'Strictly Come Dancing' Judge Craig Revel Horwood Hits Out At 'Tired' And 'Predictable' 'X Factor': 'People Are Sick Of It'

Craig Revel Horwood has launched an attack on ‘The X Factor’, after 'Strictly Come Dancing’, came out victorious in the first round of the annual ratings battle between the two shows.


While the ballroom judge admitted he is a fan of the rival show, which he watches on catch-up, he revealed he believes that the show’s “tired” format is the reason it is losing viewers.

Craig isn’t the only star who has been lambasting ‘X Factor’ in the press, as fellow BBC star Graham Norton has also said the show has “lost its credibility”.

The chat show host told Radio Times: "I haven’t watched 'X Factor' the past few years because it just seems so long now - it’s endless.

“Also, the people aren’t very good, so to all the judges’ comments of ‘I’d buy your album tomorrow’ you think, ‘You’re never having an album’. You wouldn’t throw 50p at them if they were busking in the tube. I think it’s lost it's credibility.”

‘The X Factor’ continues on Saturday (19 September) at 8pm on ITV.
