Strictly: Claudia checks on Nigel after being disappointed at scores
Strictly Come Dancing fans have aired their concern for Nigel Harman after he was left “fuming” following the judges’ feedback.
Nigel and his dance partner Katya Jones scored a respectable 31 points for their Quickstep, but Nigel didn’t look happy about it.
After receiving their scores, the former soap star raised his eyebrows as Claudia Winkleman reassured him: “You did good.”
She continued: “You were utterly brilliant. If you loved Nigel and Katya doing the Quickstep and you think they should perform next week, all the details you need to vote are on your screen now.”
Katya could be seen trying to comfort Nigel as Claudia went on: “You can show your support in a few moments when the voting opens.

“I don’t want you to be disappointed, I don’t..I can’t bare it. We will stop the show and just look after you.
“Can everyone cuddle him while I do some reading.”
The host proceeded to speak about the leaderboard and explained Layton Williams and Ellie Leach were neck and neck with 39 points.
Angela Rippon was at the bottom of the board with 28 points, while Nigel was close behind her with 31.
