Janette Manrara put her hands over Will Bayley's ears after Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood's incredibly harsh comment this evening.
The former Paralympian had a tough week after struggling with the dance due to his disability
Following their performance, Will looked considerably upset and Craig remarked that during his dance it looked like he was "losing the will to live".
After hearing this, Janette sprung to put her hands over his ears and later fiercely defended him while they were talking to Claudia Winkleman.
"You looked a bit sad," Claudia remarked. "It was such a tough week..."
"We tried so hard this week," he said. "I didn't want to let her down."
"You did not let me down!" Janette exclaimed. "He is the hardest person I've ever met on Strictly Come Dancing ."
The pair were awarded with four sixes for the dance, giving them a total of 24.
