Cheryl snaps at Oti Mabuse in tense scenes in The Greatest Dancer

The niceties between the dance captains on The Greatest Dancer went well and truly out of the window on Saturday’s show.

Cheryl snapped at co-star Oti Mabuse as they argued over which dancers they wanted to take through to the next stage of the competition.

Along with fellow dance captain Matthew Morrison , Cheryl and Oti were attempting to decide which dancers they wanted on their teams.

Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti was the first to choose with her decision raising eyebrows with Cheryl and Matthew.

Former Glee star Matthew was next to decide, which prompted Cheryl to say: "If you’re dead serious about it, I’m going to take these and she (Oti) can’t have a say in it… That’s how this works."

Matthew questioned Cheryl’s motives for choosing her acts, suggesting: "Are you going to nurture what they have already or are you going to try and change them completely?"

Cheryl asked: "Are you and I just going to fight all day?"

One viewer said: "Cheryl was a little bit of a bully there wasn’t she? Especially to poor Oti #GreatestDancer."
