Strictly Come Dancing 2014 contestants: Craig Revel Horwood gives his verdict!

Craig Revel Horwood (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood has given his very honest opinion on this year's celebs.

Tonight will see all fifteen stars dance live for the second time while Sunday night will see the first elimination of the series.

After the launch show and the first week of performances, Craig has already got some strong opinions on this year's crop of stars.

"Pixie Lott's very good," he says.

"Anton Du Beke's got his hands fill with Judy Murray. She seems to have no co-ordination. She went left when everyone else went right. She has no clue what she's doing."

Craig went on: "Mark Wright could be a dark horse.

"He's got Karen Hauer as partner, and she doesn't stand for any nonsense. She's really a master of dance, and will whip him into shape."

On Thom Evans and his pro partner Iveta, Craig added: "[They] Get on extremely well. The better they get on, the better the dancing will be. If they can fake attraction, fabulous. "

Meanwhile, speaking to Star magazine this week, Craig revealed that X Factor's SIMON COWELL is his ideal guest judge for Strictly.

"He seems to know everything about everything, doesn't he?" Craig quipped.

Strictly Come Dancing airs tonight from 6:20PM on BBC One.
