I'm a body language expert – I spotted war between the Strictly judges and one couple have a secret fiery relationship | The Sun

THERE was 'warfare' between the Strictly Come Dancing judges on Saturday night's show, as well as a 'fiery relationship' brewing between one couple.

That's according to body language expert Judi James, who has revealed the secret signs she spotted on the October 1st episode of the BBC smash.


Judi claims there was a "body language battlefield" going on when Helen Skelton and her partner Gorka Marquez performed.

And she added that it led to an "open spat" between judges Shirley Ballas, Anton Du Beke, Motsi Mabuse and Craig Revel Horwood.

Speaking to the Mirror, Judi revealed: "This was a body language battlefield, not just for Helen and Gorka but an even bigger and more open spat broke out between the judges as they gave their comments.

"It lost some of its dynamic confidence as it went on and the result was open warfare between the judges and some more masked but equally telling body language ‘banter’ between Helen and Gorka themselves."

Judi continued: "The judges do have joke fall-outs but this one looked more authentic, with signals of what appeared to be states of aggressive arousal all round. Craig used the word ‘poor’, referring to a mistake made ‘all the way through’.

"Shirley kicked off, shouting ‘not all the way’ bringing out a stabbing, pointing finger that she aimed first at Craig before bringing it down on the desk. This mimed attack was returned with interest by Craig, who also started pointing.

"Motsi sat between them pretending to dance to keep the peace but even she threw her hands in the air with an expression of open-mouthed shock."

Judi also claims she spotted hints of tension between Helen and Gorka.

"Helen seemed to need to offload some criticism of Gorka," Judi revealed.

"It was done playfully but Gorka’s ‘No!’ and his emphatic mouth grimaces suggested he wasn’t happy. Helen shouted about getting her leg positions corrected in a rather firm way and she also used the pointed finger more than once to refer to Gorka.

"Referring to ‘The kind of person who likes to stand in front of a mirror’ she pointed at Gorka again and although he seemed to agree, these little acts of ‘fun’ banter are so early in the competition that they might just warn of a fiery relationship brewing on and off the dancefloor. "

Helen and Gorka performed the Cha-cha-cha last night to Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande's hit Rain On Me.

They scored 27 out of a possible 40 points.

 During the chat on the balcony with Claudia Winkleman after the dance, Gorka revealed he is trying to get his partner to embrace her sexy side.
