STRICTLY star Michelle Visage has hit back at James Jordan after he claimed she "fake cried" following her departure from the BBC show.
The 51-year-old and partner Giovanni Pernice, 29, found themselves in the bottom two alongside vlogger Saffron Barker, 19, and AJ Pritchard, 25.
And it appears it all got a little too much for Michelle, who broke down in tears on the show.
Former professional dancer James took to Twitter to slam Michelle's public meltdown, insisting it was "'fake tears."
However, Michelle hit back, saying, "That's deplorable. Gross" – before telling him: "Also James, you should @ people when you talk about them! That's all."
The RuPaul Drag Race star also reposted a tweet that read: "The fake tears comment was awful. You didn't say the same about Emma when she was talking about her grandparents a couple of wks ago, or Saffron last night. And the 'her' community comment? Nasty, not opinionated. I'm out."
James, who left the BBC show in 2014, later claimed he was being "trolled" by Michelle's fans.
He added: "I love the fact I’m being trolled by @michellevisage for my honest opinions on Twitter and never once “@“ her in any tweet Didn’t realise I wasn’t allowed my own opinion on my own account Think she’s still upset “her” community didn’t save her. Don’t blame me."
Michelle was devastated to be given the boot following a lacklustre performance on Saturday.
Following her departure, she ignored fans waiting outside the ballroom and headed to the after-party before being the first celeb to leave the seaside town.
A TV source said: “Michelle felt like getting voted out was the final insult after getting the sense she wasn’t welcomed as much as the other stars.
“She wasn’t included on the line-up for next year’s Strictly Come Dancing tour — a snub she took personally.
“She had also been having difficulties with Giovanni.” The Sun had already reported the pair, in the bottom two last week, had been having backstage rows.
The stars “couple’s choice” dance to Madonna’s Vogue only managed to score 32 points.
