Dancing with the Stars judge Todd McKenney promises to tone down his ‘acid-tongued’ criticism on the upcoming All-Stars series
He’s best known for his savage commentary on the Dancing With The Stars judging panel.
However, it appears Todd McKenney may knock his ferocious way with words down a notch this season.
Speaking to TV Week, the 55-year-old said: ‘I haven’t dumbed myself down, but I’m trying to critique with more humour than acid.’

‘It would look really mean to these guys if I picked on them,’ Todd added.
Todd went on to reveal previous Dancing with the Stars contestants have less to worry about than the wildcards additions – Schapelle Corby, Matty ‘J’ Johnson, Renee Bargh and Jessica Gomes.
‘The four wildcards have the most work to do because they haven’t had all the experience the others had,’ he added.
