James Jordan doesn't want to watch 'Strictly Come Dancing' anymore because he thinks it's "fixed."
James Jordan is refusing to watch 'Strictly Come Dancing' anymore.
The 38-year-old dance professional - who quit the ballroom and latin competition in 2013 following seven years on the show - usually gives a live running commentary of the programme every weekend but he can't bear to follow the series anymore because he thinks gymnast Claudia Fragapane was wrongly given the boot in Sunday (11.12.16) night's show when she went up against Danny Mac in the fierce dance off.
Taking to his Twitter account after the result over the weekend, he said: "Well..... Danny is the best dancer ever to be on Strictly #fact
"But I would have to give the dance off to Claudia... pure class!!! Claudia not doing the Strictly Tour #justsaying Shouldn't have been this bottom 2 anyway.... Such a shame
"I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED STRICTLY But I will no longer be watching. Some people will say bitter, but I can't watch something I feel is unfair (sic)"
Although he was devastated to see Claudia and her partner AJ Pritchard leave the competition, James knew the 19-year-old Olympian's journey on the show had come to an end the night before because he accused the judges of deliberately under-marking her so that Louise Redknapp, Danny and Ore Oduba made the final.
He said: "Well done judges and producers!! You got exactly what you wanted and exactly what I predicted Such a shame, a great show but not fair (sic)."
And James wasn't the only professional who thought Claudia had been "robbed" as his wife Ola Jordan - who quit the show last year to explore other things - agreed with him.
She said: Well, I'm sorry Claudia and AJ. Quickstep was Ace You have been robed by the judges last night putting you on the bottom of the leaderboard (sic)"
