Strictly Come Dancing judge Shirley Ballas had viewers confused on Saturday night with her comment to Maisie Smith.

Maisie performed the Salsa with her partner Gorka Marquez, and received a fantastic critique overall from judges Shirley, Craig Revel Horwood, and stand-in judge Anton Du Beke.

Shirley told Maisie: "Well what a way to come back from the dreaded dance off to come out and put on a performance like this this week.

"I love the way you used feminine sensing zones that was beautiful, you're an accomplished dancer, absolutely no fear."

One viewer tweeted: "“Feminine Sensing Zones”… that’s an expression to get trending. What is Shirley talking about?! #strictly ".

"Can anyone explain what Shirley means by a Feminine Sensing Zone? #strictly," wondered another.

"What are "feminine sensing zones", Shirl? I cant even begin to work that one out. #strictly," asked a third.

A fourth remarked: "Did Shirley just say “feminine sensing zones”? What fresh hell? #Strictly ".

Shirley continued: "Keep working on your feet keep working on those lovely positions… It's getting better by the week.

"I thought that was absolutely brilliant," said Anton.

"You were so loose and fluid, and this is exactly what I was after.

"You are so brilliant but i feel like we are only scratching the surface, I feel like you have so much more to give.

"Come out here and dance like you do at rehearsals."

Craig remarked: "I think you are just incredible," though he mentioned a clumsy landing after Gorka lifted Maisie.

But he made a point of blaming Gorka, telling him he "overthrew" Maisie.
