Poor Motsi Mabuse inadvertently put her foot in it judging one couple on Strictly Come Dancing this evening.
Neil Jones made a welcome return after two weeks on the subs’ bench due to injury.
He and partner Alex Scott performed an impressive routine, which Alex had practised with Kevin Clifton, her stand-in partner, for part of the week.
I guess Motsi doesn’t know about last years affair.
While praising the couple, Motsi explained it had felt like an affair, with Alex being with another partner, before reuniting with her main man.
While it was a totally innocent comment, all everyone was thinking about was last series as Neil’s then wife Katya hit headlines for her infidelity with her celeb partner Seann Walsh.

Bruno warned Motsi that her comment would create headlines, and Twitter was awash with amused remarks about her blunder.

Still thinking about what Motsi said. Considering what happened to Neil last year, affair not really the best choice of words… 😶 #Strictly #SCD
