Strictly Come Dancing contestant Laila Rouass has criticised TV judges for getting ‘too personal’, claiming that they sometimes ‘overstep the mark’.

The actress, speaking at the Tesco Magazine Mum of the Year awards in London, revealed that she sometimes had to stop herself from answering back on live TV.

Laila said: “I think sometimes they get too personal, it happened to me a couple of times.

“While you’re live on air you really do want to say some horrible things back. But you control yourself.”

She added: “A lot of it is pantomime and it’s making good TV. But I think occasionally they kind of overstep the mark.”
