Craig Revel Horwood: ‘Dermot O’Leary for Strictly!’

With Dermot O’Leary being replaced by Olly Murs and Caroline Flack on The X Factor, it looks like the departing presenter may have a future on Strictly Come Dancing…

According to the Daily Mirror, judge Craig Revel Horwood says he wants Dermot – who performed short dance routines at the beginning of each live X Factor show – to take part in the BBC1 celebrity dancing show.

“Now we can get Dermot,” says Craig, 50. “I’d love to see him dance on Strictly. I’ve heard that he might be quite good actually.”

With things being given a shake-up on The X Factor, could there be changes afoot on Strictly? Craig, who has been on the judging panel since the show started in 2004, says that if he got the chop he would take it in his stride.

“I wouldn’t be horribly upset,” he says. “I might get a much better paying job on ITV. Who knows?”
