BBC Breakfast Dan, 44, has surprised many by getting this deep into the competition.
And now Craig has taken a sly dig at the star.
What did Craig Revel Horwood say about Dan on Strictly Come Dancing?
Speaking to Fubar Radio, he was asked who he thought was going to win the competition.
He said: “I just don’t know what the outcome’s going to be. I love Rose, I love AJ, I love John and Johannes.”
He then chuckled and said: “I even love Dan.”
Craig added: “I know that Dan is loved by every housewife in the UK.
“He has the full support of them which is fantastic and that’s why the audience get 50 per cent of the vote.”
Dan still stays in
In last week’s live show, Craig scored Dan a six.
However, even though he received relatively low scores across the board, Dan survived the dance-off.
Instead, it was Tilly Ramsay who left the show.
Some viewers thought this was a “fix”, and Dan soon responded to the accusations.
“Thank you to everyone who is sending lovely messages and enjoying us having fun on #Strictly,” he wrote on social media.
“And to the few who say ‘just leave’, ‘Aren’t you ashamed?’, ‘You’re a disgrace’, ‘It’s a fix’ (which I don’t get), or ‘Who is voting for them?’… IT’S A TV SHOW!”
What else did Craig say about Strictly?
During his interview with Fubar, Craig also called for the introduction of transgender contestants.
“We could go down the transgender route,” he said.
“I think dance is a platform for anybody no matter who you are or where you’re from.
“Humans have been dancing since the cave men were dancing around fires for fertility and rain.
“We’re social, we like dancing, we like celebrating and I think it’s time to do that.”
