Sheepish Max George has said sorry for turning the air blue on Saturday night's Strictly Come Dancing.

He dropped an F-bomb well before the watershed and made an apology from his dressing room after the show.

The Wanted singer, 32, got a bit carried away after finishing his American Smooth dance with Dianne Buswell.

He could be heard shouting "f*****g get in" as the pair received their feedback.

But it was picked up by the mic and Claudia Winkleman was forced to issue an apology over his bad language.

"I know we are down the bottom end of the leaderboard, but we enjoyed it," Max said.

"Apologies by the way if I let out a bad word – it was just in the moment.

"I don't know the details, I don't know if you heard. If you did, we're deeply sorry. Even if you didn't hear, we're still sorry."

Following the apology, viewers flocked to  Twitter  to find out what Max had said.

One tweeted: "DID MAX SAY "F***" ON BBC SATURDAY EVENING? I really hope so!! #strictly."

While another queried: "Claudia apologising for Max – at least she made it funny #Strictly."
