TV judge says contestant Denise will lose because of her professional dance training

Craig Revel Horwood believes that Denise Van Outen is unlikely to win this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

The TV panellist, 47, thinks the public aren’t backing Denise.

‘I love Denise. I think she is our best all-rounder in the competition but the audience are just not voting for her,’ Craig explains to the Daily Star.

‘Why? Maybe they think she is just too good and they would prefer an underdog to win.

‘She needs to get out there this week and canvasf for votes like a politician.’

Denise, 38, has revealed that she plans to give up dancing once the show ends.

The problem with dancing with as someone as talented as James Jordan is that nobody else will be as good as a partner,’ Denise tells The Sun.

‘So I don’t really want to carry on dancing after the show finishes.’
