Mark Holden’s bizarre Dancing With The Stars outburst

MARK Holden's clown routine on Dancing With The Stars was no laughing matter.

The "disaster on the dance floor", which featured Holden in a nightmare-inducing clown costume, was followed by a strange war of words between Holden and the ballroom dance competition's judging panel.

Kym Johnson said the dance was really scary, while Adam Garcia called it pedestrian because Holden essentially walked his way through the jazz routine to Madness' House of Fun.

Holden then quipped that Garcia "saved" Godfather III, referring to the common mix-up between the Coyote Ugly star and actor Andy Garcia.

"If I was conspiracy theorist Mark, I would think you're employed by the other networks instead of Channel 7," Todd McKenney said.

Things got so heated that host Dan MacPherson had to force Holden and his beleaguered dance partner Jessica Prince off the dance floor.

The four judges gave Holden four points out of a possible 40, a score not seen since the 2007 season.
