James Jordan in nasty Twitter spat with Danny John-Jules

James Jordan was slammed by Danny John-Jules as the professional dancer said the contestant’s mother ‘looked miserable’ while watching her son perform on Saturday’s edition of Strictly Come Dancing.

Ballroom dancer James, 40, took to Twitter to comment on the BBC show, stating that the 58-year-old’s elderly parent ‘looked as miserable as him’ during her time in the audience.

Clearly unimpressed by his remarks, the Red Dwarf actor responded: ‘So you take the p*** out of an 82 YO woman with Alzheimers #BigMan’ (sic).

Danny’s wife Petula Langlais was also disappointed in the CBB star’s comments as she wrote: ‘Out of order! Attacking an elderly woman who has done nothing to you! You know nothing about our personal lives! That is below the belt!!! Love and light to you.’  

TV personality James defended his tweet, which has since been deleted, as he said hours later: ‘I just stated facts… said what everyone was thinking. Not attacking anyone.  

‘She did look miserable when the camera was on her, but I’m sure she is a lovely lady. No malice intended. But everyone gets offended over everything nowadays’, he added.

There are more than 850,000 dementia sufferers in the country, with Alzheimer’s disease the most common form. Symptoms of the disease often include difficulties with thinking and memory loss. MailOnline has contacted James’ representative for further comment.

Meanwhile, Strictly viewers claimed Danny was ‘undermarked’ for his Samba routine with dance partner Amy Dowden on Saturday, amid ‘bullying’ claims on his part.

He recently spoke on the ‘bullying’ reports as he insisted he’s ‘the victim of a vendetta’ after Amy, 27, allegedly fled their training session on Wednesday and told producers that she didn’t know if she could continue with the show.

During the episode over the weekend, the actor was told to ‘chill out’ by judge Craig Revel Horwood after he received mixed feedback for his routine to Feels Like Home.

'Big man': Clearly unimpressed by his remarks, the Red Dwarf actor responded: 'So you take the p*** out of an 82 YO woman with Alzheimers #BigMan' (sic)

After his Samba routine, Danny received mixed feedback from the judging panel and received scores of six, seven, seven and seven from the judges, which gave him a total of 27 points.

Viewers were less than impressed over the judges’ verdict, just weeks after the Paddington native received the first 10 of the series for his Jive routine.

Danny hit headlines earlier this week over claims he ‘bullied’ his dance partner during rehearsals on Wednesday, and has since said he is ‘the victim of a vendetta’ in an interview with The Sun.

The actor was hit with allegations that he left Welsh dancer Amy in tears after he ‘repeatedly shouted and swore’ their training session earlier this week.

‘I’m a man who says what he means and means what he says, my conscience is clear over all of it. It seems to be turning into a vendetta. For some reason, some don’t want me to be successful on Strictly’, he told the publication.

During the episode, Danny admitted that ‘everybody screws up’ during the show and was even awkwardly told to ‘chill out’ by judge Craig, 53, after the routine.

The Death in Paradise actor went on to like several supportive tweets from his fans who accused the judges of ‘undermarking’ him after he found himself at the bottom of the leaderboard, despite not making a single mistake. 

Since the ‘bullying’ reports, Danny’s dance partner Amy has also dismissed the ‘bullying claims’, although she did admit that things got ‘intense’.

Talking to the Sunday People, she said: ‘I think we have a family relationship and Petula says she sees me as part of the family.’     

The pair also dismissed the reports on Friday’s It Takes Two, although they did admit that ‘things did get a little intense’ during rehearsals.
