Strictly Come Dancing 2014: Craig Revel Horwood blasts Judy Murray!

Judy Murray

Strictly Come Dancing 2014 hasn't even begun yet but acid tongued Craig Revel Horwood is already picking on the contestants.

And ahead of Friday night's first live show, Craig has predicted that Judy Murray - who is partnered with Anton Du Beke - with be strictly disastrous on the dancefloor.

Speaking on ITV's Loose Women yesterday Craig claimed that, as a coach, Judy would take direction well.

"Anton is the perfect person for Judy. I have only seen 30 seconds of her dancing and that was enough. I think Anton really has his work cut out," he said.

Craig explained: "Generally sports people get on very well because they are used to criticism.

"When you're a sports person, your coach is always telling you what's wrong, not what's right, so you can improve it, and that's basically my job on the panel.

"Now if she can't get used to hearing the truth about her dancing then she's going to have to rethink the entire programme."

Judy herself seemingly agrees with Craig, telling the Radio Times this week that she's found it difficult to go from the teacher to the student.

She admitted: “A few have tried in the past but I’m not good at being told what to do!”
