'Strictly Come Dancing': Craig Revel Horwood Accuses Judges Of Being Too Generous With Scores

'I have to be nit-picky – someone’s got to be.'

Throughout this year’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, viewers have been picking up on the fact judge Craig Revel Horwood is being rather on the stingy side when it comes to dishing out points.

However, he’s now hit back at this idea, insisting it’s actually the rest of the panel who are being overzealous when it comes to rating the contestants.

Craig also had a word of warning for this year’s ‘Strictly’ professionals, adding: “Some of the pro dancers are protecting their partners at the moment.

‘Strictly’ fans will recall the week in question, during which Craig gave Greg and Natalie just four points for their Rumba routine, with reports later claiming that the Olympic long-jumper kicked off backstage.

On Saturday night (19 November), the remaining seven contestants will perform live from Blackpool Tower, from 6.55pm on BBC One.
