'Strictly Come Dancing' judge Craig Revel Horwood has urged hunky rugby contestant Gavin Henson to take ''as much off as possible'' during the live shows
Craig Revel Horwood thinks Gavin Henson needs to take "as much off as possible" during his performances.
The 'Strictly Come Dancing' judge has urged rugby hunk Gavin - who previously stripped down to his bare chest during salsa week on the show - to keep the audience interested in him by flashing even more flesh.
Craig said: "Take as much off as possible! He needs to do anything he can to get the audience on his side.
"It's something nice to look at and, if I was at home, I'd probably be looking, but as I'm a judge I've got to wave the dance flag."
He also added he thought Gavin is using the show to get over his split from singer Charlotte Church, who broke off their engagement earlier this summer.
Craig explained to new! magazine: "Undoubtedly. 'Strictly' is a brilliant way to get over someone you've been in love with because it occupies a lot of your time and keeps your mind off things. It gives you new experiences and it releases the famous happy endorphins in your brain, so it can only be a good thing."
He also said a little romance may help Gavin's moves, but warned he'd not about to find it with professional dancing partner Katya Virshilas, however.
He said: "I think a romance might help Gavin and Katya- it might improve his hip action!
"I think they've got great chemistry between them, they're wonderful. But unfortunately for Gavin, Katya has a boyfriend."
