The Strictly Come Dancing judges hope that they could get Simon Cowell on the show soon.

With Xtra Factor's Caroline Flack having jumped ship to join the BBC One series, Strictly's Craig Revel Horwood thinks it's now only a matter of time before Simon follows.

He said of Caroline's Strictly signing: “Coming over from The X Factor is one in the eye for Simon Cowell.

“She’s got a great laugh. I think she’ll lead the way in the exodus over to Strictly.”

Craig joked: “It’ll be ‘sequined Simon’ next!”

In a new interview with Woman magazine, Craig praised this year's much younger line up of celebs... and the hunky male eye candy!

“Mark will bring a reem team of new fans to the show," Craig said of the TOWIE star, “He’s the heart-throb of the series, and will go down a storm backstage with the ladies.

“His fiancée Michelle Keegan might need to put him on a leash!”

But it's not just Mark with rugby star Thom Evans also on the line up: “Thom’s the big hunk of the competition, and there’s going to be some serious rivalry with Mark.

“It’s going to be pec-tastic!

“But he also brings some public school charm, I think he’s going to be our very own Mr Darcy of the dance floor.”

Strictly starts this Sunday night at 8PM on BBC One.
