The pair appeared to have an awkward spat during the latest episode of the BBC ballroom competition. 

Craig Revel Horwood and Darcey Bussell were seen disagreeing over Strictly Come Dancing contestant Jonnie Peacock.

The Paralympian has been paired with professional dancer Oti Mabuse for the 2017 series of the show.

On Saturday night’s show filmed in Blackpool, the couple performed a Samba to Sweet Dreams by the Eurythmics.

Speaking to the duo, Craig seemed less than impressed with Jonnie’s performance, and didn’t hesitate to give him his views.

“You were leaning over Oti a little bit like the Tower of Piza on that,” he said as Jonnie and Oti struggled not to laugh.

“It was also a little bit stompy for my liking,” Craig added.

Host Tess Daly was seen shaking her head at the criticism as someone in the crowd began to boo.

Not finished yet, Craig continued: “I also didn’t feel like you were leading the dance, I thought you were reacting to Oti rather than actually leading her.”

Darcey then butted in as she replied to Craig, saying: “Rubbish!”

“Eh! Not rubbish actually, Miss Darcey Bussell,” came the star’s response. 

Darcey began to laugh as Craig finally offered some praise to Jonnie and Oti.
