McFly's Harry Judd, Jason Donovan and footballer Robbie Savage were all criticised by the judges last night for their lack of on-stage romance with their pro partners.
Judd picked up 33 points for his samba, but was told by guest judge Jennifer Grey that he needed to "let go a little more".
Judge Bruno Tonioli even offered the popstar "private lessons" as he was told he needed to lose his fear and "go for it" with pro Aliona Vilani.
Jason Donovan slipped down to the bottom half of the leaderboard for the first time this series as his rumba fell flat with the panel.
"I want to feel more lust and attention for your gorgeous partner," claimed Grey.
Craig Revel Horwood claimed that it was "a little bit too serious and earnest" and added: "It did expose you."
Alesha Dixon and Tonioli said that they were "bored" by the routine and that it looked "contrived".
Host Bruce Forsyth joked that Donovan would have to be careful about being more intimate with pro Kristina Rihanoff as her boyfriend is former boxer Joe Calzaghe.
Meanwhile, Robbie Savage was also criticised for being "devoid of emotion" in his waltz with Ola Jordan.
The former Welsh footballer was told he needed to "loosen up and connect with this beautiful sexy female".
Savage and Jordan scored 29 for their ballroom routine.
