Strictly Come Dancing 2013 judge Craig Revel Horwood wants Sharon Osbourne for this year's line up.

The ever critical dance panelist wants to poach Sharon, who is tipped to return to The X Factor this autumn.

Speaking to The Sun today, Craig said: "I’d like to have Sharon on the show. Simon stole Alesha Dixon so why couldn’t we steal Sharon from X Factor?

“It would definitely get people’s attention."

Former X Factor judge Sharon is widely tipped to be back on the show for its tenth series later in the year.

An insider claimed last week: “Simon is adamant Sharon will be back and they have been in serious talks for a while.

“She was a brilliant charge on the show from 2004 until 2007, and Simon knows the public love her no nonsense attitude, which is what the show that last year. He wants another battery on the panel for controversy.”

Meanwhile, Craig said if he couldn't get Sharon he'd love to get Prince Harry on the series.

"The other person I would love to see dancing on the show is Prince Harry — because he’s a real spark," he explained. “And it would be great to break down the barriers between royalty and normal people. It would be a long-shot, but Strictly is famous for long-shots.

"People who you think would never consider it sign up. So you never know — Prince Harry could be the big announcement lined up for our tenth year."
