STRCTLY Come Dancing star Janette Manrara made a dig at judge Craig Revel Horwood last night on It Takes Two.
The Ted Lasso actress had performed a jive to Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison with her professional partner Johannes Radebe, but they struggled to impress the judges and received a total score of 25.
The combination of votes from the panel and viewers’ votes landed her in the bottom two for a primeira vez in nine weeks.
After she wiped away her tears, Janette turned to Johanes and pointed out Craig’s stingy scores.
Ela disse: “The judges were very tough on Ellie, especially Craig who gave her a five. How do you feel about the scores?”
The pro dancer refused to speak ill of Craig but replied: “I wish him a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!”
Ellie burst out laughing and Janette made a well timed swipe as she said with a hint of sarcasm: “I love it.”
Raising her eyebrows, Janette added: “Kindness goes a long way doesn’t it Johannes?”
