The acid-tongued judge has become famous over the years for not holding back when it comes to critiquing the celebrities on the ‘Strictly’ dance floor, but now at least Peter Andre can breathe a sigh of relief (for the time being…).

Speaking to The Sun ahead of this year’s live shows, Craig admitted: “I’ve only seen them dance the opening, and some people can and some people can’t.

“But I think Peter Andre has a very good chance of getting to the final.

“People love him, he’s extremely popular.”

As well as being bookies’ favourite to foxtrot away with the glitter-ball trophy, when we spoke to the contestants at this year’s ‘Strictly’ press launch, Peter’s name cropped up repeatedly when we asked who were the ones to watch.

However, the ‘Mysterious Girl’ singer has admitted he’s not altogether comfortable with the praise being heaped in his direction.

He told us: “That is the worst pressure anyone could have… you can’t stuff up once. That’s what’s scary.

“And that could all change once we actually start dancing, people will look and they’ll go that person’s good, that person’s alright...”

It wasn’t just Peter who Craig has tipped for ‘Strictly’ success, though, as he’s also named Iwan Thomas and Anthony Ogogo as potential candidates to triumph in the competition, because sportsmen tend not to take the judges’ comments to heart.

Craig added: “All athletes are great at not getting emotional about being criticised.

“They take the criticism and twist and turn it and use it to win the day.”

Meanwhile, Carol Kirkwood has confessed she doesn’t exactly fancy her chances of victory, claiming she’s “already resigned herself” to the fact she’ll be the first contestant out of the competition.
