'Strictly Come Dancing' 2015: Peter Andre Tipped For Victory By Judge Craig Revel Horwood

Craig Revel Horwood has spoken, revealing which of this year’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ contestants that he thinks will go the distance.


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.

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.
