'Strictly Come Dancing' Judge Craig Revel Horwood Calls 'X Factor' An 'Insult To One's Intelligence'

'Strictly Come Dancing' judge Craig Revel Horwood has slammed the 'X Factor', calling it "an insult to one's intelligence".

In an interview with Digital Spy he added: "I think people have just seen through the 'X Factor' format these days."

Praising the BBC show which he stars in, he said: "'Strictly' is family entertainment that all generations can watch at the same time. In an age when people only communicate with mobile phones and on the internet, we're a show that brings everyone together. 'Strictly' transcends all audiences."

'Strictly' has been dominating this year's Saturday night ratings battle and has even beaten 'The X Factor' on Sunday nights for the first time in the show's history.

Last week, former 'EastEnders' star Sid Owen was eliminated from the competition in a Halloween special.

The singer said she had her "fingers crossed" she would be up to full fitness to perform a salsa on this weekend's show with professional partner Pasha Kovalev.
