Fans tweet their anger after last night's Dancing with the Stars Ireland

Dancing with the Stars Ireland fans took to Twitter last night to hit back at the judges over Johnny Ward’s low score.

The Love/Hate actor took on a quick step with new partner Ksenia for switch-up week and earned 19 points - a score that fans thought was too low for his impressive moves.

Both Lorraine Barry and Brian Redmond on the judging panel commented that the swing and slow sections of the dance weren't up to par.

It was a lovely quickstep but I want to see the slow

Fans of Johnny tweeted their disgust and believe that since the series started he has been continuously ‘undermarked’.

The star also took to the platform after the live shows to thank his fans and admitted that he was “very down” after receiving the scores.
