James Jordan, 42, questioned where the programme had “gone” after Made In Chelsea star Jamie Laing performed an energetic street dance with his dance partner Karen Hauer on the show this evening.

After Jamie and Karen, who have also become known as “Jaren”, performed on the show, James typed: “Where has Strictly gone?”

James then elaborated on what he meant by the seemingly cutthroat remark.
He continued: “Jamie. Was it brilliant? Yes!!! Was it entertaining? Yes!!!
