Strictly Come Dancing: Craig Revel Horwood was 'too soft' last year

Craig Revel Horwood thinks he was "too soft" on last year's 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 50-year-old star and judge of the celebrity dance contest has claimed he was too easy on contestants last year and is going to be much stricter on the current series.

Asked if he's mellowed after turning 50, Craig said: "No I haven't. Quite the opposite. I haven't mellowed at all. In fact I'm going to get more critical this year. I was too soft last year. I'm not going to be mean, just honest. I can't see any 10s being handed out at all. Not unless I see absolute perfection."

Craig has admitted, however, that he thinks this year's line-up is one of the best ever.

He shared: "I think it's really good. The characters are quite strong. There are some hotties in there, with the likes of Anthony Ogogo and Peter Andre - they're going to be going up against one another for the best Latin.

"It will be the battle of the testosterone and they'll be fighting over whose chest is bigger. They'll be at loggerheads, like two stags in a fight!"

And the choreographer - who is currently starring in the stage production of 'Annie' - is tipping former 'Coronation Street' actress Georgia May Foote to win.

He told the latest issue of Bella magazine: "My eye is definitely on Anthony and Georgia May Foote - she's done a lot of stage-school training so I think she'll be a good dancer. And she's gorgeous to look at. Peter should do well because he's likeable."
