Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood next for the chop?

Well, that would be a turn up for the books!

These are worrying times for the stars of Strictly Come Dancing, with reports circulating that BBC bosses are keen to freshen things up for the new series.

Show stalwart Brendan Cole has already been shown the door, and there are whispers that other dancers could follow him out before the next run starts later this year.

But what about the judges? Well, Craig Revel Horwood is taking nothing for granted, and claims that NO ONE is safe from the axe. Not even him…

Along with Bruno Tonioli, Craig, 53, is the longest-serving judge on the show. Both have been on the panel since the beginning.

But as Brendan Cole discovered back in January when he was told his contract wasn’t being renewed, loyalty doesn’t guarantee anything.

And Strictly’s Mr Nasty insists that he needs to watch his back like everyone else.

He told The Daily Star: “Everyone is replaceable – everyone.

“They could get someone else to replace me. They wouldn’t be as good, though!

“I usually know around June. So it will be a month and a half before I know if I’m doing the next series.”

As well as reportedly wanting a bit of a shake-up among the regular cast, Strictly bosses will, of course, be busy booking celebrity dancers for the 2018 series.

And it was claimed this week that they’re hoping to get one of the SPICE GIRLS on the dancefloor this time around.

A source told The Sun: “Having a Spice Girl on this year’s show would be a huge coup for the show’s bosses.

“Having one of the Spice Girls taking part would be the cherry on the cake this year.”
