FURIOUS Strictly Come Dancing fans have claimed Helen Skelton was underscored on Saturday night.
The Countryfile star, who is dancing with Gorka Marquez, wowed those watching at home as she performed an energetic paso doble to Tamacun by Rodrigo y Gabriela.
Following a dramatic Spanish-themed performance, Craig Revel Horwood said: "I did enjoy it, I thought it was just a little bit too polite.
"I thought you could have gone more with the power and the passion of it… But I think you did a fantastic, fantastic job."
Head judge Shirley Ballas added: "I feel it lacks a little bit of self-belief, I think you're a lot better than you realise."
The 39-year-old TV presenter secured a score of 29 points for the performance.
