Strictly Come Dancing Judge Wants Prince Harry For Ballroom Show

Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood wants Prince Harry to strut his stuff on the ballroom show.

The dancer and choreographer said the show, which was won last year by McFly drummer Harry Judd, needed a broader range of contestants.

He said: "I would like royalty up there, I'd like Prince Harry to show us his Cha-cha-cha, or someone like Sharon Osbourne would be fun.

"Maybe a fashion designer or an architect or a lawyer, someone who is at the top of their game, rather than just someone else from EastEnders or Holby City".

Revel Horwood has recently seen the other side of a talent show - triumphing over mathematician Marcus du Sautoy in the final of the celebrity conducting challenge Maestro at the Opera - and said he does not intend to drop the baton now the show is over.

The Australian-born star plans to return to the Royal Opera House, where the show finale was filmed, in his own time to conduct trios and quartets this summer.
