STRICTLY staff are dreading the return of EastEnders actress Nina Wadia after she slammed the show following her exit, according to reports.
The 52-year-old was the first celeb to be eliminated back in week two, and claimed she'd been hard done by from the judges' scoring.
She described their marking as "shocking" and said the overall experience was "odd".
Ahead of Saturday night's final which will see past contestants return, one inside told the Mirror: “It’s left a very sour taste in the mouth.”
Another complained Nina “moaned all the time” and added: “She is coming back for the final, which we are slightly dreading.”
Nina lost out in the dance off to former Corrie star Katie McGlynn.
After her exit, she said: "Coming out of Strictly was a big shock because: A, I wasn’t expecting it to happen the way it happened, and it happened very quickly and it was all very surreal for me and when I came out I was very down.
"My mental health, I’ve got to tell, I was down. That was from a lot of different feelings.
"There was a feeling of embarrassment coming out as early as I did, there was a feeling of did I let people down, did I let myself down."
Speaking to The Lads Dads and a Couple of Beers podcast, she continued: "All these questions going on in my head and then the people reaction at the back of it, to say well no.. you shouldn’t have come out you were robbed, and I'm like I needed that!
"I needed that kind of almost validation to think I wasn’t going crazy, I didn’t think I was that bad. Then you realise 'OK hang on, I need to separate a reality show from what is actually real life'. Reality shows are so the opposite of reality."

She also slammed the 'shocking and horrible' judges’ scoring.
Nina said she was stunned when Craig Revel Horwood gave double the points to Loose Women star Judi Love, despite saying her dancing was “a technical disaster."
She said: “If you have a competition, have a level playing field. Give everybody a chance, or if not that, then at least mark accordingly.
“You can’t give someone like me a three when I’ve tried so hard and tried something so technically difficult, then at the same time give someone else who’s had a bit of a mistake a seven just because they looked good doing it.
“I don’t understand the marking system at all. I don’t think the marking system makes any sense. I thought, ‘OK, this is only week two, you know, you make a little mistake, you’re only human’.
“The way it was marked down, it was shocking, actually shocking.
“It’s such an odd experience where you get thrown into a world you’re not used to, with the make-up and hair and clothes and the over-the-top stuff.
