Craig Revel Horwood urges BBC to reveal Strictly Come Dancing voting figures

Craig Revel Horwood has implored the BBC to make the voting figures on "Strictly Come Dancing" public.

The 52-year-old TV judge has proposed the idea in the wake of accusations that the dancing competition is fixed by the broadcaster.

Craig explained: "I only wish they'd make the figures from the phone vote public, to stop talk of it being fixed. But if one celeb gets 13 million votes and another gets two, it might not go down well."

Craig also defended his outspoken nature on the popular programme, insisting he never intends to offend any of the celebrity contests.

Speaking to the Radio Times magazine, Craig shared: "I don't set out to be nasty, at the start of each season, we only find out who the celebs are an hour before the information is released to the press, and then I have to Google the names quick-smart because I don't know who they are.

"The celebs are willing to accept the money and they know what the gig is. The sportspeople on the show always take the criticism well. Actors are scared, afraid of failure."

Craig also acknowledged he would've been the wrong man to replace Len Goodman as the head judge on "Strictly", explaining he "would have had to be a smiley mediator, which isn't in my nature".

Shirley Ballas has been recruited as Len's replacement and Craig is a big fan of his new co-star.

He said: "She's a brilliant dance trainer, although she has been a TV judge only once or twice in America, just as a guest.

"I think she will be great because she has more knowledge than any of the other judges, including me, although telly requires more than that.

"Time will tell. It's very difficult being succinct, creating one-liners and soundbites. It would be tough for anyone. But she's funny and quick. And she finds me amusing."
