Craig Revel Horwood vows to be tough with Strictly Come Dancing celebs

Craig Revel Horwood

Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood has vowed to go much tougher on the celebrity dancers on this year's show. With the BBC One dancing competition back in just over a month's time, the critical judge added he's planning to out-do his fellow panellists.

Speaking to buzz magazine this week, he laughed: "I'm cracking the whip this year."

The 46-year-old continued: "I think we've gone soft on the celebrities and I’m upping the ante."

And the Aussie dancer said he had a few tricks planned to make sure that this year would see him become the show's top judge!

"Last year Bruno was trying to steal the show as the most outrageous judge, but I've got a few outrageous tricks up my sleeve," he blabbed to the magazine.

You've been warned, Bruno!

Strictly Come Dancing kicks off with a preview show at the end of September.

Stars lined up for the new series include The One Show host Alex Jones, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire presenter Chris Tarrant and West End star Jason Donovan.

In a twist to the format, this year's show will also feature dances in front of 6,000 fans live from Wembley, as well as a final from Blackpool Tower filmed in 3D!
