Vaughan - who is partnered with Australian dancer Natalie Lowe - has said that he is fed up with Bruno Tonioli, Len Goodman, Craig Revel Horwood and Darcey Bussell's negative comments.
'I don't put 20-odd hours in practising every week just to get to that final stage and [have] the judges... crucify you," the former England captain told Metro.
"I just want them to say all my hard work is paying off, that's what I'm after," he continued. "Darcey and Len said I'd improved last week and that's what it's all about. Every week you get a little better."
Last week, Vaughan scored 19 out of 30 for his cha cha cha, which put him and Lowe in the bottom two couples.
Tonight (October 26), the 37-year-old takes on the quickstep and said that he has been training hard in an effort to impress.
"I've trained harder in this week than I ever did in cricket because I've had to," he explained. "Hopefully I'll be in time. Hopefully I'll get off to a good start.
"I'm going to try to keep my posture upright," he added, "and I'll just hope my quickstep goes to sync."
Tonight's Strictly is Halloween-themed. Vaughan and Lowe have revealed that they are dancing to 'That Old Black Magic'.
The retired cricketer joked: "I'm a magician this week, so hopefully I can cast a spell on the judges."
Strictly Come Dancing airs tonight at 6.30pm, with the results show following at 7.20pm tomorrow.
