Peter Andre has been tipped by judge Craig Revel Horwood to win 'Strictly Come Dancing' this year
Peter Andre has been tipped to win 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 42-year-old singer has been paired with professional dancer Janette Manrara on the show and judge Craig Revel Horwood believes his huge fan base will help him to take home the glitterball trophy.
Craig told the Daily Star: "I've only seen them dance the opening, and some people can and some people can't.
"But I think Peter Andre has a very good chance of getting to the final. People love him, he's extremely popular."
It was recently claimed that Ola Jordan had a "massive meltdown" when she found out she wouldn't be partnering Peter on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 32-year-old beauty was reportedly left fuming after the BBC One show's bosses snubbed her first choice in favour of Olympic athlete Iwan Thomas.
A source said: "Ola had a massive meltdown. She was ranting and raving as she genuinely thought they'd win.
"To make it worse, Iwan is based miles away and she doesn't even like him."
The news isn't likely to please the 'Mysterious Girl' hitmaker either as he previously admitted he had joked to Ola about only doing 'Strictly' if she was his partner.
He said: "I've met her many times in the past and we always joked for years, it's been going on for years, where I said 'I'll only ever do 'Strictly' if you're my partner.'
"Because she kept saying, 'When are you gonna come on the show, when are you gonna do it?'"
