Strictly Come Dancing viewers told Shirley Ballas it's way to early to be dishing out tens.

The judge shocked everyone by awarding HRVY and his dance partner Janette Manrara full marks for their sensational salsa.

Hard-to-please Craig Revel Horwood gave the singer an eight – with stand-in judge Anton Du Beke offering a nine after they wowed again.

But viewers think Shirley was far too generous as she continued to dish out the perfect scores.

The pair opened the show after slipping down the leaderboard last week to eighth place.

But they were back with a bang as they danced a Cha Cha to great success.

Head judge Shirley gave the electric pair a standing ovation after their performance and she backed that up with her board.

It was the first 10 of 2020 and she said their dance let her "lost for words".

Strictly viewers found some for her – and some said it was too early to be handing out top marks.

Their reaction said it all!

A second viewer added: "That was not a 10, sorry – and who gives a ten a few weeks in?"

Another grumbled: "Not at all 10 worthy – I mean it was good but…. not that good."

One wasn't impressed at all.

Posting after the show, the user wrote: "I don't get why they love HRVY so much he was so average last week!"

But Shirley didn't stop at HRVY and Janette.

She also awarded Bill Bailey and dance partner Oti Mabuse a perfect 10 later in the show before Clara Amfo and Aljaz received the same score.
