Watch: Tony Adams and partner Katya Jones 'row' on Strictly live show
The former England manager was very disappointed with his own performance after making multiple mistakes in his Salsa and struggling with some risky lifts, scoring just 21/40 from the judges.
But Adams, 56, and Jones, 33, could be seen having a heated discussion in the background, just after the video clip of their performance had been shown.
Jones had her back to camera, confronting Adams, who appeared to be demonstrating a move to her before shrugging and shaking his head, speaking rapidly.
Despite being bottom of the leader board, the pair yet again escaped the dance off and so have made it through to Week 8 of the celebrity dance contest.
Jones said on social media: "THANK YOU for voting us through to week 8!! We are beyond grateful ! And we hope you can see how hard we are trying ! So if want to see us dance another week, so we will keep doing so trying our best!
"@tonyadamsofficial impresses me every day! I’m just loving every single day teaching him to dance, seeing his improvement and growth! We are not here to play it safe cause life really begins at the end of your comfort zone! Let’s gooooo."
In Halloween Week the retired footballer said: "I've got to say to Shirley, I ain't got a clue, but I've got to apologise for my comment. I was out of order. Dont go home Shirley, because you are Strictly."
In Week Five the retired footballer and his performed a Cha-Cha-Cha to the Grandstand theme tune and he made multiple missteps.
But when Ballas held up her '4' paddle Adams was seen on camera bellowing: "Shirley! Go home!"
Paralympic swimmer Ellie Simmonds became the latest contestant to leave the show, after landing in the dance off against CBBC star Molly Rainford.
Simmonds and her partner Nikita Kuzmin had been joint fourth on the leader board with 33 points (including two nines).
