Alfonso Ribeiro replaced Bruno Tonioli on the judges panel on this week’s Strictly Come Dancing. Mike Bushell and Katya Jones performed a Samba to Jump On It this evening in homage to Alfonso’s infamous routine from Fresh Prince of Bel Air. However some fans didn’t agree with his critique of the presenter and felt he was too generous with his score.
After receiving mostly negative comments from the judges, some BBC viewers felt Alfonso overmarked the sports presenter.
Craig Revel Horwood gave Mike a three, Motsi Mabuse gave hime a six and Shirley Ballas marked five.
However Alfonso revealed a seven and remarked: “For the Alfonso bits…”
Viewers were less than impressed as one said: “#Strictly Another over marked dance for Mike Bushell.”

“They need to get Alfonso out of here how is gonna give Mike a seven like that lol #Strictly,” a third said.
A fourth added: “Mike gets a seven.. a seven…a SEVEN!!! from Alfonso. You’ve let yourself down, you’ve let your judges down, you’ve let the whole BBC down! #Strictly
