STRICTLY Come Dancing viewers noticed Fleur East struggled to hide her fury after getting criticised by the judges.
Despite a hugely powerful and energetic performance to end the first live show, she received negative feedback from the judges.
Judge Craig Revel Horwood told her: “It was very wild. A little too wild for me. It needs a little more technique…”
Fleur’s face dropped and she pursed her lips together.
But her frown turned upside down when Craig then added: “But my goodness you are a fantastic dancer.”
When host Tess Daly asked Fleur’s favourite judge Motsi Mabuse if she had impressed her, she held back in singing her praises.
“I’m just impressed by the amount of power and conviction in the steps that you have,” said Motsi.
“We just need to find a way to control it.”
Then when head judge Shirley Ballas delivered her “disappointing” verdict, Fleur’s face dramatically changed.
Moving her jaw to the side, Fleur grimaced at the remarks.
Shirley said: “I’ve spent a lifetime in cha cha cha learning how to straighten my legs, use my feet and for me it starts from the bottom and works its way up.
“I’m not disputing you’re powerful, you give it ‘wham, bam, boom, go’, it is fantastic and I’m not taking any of that away but you do need some contrast and you do have to be able to stand on your legs and feet.”
Viewers spotted Fleur’s reactions, with one saying: “Fleur needs to practice her scoring face.”
Another claimed: “Fleur did well but you can tell she thought she was the bees knees there.”
Someone else laughed: “Haha cocky Fleur was expecting better than them scores.”
Another insisted: “Fleur is rather arrogant had a certain look in her eyes when Shirley was talking.”
While others argued the judges had been unfair towards talented Fleur.
One said: “Unnecessarily harsh judging on Fleur East I thought. She was brilliant #strictly.”
Another commented: “I think the judges were too harsh on Fleur East.
“They seemed to more critical of the actual better dancers and voted them lower in comparison to others. That’s my final thoughts.”
