Craig Revel Horwood’s co-star claims he ‘wouldn’t give a 10’

Lorraine says Craig Revel Horwood was ‘out of order’ to Annabel

Craig Revel Horwood’s former Strictly Come Dancing co-star Brenda Cole has admitted he doesn’t think the stern judge would give out a score of 10 even if he knew the couple deserved it.

This year Craig has struggled to give any couple a 10, including Ellie Leach and Vito Coppola who were close to getting the perfect score of 40.

Many participants in the BBC dancing competition all strive to receive the perfect score and are often stopped from doing so by Craig and his unwillingness to give a 10.

Former Strictly professional dancer Brendan recently touched on the toughness of Craig and told Sky Bingo: “I think Craig [Revel Horwood] alluded to it on the results show, that Leyton’s [Williams] dance was a good dance and if it wasn’t an Argentine Tango, it would have been a great dance.

“But the fact of the matter is, it was an Argentine Tango, and an Argentine Tango needs several factors to make it amazing.

“Within the dance, there’s a softness, that alongside a certain tension between the couple performing it creates the dance.

“When those two aspects come together with fantastic choreography and the right beauty within the number, that’s what makes a number worthy of a 10.”

He added: “When the chemistry is right, the scene is perfect and a couple make you want to be in the number with them, that’s what makes dance magical to me.

“I don’t think Craig would give a 10 this early on even if it was the best performance he’d ever seen.”

This weekend the remaining celebrities will take to the famous Blackpool dancefloor, a huge milestone in the competition.

Ellie and Vito will be performing the Charleston to Love Machine by Girls Aloud, Angela Scanlon and Caros Gu will dance the Argentine Tango to Back To Black by Amy Winehouse while Layton Williams and Nikkita Kuzmin perform the Couple’s Choice to Ain’t No Other Man by Christina Aguilera.

Bobby Brazier and Dianne Buswell will Jive to Wake Me Up Before You Go Go by Wham!, Nigel Harman and Katya Jones perform the Quickstep to It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing) by Duke Ellington, Angela Rippon and Kai Widdrington take on the American Smooth to Tea for Two by Ella Fitzgerald, as well as Annabel Croft and Johannes Radebe to Unchained Melody by Benedetta Caretta.

Despite showing off her impressive skills, bookmakers have claimed Angela Rippon’s Strictly journey will come to an end this year.

With odds of 1/3 to be eliminated, the Spokesperson for William Hill, Lee Phelps, said: “Angela Rippon has already had her share of close shaves in the Ballroom after spending the past fortnight in the bottom two, but our market suggests it may finally be time for the presenter to face the music.

“Angela is 1/3 with us to depart Strictly this weekend – the lowest price we’ve had on any contestant to leave the show since the season commenced – making her the overwhelming favourite to be the eighth casualty of the series.

“Annabel Croft likewise failed to impress last week and is the second favourite at 3/1 to be eliminated on Sunday, with Angela Scanlon third on the list at 7/1.”

Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday from 6:40pm on BBC One, followed by the results on Sunday from 7:15pm on BBC One.
