Speaking at last night's launch show, Craig took a swipe and Nicky and his bandmates for their bland dance routines.
“He may bring a little bit of beauty and charm but can he move those legs? Westlife were only famous for sitting on stools," he quipped.
But Craig did praise the "fantastic" line up, revealing his favourite was Olympian Louis Smith, adding: “Gymnasts have fantastic rhythm.”
However it was Kimberley Walsh that Craig was tipping to win.
He said about the popstar turned West End performer earlier this week: “Kimberley Walsh at the top, I think she’ll win.
“Only because she’s danced before, and she’s foxy, shes hot, she’ll do very well.”
Despite Craig's comments about Nicky, the Westlife singer is currently a favourite with our readers.
At the time of writing, he's battling it out with Kimberley to top our first popularity poll of the series, so we doubt he'll be the first out!
