The BBC's Strictly Come Dancing judge has gone too far this time!

Enough’s enough. It’s time to hold up a paddle with a big, fat zero on to Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood and his vile comments.

Why? Because he’s dissed Daybreak‘s showbiz editor Richard Arnold before Dickie’s even had a chance to cha cha across the dancefloor!

I think Richard Arnold is going to be absolutely dreadful,’ Craig hissed this week. It’s only because of his campness that I say that. Also he’s an ITV presenter!’

I’ve been close friends with Richard Arnold for years, and although the only time I’ve seen him waltz is straight to the bar for a bottle of wine or three, I guarantee he won’t be dreadful!

Richard Arnold‘s already got a winning formula for Strictly. Dickie has a sharp and sometimes scathing sense of humour which will give Judge Dread Craig Revel Horwood a run for his money and keep the BBC1 audience howling. 

Then there’s his secret weapon – advice from Daybreak colleagues Aled Jones (who came a respectable 4th in series 2) and Kate Garraway, who was famously flung around the studio by poor Anton Du Beke!

And finally, he has hips that will make the Rumba the raunchiest yet. At least, that’s the gossip going round the ITV canteen since the last Christmas party!
