Strictly Come Dancing pro dancer Neil Jones responded to the attention on his face, which took his mind off Angela Rippon’s scores on Saturday night’s show.
The legendary 79-year-old broadcaster earned her lowest score of the show so far and just six from head judge Shirley Ballas for Nat King Cole’s Waltz to Fascination with her professional partner Kai Widdrington, 28.
As the scores were being read out Neil was animated in the background of the shot and said, “What? No way!” as she first got 7s sevens from Craig Revel Horwood.
However, when Shirley brandished the six, her jaw visibly dropped in shock. Neil later took to Instagram to repost a clip of Angela reposting from fan @sophia_florence_dancer to her 254,000 followers.
The original poster was captioned: “Don’t think @mr_njonesofficial agreed – the face,” followed by laughing emojis while Angela was putting @mr_njonesofficial’s face!” followed by a laughing emoji.
The low mark added to Angela’s total score of just 28, her lowest to date and left her third from bottom on the leaderboard behind Angela Scanlon and Adam Thomas, who both scored 27.
After her performance, the judges weren’t as sarcastic as usual. Anton de Beke said: “It was beautiful and elegant, as we expected from you. It was a bit abrupt because the side steps weren’t big enough.
“It was elegant, it was beautiful. I could have done with a little more flow, but as I say that because the side step was not wide enough, but otherwise a beautiful dance.’
Craig was his usual self, telling her: “I thought your footwork was a bit playful my dear and the frame got a bit loose.”
However, he softened the blow by adding: “You know what? You always bring style and elegance to the dance floor.”
When it was Motsi Mabuse’s turn to speak, she said: “It was a very classic waltz. I love it when we do a full dance on the way you beat the competition.
“And you look beautiful in his hand. You look so easy to dance with and no matter what happens, he always seems like it’s not too much for you, he’s always at ease.
However, she was also criticized, saying: “I feel today, could we push it a bit more? Could we give it a little more so we don’t play it safe?
“We’re in the middle of the competition and we’re looking for our finalists, so if there’s more to give, bring it.”
Meanwhile head judge Shirley, who ultimately gave her the low score prompted by Neil’s reaction, said she needed to “pull in a bit”, but encouraged her to “keep going”.
