Following their performance, presenter Claudia Winkleman said sorry to viewers.

She said she would like "to apologise for some language earlier that involved Max".

"I don't know the details, I don't know if you heard, if you did, we are deeply sorry.

"Even if you didn't hear, we're sorry on every level."

George and Buswell's performance earned them 20 points and placed them second from bottom in the leaderboard.

Judge Craig Revel Horwood said he was "disappointed" in their effort, adding: "You lack any sense of style, actually, of flair, that this particular dance needs.

"Your arms are extremely haphazard, your hands are like spatulas on the end of them, darling."
