STRICTLY star Emma Weymouth’s aristocrat husband erupted in fury as his wife faced a shock dance-off.
Viscount Weymouth had to be calmed down backstage where he was having drinks with pals.
Onlookers told how the businessman, whose name is Ceawlin Thynn, became agitated while watching the show on a TV monitor.
One explained: “He was hopping mad — it made a real scene. Everyone had had a few drinks so the volume levels were high.
When Emma joined him she seemed to be desperately trying to calm him down. It was rather awkward.”
Sources close to the viscount said his anger on Saturday night was triggered by a fault with the TV feed.
His wife and partner Aljaz Skorjanec were in the middle of the leaderboard but fell to the bottom two after the public vote.
They eventually triumphed over Radio 1 DJ Dev Griffin.
