Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Craig Revel Horwood would love to quit

Craig Revel Horwood (Strictly 2012)

Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood has confessed he would love to quit the show!

Speaking to the Daily Star Sunday today, the Strictly star revealed he saw his part on the BBC One series as his "Saturday job".

"My real job is ­choreographing and ­directing – Strictly is my Saturday job," Craig told the newspaper. “So I wouldn’t mind not judging at all. They can get rid of me if they want. I wouldn’t mind taking a year off from being a judge."

Fortunately for fans of Craig, the BBC aren't threatening to axe him just yet, so we imagine he'll be back on our screens next year!

In the interview with the tabloid, Craig also revealed he hoped Darcey Bussell would be back for another series.

"What’s great about the panel now is that every single person on it has ­devoted their life to dance," Craig said, taking a swipe at Alesha Dixon.

He added: “There are no gimmicks any more.

"We’ve all been passionate about dance our whole lives and that’s what qualifies us to be ­judges. Darcey is just fantastic.”
