Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood split viewers last night (October 2nd) when he attacked new judge Anton Du Beke.
The couple returned to the jury for the second week of the show, along with Shirley Ballas and Motsi Mabuse.
But when Craig denounced Anton for his assessment of Katie McGlynn, some fans weren’t impressed.
Strictly speaking: Craig Revel Horwood is “digging” with Anton Du Beke
The moment came shortly after Katie and Gorka Marquez hit the dance floor.
Shirley noticed a few mistakes before Anton gave his verdict.
The former professional dancer admitted that he had not noticed any mistakes in the routine.

Anton, who replaced Bruno Tonioli, said: “Fortunately, I didn’t notice the mistakes.
“Maybe I wrote something down.”
He added, “You are a good actress and that is what you put into your performance.”

However, Craig noted, “You need to keep a watchful eye, darling.”
When the audience whistled the judge, he added: “A little note for Anton.”
And the moment did not go unnoticed by the audience.
Craig strictly divides the audience
Some fans were unimpressed by Craig’s comment.
On Twitter one said: “Craig, you should criticize the dancers, not the other judges #Strictly.”
Another added, “Is Craig doing well? He’s still Craigier than usual tonight! #Strictly #StrictlyComeDancing. “

A third railed: “Hypocrite @CraigRevHorwood who never notices the mistakes of Giovanni’s partners criticizes”
@TheAntonDuBeke for missing out on Katie’s mistakes. “
A fourth tweeted, “Does anyone else feel like @CraigRevHorwood was trying to dominate @TheAntonDuBeke, the newest judge.
“Don’t start Craig. Anton is a popular #StrictlyComeDancing. “
Don’t start Craig!
A fifth commented, “Craig is driving me crazy. Strictly speaking, are we not yet past this mean judge character? It’s so damn outdated and annoying. “
Others seemed to love Craig and Anton’s spit, however.
They added, “Here for the Craig / Anton beefing, tbh #strictly #scd.”
Another agreed: “The beef between Craig & Anton sends me.”
