Strictly Come Dancing: Craig Revel Horwood claims public hate Kimberley Walsh!

Craig Revel Horwood (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood has claimed that the public hate Kimberley Walsh.

Girls Aloud star Kimberley found herself in the bottom two last weekend, despite earning her highest score of the series.

And with 34 points placing her second on the leaderboard, Kimberley must've had very few phone voters for her to have ended up in the danger zone.

Speaking to the Daily Star ahead of tonight's latest live show, Craig said: “Kimberley Walsh needs to get out on the street and canvass. The public hate her. It seems that way. It’s a ­disaster.

“It’s not the judges that hate her. She dances well.”

Craig said she should take tips from Ann Widdecombe, who stayed in the show for weeks despite a lack of points from the judges!

He told the tabloid: “Ann Widdecombe is a politician who knows how to canvass for votes. Kimberley needs to go out on the streets and do that.”

Kimberley admitted this week that she needed to come out fighting at Wembley tonight.

She said: "After last week I feel like I really need to go for it and make sure everybody realises how much I want to stay in this competition."
