Judge wants Strictly Come Dancing co-stars to shut up and let him speak

Craig Revel Horwood has criticised his fellow Strictly Come Dancing judges for constantly trying to talk over him on the show.

The dancer says he is fed up with Alesha Dixon and Bruno Tonioli trying to steal the limelight.

‘I would like to slap them both,’ he admits ‘That’s my intention come this weekend. If they start rabbiting on I am going to put a stop to that.

‘They both try and out-talk me despite the fact I am only given 10 seconds to speak.’

Craig is also cross with Justin Lee Collins for suggesting 81-year-old Strictly host Bruce Forsyth should give up television.

Justin presented Strictly spin-off show Strictly Come Dancing On Three in 2004.

‘He is stupid,’ Craig tells the Daily Mirror. ‘Bruce is iconic.

‘He is a national hero and I want him up there forever.’
