Strictly’s Shirley Ballas snaps as she’s booed by audience over Emma Barton critique | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV

Tonight’s final performance saw Anton Du Beke and Emma Barton take to the dance floor to perform the Jive to Honey Honey by ABBA. However, while the audience enjoyed the Strictly Come Dancing routine, head judge Shirley Ballas noted there was room for improvement.

Shirley began: “Well there’s no mistaking you’re a natural born performer so now we’ve got that out the way, for me, it was way too heavy, the posture was not in the right place.”

The audience could then be heard booing in the background which angered Shirley.

“Hang on a minute,” she snapped at those sitting behind her. “Let her learn something.

“The posture was not in the right place for the Jive, the bottom is supposed to be out, the chest is supposed to be a little more forward. You were too upright.

“The connections were not short enough and that is why it looked laboured to Craig.

“Craig is exactly spot on. You need to get the correct fundamentals that belong with each dance because you are a natural born performer.

“I can’t let that slide and critique someone else on the same thing. You need to get your posture, your connections, and make sure you have the right technical things going on.

“But otherwise, quite nice,” she concluded as Emma smiled at her.

Kelvin had viewers thrilled with his hip-shaking, gyrating and sassy moves, which landed him top of the leaderboard with 32 points.

Unfortunately for James Cracknell and Luba Mushtuk, they ended up bottom of the leaderboard with 11 points.

Ahead of the first episode tonight, Karim Zeroual was the bookies favourite to win the show and lift the Glitterball Trophy.

Karim’s odds of winning were slashed to just 7/2 with Emma Barton close behind with odds of 4/1.

Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “Strictly betting is hotting up, with Karim still edging favouritism in the most wide open series we’ve seen in years.”

At the end of the scale is David James who is favourite to be eliminated first withs odds of 66/1 to win.

“Unfortunately for David punters reckon his time on the show will be over before it’s really begun, and fellow former athlete James could be out of the door shortly afterwards as well,” Jessica continued.

Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday on BBC One.
