Strictly Come Dancing’s Claudia Winkleman issued an apology this evening over Max George’s language off-screen.

The presenter seemed flustered as she made the comment following JJ and Amy’s dance, admitting that she wasn’t sure if viewers had heard what he had said.

Max and Dianne had danced an American Smooth tonight, but didn’t receive the positive feedback they had hoped for – particularly from Craig.

Following their critique, Max and Dianne didn’t seem too happy as they made their way up the staircase and part of the sound from their mics could be picked up.

However, despite no swear words appearing to be heard, Claudia apologised.

After JJ and Amy’s scores were announced this evening, Claudia addressed viewers: “I just want to quickly apologise for some language that involved Max.

“I don’t know the details, I don’t know if you heard. If you did, we’re deeply sorry. Even if you didn’t hear, we’re still sorry.”

Following the apology, viewers flocked to Twitter to find out what Max had said.

One tweeted: “DID MAX SAY “F***” ON BBC SATURDAY EVENING? I really hope so!! #strictly.”

While another queried: “Claudia apologising for Max – at least she made it funny #Strictly.”

Viewers later discovered that Max had shouted “f***ing get it!” straight after finishing his dance.

Sharing a clip, one fan tweeted: ““f***ing get in” MAX THIS IS A FAMILY SHOW . #strictly.”
