THE GOSSIP: Along with Len and Bruno, Craig Revel Horwood has been a staple of the show since it first aired in 2004. But now The Daily Star is suggesting that the Strictly judge – whose witty and withering put-downs both delight and divide the nation – is threatening to walk out.
CRAIG SAYS: “I wouldn’t mind not judging at all. They can get rid of me if they want. I wouldn’t mind taking a year off from being a judge.”
RADIOTIMES.COM VERDICT: 2/5. There is no denying that the man himself uttered those words, but while a well-deserved holiday is one thing – actually leave Strictly? We just can’t image Craig letting the show go on without him…
