But what will Craig think?

There’s BIG news for Strictly Come Dancing fans as the show could be set to make a surprising change to the judging panel.

With country still mourning the loss of Head Judge, Len Goodman after he decided to bow out following the Strictly Christmas Special, everyone’s talking about who’ll be sitting in his seat next year.

Well, we may not have to speculate any more as according to The Sun, it’s newest judge Darcey Bussell who’s set to take the top-spot.

The 47-year-old only joined the panel in 2012 after replacing former judge, Alesha Dixon, but apparently BBC bosses are keen for the ballerina to take over from Len.


Is Strictly Come Dancing’s Louise Redknapp preparing to celebrate some exciting baby news?

A source revealed: ‘The executives would like to see a female in the role, and Darcey has established herself as a major figure on the show.

‘They wouldn’t be comfortable bringing somebody in over her head. The job is quite a calm and level-headed one, for which Darcey would be perfect – and the viewers love her.’


Despite newbie Darcey’s promotion, it seems like original judges, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli aren’t too fussed about being pipped to the post.

The BBC insider also told The Sun: ‘Bruno and Craig have both made it clear they’re not looking for a promotion – and Darcey is extremely well thought of.

‘They’ll be more than happy to work with her and won’t kick up a fuss.’


They may have revealed who they want in the top-spot, but BBC bosses are keeping pretty schtum about who’ll be taking the fourth seat on the panel.

Ahead of this weeks big final, veteran professional, Anton du Beke and former Strictly dancers, Karen Hardy and Iain Waite are the favourites, but the TV show are yet to confirm.

Well, whoever it is, they’re going to have some pretty big dancing shoes to fill…
