Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Craig Revel Horwood says Kimberley Walsh can't win

Kimberley Walsh (Strictly Come Dancing 2012)

Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood has claimed Kimberley Walsh can't win the show.

The Girls Aloud star was in the bottom two last weekend, but avoided the danger zone last night.

However Craig reckons that the public hate the singer!

"The public hate her. Kimberley needs to go out on the street and start canvassing for votes," Craig told the Daily Mirror this week. "It's not the judges that hate her it's the public, it seems. You have to win the public vote to win Strictly. The judges only have 50 per cent of the vote.

"Ann Widdecombe knew how to canvass. She is a politician and that is why she went through the whole 10 weeks. Kimberley needs to get out on the streets and do the same if she wants to win."

Instead, Craig said that Lisa Riley would win this year's show, suggesting that favourite Denise Van Outen suffered the same lack of public support as Kimberley.

He said: "I think it is going to be the people's choice who will win but I think they will probably go for an underdog. Maybe it could be Lisa.

"This year Strictly has been phenomenal. We have had the most amazing cast ever. We have people who can really dance and we have had some surprises, like Lisa."


Strictly Come Dancing 2012 continues Saturday, 24th November at 18:30 with the latest Strictly results show on Sunday 25th November at 1925 on BBC One and BBC One HD.
