“They took a risk this week with the Vogue dance (If you can call it that) It just didn’t pay off. And people at home obviously felt the same.”
Giovanni has now aired his views on criticism surrounding the dance, including James’ remark.
In an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, the Italian Ballroom and Latin dancer explained that although James is entitled to “his own opinion”, he and Michelle were trying to bring “something different” to the series with their performance.
Giovanni said: “Well, with James Jordan, it’s his own opinion. I’m sure that around the country the opinion was split between people who loved it and people like James Jordan who didn’t like it so it’s a 50/50, you take it as it is.
