Craig Revel Horwood, 56, has been criticised on Twitter for appearing to forget Tilly Ramsay’s, 19, name on the Strictly Come Dancing results show. Tilly and Nikita Kuzmin were saved this evening, with Adam Peaty and Katya Jones going home after an intense dance-off.

I’m going to choose to save Nikita and of course Tilly.

When choosing who to save, Craig was shocked by the couples in the dance-off.

He said: “Well personally, I wouldn’t have put these couples in the bottom.

“That’s just me personally, but seeing as they are there and I’ve got to choose I am finding it really difficult and this isn’t like me.”

Craig then was left to pick which contestant he was going to save from being voted off the show.

The Strictly judge continued: “But for the reason of a better dancer and a better dance off scenario I’m going to choose to save Nikita and of course Tilly.”

Craig’s long pause before saying Tilly and with Nikita’s name first led to Strictly fans have taken to Twitter to criticise the judge.

Ice_crystal said: “I think Craig meant Tilly Nikita not Nikita and Tilly…”

Heavenstobetsie added: “Craig forgot Tilly’s name for a sec, didn’t he? #Strictly.” (sic)

Attila_hun commented: “Craig didn’t want to see Nikita in the bottom, well, not sure about that.

“Oh and he absolutely forgot Tilly’s name #Strictly.”

Beckie_Miller_ continued: “Craig forgot Tilly’s name.

“Says it all #Strictly #StrictlyResults.”

Tilly and her professional dance partner Nikita performed a Tango to Ava Max’s track Kings & Queens on Saturday night’s show.

In the judges’ comments, Tilly was told by head judge Shirley Ballas that she needed to improve her footwork.

Shirley told Tilly: “I still would like to see more flow when you’re in frame.

“I had a little bit of a look at the feet just to see how they’re going, some things have improved.

“But, it definitely needs more ankle articulation, and you definitely need to be just a little bit further over to his right side.”

Shirley chose to give Tilly a score of just seven, despite having marked her with nines in previous weeks of the competition.

Overall, Tilly and Nikita scored an overall mark of 31 receiving eight’s from the other judges.

You can watch Strictly Come Dancing next week on Saturday at 6.40pm on BBC One.
