Strictly viewers fuming over judges ‘uncomfortable’ Adam Peaty comments

Strictly Come Dancing judges sparked an uproar tonight with comments about star Adam Peaty.

The Olympic swimmer and his professional dancing partner Katya Jones were both dressed in denim for week five as they danced a samba for the Saturday night BBC show on October 23.

They received a score of 29 from the judges for the routine – but viewers said they had barely watched the dancing after being distracted by the same thing.

But it was the judges comments that left viewers feeling “uncomfortable”.

Host Tess Daly said after their dance: “Phew, I’ve got faith in those hips of yours, right focus.”

She handed over to Anton Du Beke, who said “there was a lot about it that made me go twitchy”.

Craig Revel Horwood agreed it “made me twitch too”.

And head judge Shirley Ballas was asked by Tess: “Would you Shirley?”

Giggling, she replied: “Well, I thought it was absolutely fantastic in comparison to your Rumba, but you managed to stay in the pocket of the music.

“Your grounded, you listened to the music, I’m absolutely bowled over, I’m floored, well done,” she described.

Cameron Lee wrote: “If a straight male judge spoke to a female contestant the way Craig, Shirley and Motsi do, there’d be uproar.”

Jade Hunt added: “Couldn’t agree more! Tess included it’s so uncomfortable to watch. If they give him a high mark over the tight jeans and clunky routing, I’m going to be fuming #Strictly.”

Fiona Lapham commented: “I get a little uncomfortable when the judges droll all over the male contestants. If it was men doing it to a female, it would be very different, wouldn’t it… #Strictly.”

Strictly Come Dancing airs Saturdays at 7.15pm on BBC One.
