Strictly fans fuming as weeping AJ Odudu is 'robbed' of perfect 40 score after Craig Revel Horwood refuses to give a 10

STRICTLY fans were fuming after weeping AJ Odudu was 'robbed' of a perfect 40 score as Craig Revel Horwood refused to give a 10.

The presenter and her pro partner Kai Widdrington put in a high energy performance of their Charleston.


The judges were thrilled by what they saw, with Motsi Mabuse saying: "I honestly feel so proud, proud of that dance there that you put on that dance floor, so authentic."

Shirley Ballas was next and got all her paddles out, saying: "Let me look in here, I don't think I have a paddle big enough, bold enough for you. That was absolutely off the chart."

Anton Du Beke added it was "amazing" and "brilliant, before moving on to Craig, who said simply: "A-MA-ZING."

AJ was overwhelmed by the comments and grew tearful when she got up the stairs to speak to Claudia Winkleman.

She explained: "This week has been really hard, when you take a lot of tumbles and I kept landing flat on my face, you end up losing confidence a little bit.

"Honestly Kai, I don't know how he does it but he manages to pull out some confidence in me right before the dance even when I'm feeling like I'm not able to do something."

When it came to the judges scores, viewers were furious when Craig issued a nine, while the other three judges pulled out their 10 paddles.

Taking to Twitter, one Strictly fan wrote: "Craig scoring AJ a 9???? PACK IT IN. Outrageous. Should have been a 10! #Strictly."

Another added: "So upset that @AJOdudu and @Kaiwidd were robbed off a 40 because Craig Revel Horwood inexplicably (not for the first time) decided to underscore them. That was a wonderful Charleston #Strictly."

A third tweeted: "AJ and Kai were robbed! That Charleston deserved a 40. Absolutely amazing!"

Meanwhile a fourth agreed, writing: "AJ SHOULD HAVE HAD 40!!! #travesty #Strictly".
