Some fans were left fuming after his slip-up, claiming that his language 'ruined' his dance and criticised him for swearing during the family-friendly show. While another fan penned: 'Did Max George swear at the end of his dance? And a third also saw the funny side, tweeting: 'Max George saying "f***ing get in" when he finished his elegant dance on prie time bbc tv brilliant.' Fury: But some fans were left fuming after his slip-up, claiming that his language 'ruined' his dance and criticised him for swearing during the family-friendly show Max's American Smooth performance only earned him 20 points from the judges and put them second from bottom in the leaderboard. Adorable: While Max was eagerly waiting for his judge's scores, Claudia surprised him with a sweet video message from his girlfriend Stacey Giggs However, like all friends, the lads have had their ups and downs, and in the 10 years since their last album Above the Noise, there have been times when fans wondered if they'd seen the last of Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd as a quartet. McFly were formed back in 2003, when Tom, having unsuccessfully auditioned for Busted, but helping to write their second album, A Present for Everyone, was asked by the record label to film auditions for a new band, V.
Their LP, Room on the 3rd Floor (named after where Jones and Fletcher wrote most of the songs - room 363 in the InterContinental Hotel in London), went double platinum, and McFly beat The Beatles' record for youngest band to have a No.1 debut album. Dougie won the 11th series of I'm a Celebrity, and Harry, who triumphed in Strictly Come Dancing, was invited to carry the torch for the 2012 London Olympics. Back in 2011, you may recall the lads were the subject of a Channel 5 documentary series, McFly on the Wall, which followed the band on their UK tour. McFly: All About Us brings their story up to the present day, as we see them take to the stage for a triumphant reunion gig at the O2, and prepare for the release of their first album in 10 years. Finally, the show ends with a special intimate gig at the Union Chapel in London in front of their families who have been a constant support through the years. When the announcement was made back in August, Richard Cowles, Director of Entertainment at ITV Studios said: "The Australian jungle is such an integral part of the show it was a big challenge to find a UK location where we could continue to deliver what viewers love about I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! "But Gwrych will definitely do that; the Castle sits in an amazing and atmospheric setting on a hillside overlooking the Irish Sea. While there will be plenty of changes required as we move from New South Wales in Australia to North Wales in the UK, we are really excited to see how we can adapt the format and make the Castle our new home for a very special 20th series of I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!" Just in time for the dark nights, and when we are all spending more time indoors and cooking, Nigella is back with her first BBC show in three years. The food writer and presenter, who, unbelievably, turned 60 at the beginning of the year, first stormed onto our screens way back in 1999 with Channel 4's Nigella Bites. As Xand, Raksha and John trace its tragic and rapid spread, week by week, they discover some extraordinary parallels between the 17th-century epidemic and the current pandemic, including how a form of 'lockdown' was used during the Great Plague, how cleaning methods in the 1660s may have been as effective as modern antibacterial sprays, and what Londoners used centuries before PPE was invented. It quickly built a cult following; viewers were wowed not only by the amazing efforts of a group of dedicated craftspeople to breathe new life into dilapidated family heirlooms, but also by the stories behind the items and the people who owned them. After three increasingly successful series, it was decided the show deserved a slot on BBC One where it's been ever since, airing in both a daytime and primetime slot to great acclaim. The show has made a star of some of its experts: host and 'foreman' Jay Blades also fronts episodes of upcycling show Money for Nothing and has made appearances on the likes of Would I Lie to You?, Celebrity MasterChef and Richard Osman's House of Games, while furniture restorer Will Kirk recently landed a regular gig on BBC One's Morning Live. In recent years Brand has gained a new following thanks to The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice, in which she and her guests chat about what happened in the most recent episode before speaking to the latest person to leave the tent. It's not the first TV series to be filmed there - the BBC's Animal Hospital, which ran for 10 years, was also based at the site. Richard Osman's House of Games Night (BBC1, 8.30pm) If it had flopped, that could have been something of a millstone, but luckily it proved to be a big hit with BBC2 viewers on tea-time week nights and even enjoyed something of a ratings boost during lockdown. For newcomers, the format of the BBC2 version sees Osman challenging celebs to take part in a variety of general knowledge-based challenges (which viewers can play along with at home, which might be why it proved to be a lockdown favourite).
