional, it was exquisite, it was beautiful, apart from him having his top open as it made me jealous that I'm not young anymore."
Holding up his notepad to the camera, he added: "I put on here, 'Show me a better rumba!' there isn't, you won't find it.

"If this had been next week at Blackpool it would have been all 10s.
"And that's another thing isn't it, is Craig…I said it last week, he's not giving his 10 out because it always happens at Blackpool. He's got to save his 10 til Blackpool. I don't understand it, give what it deserves."
Reflecting on last Saturday's scores, James continued: "If that was an eight, Bobby and Dianne got 8 from Motsi and 8 from Shirley.
"Ellie and Vito got an 8, Bobby got a 7 from Craig. So she's one point better."

Continuing to look through the scores, he added: "Here we go, Craig gave Angela and Kai an 8. So he's saying Ellie and Vito are the same standard as Angela and Kai?
"It's ridiculous, it's bordering on insanity. I just find it a bit baffling."
His words come after Craig hit back at fans who have claimed he is under marking Layton, 29.
When one wrote: "If you say something was "a-mazing" and you give no notes for improvement then why give it a 9?" Craig replied: "Because Fiona, it was amazing but not perfect in my opinion."
