DWTS: Mark Holden gagged and shirtless for 'Vladimir Putin dance'
Mark Holden has one-upped his Dancing With the Stars controversial clown performance with a weird "Vladimir-Putin-meets-Bert-Newton" shirtless performance. If that wasn't bizarre enough, he then gets gagged!

It's safe to say Dancing With The Stars judge Todd McKenney and recently eliminated contestant Mark Holden won't be sharing a beer anytime soon.

Todd has now accused the former Australian Idol judge of "hijacking" the Seven show with his colourful rants and outrageous routines as a clown and Vladimir Putin.

"It was awful to watch, and it was an awful feeling backstage, I'm just glad he is gone," Todd told Sydney Confidential. "The whole thing was just odd. It was more the banter afterwards that was just bizarre and not family friendly.

"We have all played the game the past 10 years, you can skate on thin ice a little bit with humour on the show, but it's still in the realm of family entertainment. He broke through the ice in my opinion."

He also death-stared Todd into oblivion at the end of his final routine... watch above!

Earlier this week, Mark claimed Todd had a "vendetta" against him and told AAP "he's afraid I am going to take over his job". Uhh, not on the Seven Network's watch!

And Todd wasn't too pleased to see his name cropping up in the 60-year-old barrister's interviews.

"I kept reading this diatribe about myself," the 49-year-old said. "I met him once, I shook his hand before the first show and that was that.

"I kept reading every day that I had it in for him. I didn't have it in for him until he kept doing all that."

Would Feuding with the Stars be a more appropriate title, FIXers?

Here's that creepy clown outburst one more time... still scares the living daylights out of us.
