Craig Revel Horwood claims he and his fellow judges are hoping Judy Murray will be voted off 'Strictly Come Dancing' this weekend
Craig Revel Horwood wants Judy Murray off 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The outspoken judge has blasted the 55-year-old hopeful for her lack of skills on the dancefloor and claims he and fellow panelists Darcey Bussell, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli are hoping her time on the show is cut short this weekend.
He told Now magazine: "We're all hoping that it's going to be Judy who leaves at the weekend.
"It is a dance competition after all and as a judge I have to wave a dance flag."
The 49-year-old judge believes Judy - who is the mother of tennis star Andy Murray - has stayed in the competition so long because of the popularity of her professional partner, Anton du Beke.
He added: "People are voting for Anton as opposed to Judy."
However, he is hopeful she doesn't have long left on the programme despite her popularity so far.
He said: "The audience eventually eliminate all the dead wood, so to speak."
Craig's fellow judge Len recently admitted he felt sorry for Anton because of his celebrity partners.
Speaking about whether he thinks Anton should've taken over as host when Sir Bruce Forsyth stepped down from the role earlier this year, Len said: "I think if they decide to change the format again I think Anton would be great. In the meantime, I just wish he'd get partnered with a hot young dancer.
"I mean, he's had Ann Widdecombe, Nancy Dell'Olio - and now Judy Murray!"
