The long-serving ‘Strictly’ judge has said he thinks Eamonn would even be one to watch on the show, as his recent double-hip operation could work to his advantage.
He was appearing on Tuesday’s (21 June) edition of ‘This Morning’, when he explained: “I start talking about ‘Strictly’ when I find out who's on it, so I can do a bit of research and formulate some sort of opinion on what they do for a living and how they may dance or react within the show.”
When Eamonn came up in the conversation, Craig added: “Because he's had a double hip replacement, [Eamonn] would actually be very good. My dancing was better after my hip operation because I wasn't in any pain and I wasn't limping anymore so I think he'd do rather well.
"Plus he has a very good attitude - Ruth has as well. And wouldn't it be great to have a husband and wife team on the show? It would be fantastic. But they'd be very competitive - the arguments at home... and then who they were going to get..."
The new series of ‘Strictly’ may be months away, but so far stars like ‘Downton Abbey’ actress Michelle Dockery, ‘I’m Outta Love’ singer Anastacia and Princess Diana’s former butler Paul Burrell have all been rumoured.
More recently, The Sun claimed that TV presenter Angelica Bell was the first contestant “confirmed” for the new series.
