Strictlys Craig Revel Horwood wants judge replaced to spice up flat panel

Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood wants Bruno Tonioli back on the BBC Strictly Come Dancing judging panel.

This comes after former pro dancer Anton du Beke stepped in to replace him on the hit celebrity dancing show.

Bruno has previously confirmed that he will make a return to Strictly at the Arena Tour next year.

A source told the Sun: “Craig feels the chemistry is a bit flat without Bruno.

“He brought some pizzazz and expertise to the panel.”

The other judges on the panel include Motsi Mabuse, sister of pro dancer Oti, as well as head judge Shirley Ballas, who formerly replaced Len Goodman from series 15.

When announcing his judging role, Anton said: "I think they're delighted as well because they know me.

"If somebody comes in from outside then it's sort of a whole starting again thing, but because it's me, we've already done it."

This comes after the news that Strictly's Katya Jones reportedly unleashed her fury behind the scenes of the BBC One show just moments before she and partner Adam Peaty were booted off the series.

The Russian pro dancer, 32, ranted about their low scores from the judges before officially getting kicked out of the all-dancing competition.

Katya and Olympic legend Adam, 26, were left in tears during their exit on Sunday.

A TV insider said: “Katya was absolutely furious during filming not just because the dance hadn’t gone as well as they hoped but by the low marks they received.

“Both Katya and Adam were in tears after a week in which they’d thrown their all into getting the routine right.

“And though it hadn’t gone perfectly, both of them were shocked at being at the bottom of the scoreboard and finding themselves in the dance-off after the public vote. So getting shown the door on Sunday was utterly devastating."

The source continued to The Sun: “Katya was emotional after their performance on Saturday and shed a few tears backstage as they’d worked so hard and put their all into it, so naturally they were gutted to not get a higher score.

Strictly continues on BBC One next Saturday at 6.40pm.
