Strictly Come Dancing’s Darcey Bussell makes major grammatical error on TV

Strictly Come Dancing judge Darcey Bussell made a MAJOR grammatical error on TV tonight.

The ballet dancer slipped up while giving her critique for former EastEnders star Charles Venn and his professional partner Karen Clifton.

In fairness to Darcey, she may have been put off by Charles’ horrifying appearance, which featured some "scary hair".

She was impressed by the "fast and frantic" Jive, but claimed there were some timing issues.

Darcey said: "There was a moment where you really had timing issues. I saw two Pacific, very Pacific, sadly."


Strictly viewers were quick to point out the grammatical error, as Darcey should have been saying "specific".

They flocked to Twitter to make sure Darcey knew she had made a mistake.

One viewer said: "Pacific is an ocean. Specific is something completely different"

Another added: "I do wish Darcy would say “specific” and not “Pacific”"

A third agreed: "Darcey Bussell doesn’t know how to say "specific""

Forgetting her comments about an ocean, Darcey managed to upset the audience with her harsh words.

The crowd booed the normally mild-mannered judge when she attacked Charles and Karen.

She hit out at the Casualty actor for his "flappy feet" during his Jive.

Impressed Craig Revel Horwood said: "Feels good doesn’t it darling."

Giggling Darcey added: "I know it feels great."

Lets hope Darcey can correct her own mistakes.

*Strictly Come Dancing airs tonight on BBC One at 6.50pm
