Chatting on his HELLO! video collection, Strictly the Fact, James shared his ideas on the course of that led to Dianne and Bobby receiving the least votes from viewers, explaining: “I used to be so shocked… as a result of from what I’ve seen, he is the folks’s favorite. So how has he ended up in the backside two with efficiency? I feel a part of the cause was he was barely over-marked. I feel the different cause was it was Nigel [Harman] making his errors and clearly wanting so devastated.
Watch this week’s Strictly the Fact right here…
“Folks have picked up the telephone and voted for him as a result of he was second from the backside. Then you definitely’ve received Angela and Carlos. They’ve had sort of a little bit of an up-and-down collection, have not they? That they had an incredible efficiency for them. So folks have stated, ‘I cherished that,’ picked up the telephone and voted for them.
“After which you have got Annabel and Johannes, who did a very stunning efficiency… They did an awesome efficiency and folks have picked up the telephone and voted for them – and folks have forgotten about little Bobby.
“In the event that they’d been actually harsh on [Bobby], I feel folks would have picked up the telephone, however they weren’t. So I simply suppose he is simply had an unlucky week. And I do suppose now that he is been in the backside two, he will not be there subsequent week until he has a catastrophe. As a result of folks can be like, ‘I like him, I am voting for him this week, irrespective of how he dances.'”
Talking about his perception that Bobby and Dianne were overmarked for his or her Jive to Jitter Bug, he continued: “I’d have given them an eight. They received eight, 9, 9, 9. You would say, ‘That’s just one extra level,’ however for me, it was by no means a 9.
“That’s the factor, it was by no means a 9. It was a powerful eight. I anticipated his Jive to be a lot worse… I feel he did a improbable job. And Dianne really made the routine fairly troublesome. I really feel as the weeks go on, he is really one in every of the those that I actually see progressing as a dancer… and that for me is what Strictly is about. So I’ve to take my hat to them and say they were good.
“Nevertheless, the judges’ scores put this false pretence in the public’s head that they were going to be secure as a result of all the feedback were wonderful. The scores were actually good. He was fairly excessive up the leaderboard and you sort of then go, ‘Ah, he is secure.’ And I did say that I felt this might be an issue for him. And it was, he ended up in the backside two.” What did you permit? Go away your feedback on the Strictly the Fact video!
