Strictly Come Dancing 2013 judge Craig Revel Horwood has said he finds Sophie Ellis-Bexter "awkward"

Speaking about Saturday's performances, Craig claimed that Sophie's Salsa with Brendan Cole felt "a little awkward".

And the ever critical panelist said that even top scorer Natalie Gumede needed some more work, saying her performance could've used "some more hip action".

Talking on It Takes Two, Craig also praised Dave Myers, despite the low scores from the judges.

"I can understand the audience, the people at home must be loving it, but I've got to judge from a dance perspective and it was very stompy, clumsy...," he said.

Ashley Taylor-Dawson found himself in Craig's good books after Saturday too, but for perhaps the right reasons.

Craig revealed: "I really like his energy, he threw himself into the dance, he had no inhibitions and that's what made it great"

He added: "He's doing really, really, well."

Meanwhile, Craig admitted he'd miss warring with Vanessa Feltz after the telly host was voted off in Sunday's results show.

"We're always sad to see people go, Vanessa was always quite verbal which I appreciated, so we will miss her terribly."
