'Strictly Come Dancing' judge Craig Revel Horwood thinks Alesha Dixon is better on ITV's 'Britain's Got Talent' than the BBC dance show
Craig Revel Horwood believes Alesha Dixon is better "suited" to 'Britain's Got Talent' than 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 'Strictly' judge - who this year will be joined by Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Alesha's replacement Darcey Bussell on the panel - thinks the 33-year-old singer was the perfect addition to the ITV show because she can "comment" more on singing and acting than dancing.
He said: "I think Alesha has fitted in to 'Britain's Got Talent' brilliantly and it suits her more than 'Strictly'.
"I think I prefer her on there - it's more her and she can comment on the singing and acting."
Craig - who is renowned for his bitchy comments on the BBC show hosted by Sir Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly - is excited to welcome ballet dancer Darcey onto the series.
According to the Daily Star, he added: "I think she is going to be fantastic."
Tess has also backed Darcey as a judge, saying she brings "credibility" to the panel.
She said: "I think she's certainly a credible judge, given that she is a professional dancer.
"She's been at the top for years. She's a bit of a legend in the dance world.
"I think her credibility and expertise will lend itself really well to the panel."
