Craig Revel Horwood has told professional dancers Ola and James Jordan to ''quit moaning'' about being axed from the 'Strictly Come Dancing' tour
Craig Revel Horwood has told Ola and James Jordan to "quit moaning" about being axed from the 'Strictly Come Dancing' tour.
The famously acid-tongued judge has slammed the professional dancers - who have appeared in every live tour so far - as "incredibly rude and selfish" for complaining about being replaced by fellow 'Strictly' star Katya Virshilas.
He said: "James needs to reel his head in. He's being incredibly selfish and rude moaning on twitter about not doing the tour.
"Not every dancer can do the tour. He needs to let other people have a chance. Katya has never done the tour before and she's coming this year. Why should Ola and James always get to do it and never Katya?
"My advice to them would be to quit moaning, reel your head in and get on with it. It's nothing personal."
Craig and James have been involved in a series of on-screen bust-ups - in which the judge told the dancer to "get a life" on one occasion when he was accused of marking him and partner Alex Jones down - and Craig admitted it was his decision to axe Ola and James from the tour.
He told The Sun newspaper: "It's hard being the tour director. I decide everything: the music, the costumes, the dances and, yes, the people taking part.
"We have to get it exactly right. The shows are a lot of fun but preparing them is hard work."
