James Jordan has said Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood should be axed as a judge on the show.

"If Craig was gone they wouldn't notice any difference at all. The viewers wouldn't miss him either. No-one would miss him."

Speaking about Len Goodman's exit from the show as head judge, James added: "Len was a much bigger personality than Craig and the show is still huge without him. So it would still be a big success."

It comes after Craig was left mortified during last night's show when it mistook Anton Du Beke's teeth as fake.

The confusion arose when Anton danced the salsa with his partner, EastEnders' Emma Barton in an Austin Powers costume.

The Movie Week routine went down well, but Craig - already taken aback by Anton's Austin Powers wig - couldn't get over his outfit.

During his critique, he said: "I was slightly distracted by the wig, I have to say, and the fake teeth that you have in."

The show doesn't need Craig. He should go.

Host Tess Daly said: "They're not fake!"

"They're not fake by the way, they're all my own dear," Anton added.

Tess then clarified that they were, in fact, Anton's own teeth.

Craig lifted his hand to his mouth and asked in embarrassment: "They're not fake?!"

Another wrote: "Quite possibly my favourite TV moment of 2019 so far."

A third added: "All-time classic episode of #Strictly: Kelvin, Dev, Emma, & Michelle on the dancefloor, Katya’s trip & Craig’s teeth comment off the dance floor, perfect Saturday night TV."
