Strictly Come Dancing 's fans are convinced there is "beef" between Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse after he kept issuing digs at her on tonight's show.

The BBC One show star couldn't help but criticise his fellow judge's outfit as he made a series of digs at the professional dancer for her outfit and for "shouting" throughout the dances.

Craig continued to aim jokes towards Motsi as the pair - alongside fellow judges Anton du Beke and Shirley Ballas - gave their verdict on tonight's performances.

The first criticism came from Craig when he and Motsi were giving their opinion on John Whaite and Johannes Radebe's American Smooth to 'I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)' by George Michael and Aretha Franklin.

As Motsi told Craig she "didn't know what was going on" between the pair of them, as they kept disagreeing with their opinions on the dances, the acid-tongued dancer and choreographer took aim at her outfit.

"Darling, I know what's going on with you," Craig said as he gestured towards her shoulder pads.

But Motsi quickly fired back: "I'm a queen baby, look at my crown!"

Later on the show, Craig made another dig at his fellow judge, telling her to "be quiet" as they revealed what they thought of Sara Davies and Aljaž Škorjanec's tango - which earned the dancing duo 36 points and a place at the top of the leaderboard.

Asked by host Tess Daly what he made of their dance, he fired back: "I'm finding it difficult to talk now because Motsi was screaming in German throughout."

"Can you just be quiet when the dancing is on please, darling?" he added, addressing Motsi directly.

If two digs weren't enough, Craig made one more shady comment about Motsi's bedazzling outfit, after Anton confessed he would love to dance with Motsi backstage.

"I wouldn't do that with Motsi with those shoulder pads," he told Anton.

But Motsi shrieked back: "This man is jealous of my shoulder pads!"

Fans took to Twitter to joke about the "beef" between the pair.

"Craig vs Motsi tonight is jokes #Strictly," one wrote.

Another added: "Highlight of the night? Craig's seething jealousy of @MOTSI_MABUSE shoulder pads. 'I am a queen, look at my crown' #Strictly."

"I have to say Craig Revel Horwood is bloody grumpy today. Didn’t like his snapping at Motsi at all. #Strictly," a third penned.
