Strictly Come Dancing is back on our screens, but as ever with live television, things can go wrong, and it did for footballer Tony Adams during his tango to Go West!.

As Tony and professional partner Katya Jones headed for their critiques, they didn't seem to have an air of confidence, as Tony had gone wrong on a couple of occasions during the challenging routine. The judges all picked up on mistakes, with Katya demonstrating to read judge Shirley Ballas that Tony did know the right posture for the dance.

And when it came to Anton du Beke, the judge joked: "As you come out, we don't know what your routine is, and as it turns out, neither do you."

The comment prompted laughter from the audience, and got Katya to scream: "He does! Can we have another go, please!"

But Anton responded: "That's the unfortunate thing about this show, you only get one go."

Some fans were similarly as scathing in their critiques, with one comparing him to a "sumo wrestler" but others were more supportive of the 55-year-old.

Tony demonstrated his moves following the dance

One said: "Somehow I'm watching strictly instead of the ospreys game... One thing I've learnt is that Tony Adams is a totally class act. What a lovely bloke."

A second said he had sone "really well" while a third posted: "@tonyadams don't feel disheartened with your performance tonight. You were amazing!"

Joking about their pairing, Tony admitted that he was "scared to death" of dancing with Katya! He said that the former Strictly champ was tough, adding: "I think that's what I need in the early days of training… I did a bit of French style and she said, ‘Whatever that was, I never want to see it again."
