Craig thinks viewers have had enough of being duped

Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood, 47, has launched a scathing attack on rival show The X Factor, saying: ‘It’s taking people for a ride. People have had enough.’

It comes as Strictly’s been trouncing The X Factor in the ratings war, getting two million more viewers on 5 October – its biggest lead in six years.

Speaking at Kelly Brook’s Forever Crazy show, Craig said: ‘No wonder The X Factor ratings are lower.

‘I’m not surprised. Viewers can see right through the show. They’re not stupid.’
