'Strictly Come Dancing': Craig Revel Horwood 'To Replace Len Goodman As Head Judge'

There is one big sticking point, though...

Craig Revel Horwood is reportedly being lined up to replace Len Goodman as Head Judge on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. 

While Craig is already on the panel of the BBC ballroom show, The Mirror has claimed bosses want to see him step up, rather than have a new addition take over Len’s role.

Alesha also had her say on the matter, calling for the Beeb to keep the panel as it is, and make Craig the Head Judge.

Len has also backed Anton to replace him, telling the Kent and Sussex Courier: “It would be nice if Anton [Du Beke] or Karen Hardy took over... someone from the world of ballroom rather than stage or theatre dancing.”

The new series of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ launches on Saturday 3 September on BBC One.
