Strictly star sparks feud with pro dancer as they clash over Helen Skelton

Jayde Adams has become embroiled in a social media spat with former Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Joanne Clifton.

The 38-year-old comedian was a contestant in the current series of the BBC dancing show but was kicked out on the fifth week fo the competition.

However, Jayde didn't seem to pleased with Joanne's comments about her co-star Helen Skelton, who will compete in the final this weekend.

Joanne shared her thoughts on the final four pairings in the Daily Express with the headline 'Helen Skelton's journey is like no other, her new confidence needs to stay, JOANNE CLIFTON'.

But the comic was quick to call out Joanne's article on Twitter.

Posting a link to an article, Jayde penned: "Before #Strictly Helen was the 2nd woman only to finish 78-mile Namibian ultra marathon 23h 45. Kayaked the Amazon, tightroped 150m over Battersea Power Station, cycled to the South Pole, TV, radio, sports career & had 3 babies one she birthed herself. Not confident? HAHAHAHA."

Hitting back the fellow day, Joanne re-shared Jayde's tweet and wrote: 'Not sure about this comment.

'I'm quite obviously commenting on her confidence in Ballroom dancing, not her life. Coz my article is OBVS about Strictly.

'Maybe we should say positive things, encourage them & celebrate them being Finalists instead of making something negative out of it?"

The Twitter war comes days before the final where Helen will go up against Fleur East, Hamza Yassin and Molly Rainford.

Will Mellor just missed out on a place in the finale and was given the boot in the dramatic semi-final results show.

Speaking to Rylan Clark about his exit on spin-off show It Takes Two, Will said: "It was tough doing two dances. It was really tough.

"My brain struggles with one dance a week – my brain can't take in two things at once, and obviously it was the semi-finals, so it was tough.
