He might be known as Strictly Come Dancing's Mr Nasty, but Craig Revel Horwood has passed that label to another of the show's former stars after calling out James Jordan.
The BBC One show judge stuck up for this year's bookies' favourite Rose Ayling-Ellis, who former Strictly pro Jordan had called "average".
Revel Horwood said the comment was crazy and claiming Jordan was probably just after his job.
He told The Mirror: "No, she's not average at all. I mean, that's just crazy. She's absolutely wonderful and I think she's incredible and I think as a dancer she's heartfelt, she finishes her lines really, really well. I completely disagree with him."
The pair often clashed when Jordan was a dancer on Strictly and Revel Horwood added: "I think he's obviously just trying to make headlines and get a job as a judge. Oh my god, he's always wanted that. He's desperate for my job, but he'll never get it."
In a column for Hello! after musicals week on Strictly, it had actually been Jordan's wife Ola, also a former pro dancer for the show, who called Ayling-Ellis's dance "average", but then her husband had told her "I agree".
Revel Horwood also said that taking musicals week off from the show while he isolated after a positive COVID test had helped him to see what Strictly was like as a viewer.
Admitting that viewers were "more involved in the celebrity's story at home", he said that his job meant he didn't get to know contestants through their training videos and only watched the dances.
He said his new perspective had made him understand "why people vote for people like Dan", adding that while he was one of the weaker dancers, people were interested in his story and "you sort of invest in that".
