Strictly Come Dancing's Craig Revel Horwood: ‘Peter Andre Is Missing The It Factor’

Peter Andre might be a firm favourite with Strictly Come Dancing viewers, but it seems he’s still got a way to go before he fully impresses judge Craig Revel Horwood.

In fact, despite Peter being the bookies favourite to WIN, Craig reckons he should be worried about his place in the competition.

According to The Mirror, Craig told Woman magazine: “Sorry to say it but Peter’s becoming a bit of an also-ran in the competition.

“Technically, he’s very good but he needs to stand out from the crowd more.

“I’d be worried if I were him. He’s missing the ‘It’ factor – and I want to see him fly not fail.”

Peter’s been flying high on the leaderboard throughout the competition, but he dropped a few places with his rumba, which scored 29 points - a score which still seems ruddy fabulous to us.

Craig criticised the dance, suggesting Peter ‘lacked resistance and pressure through the floor’.

We’re not entirely sure what that means, but we’re not going to argue with arguably the harshest of Strictly judges.

Peter recently admitted that he (WAIT FOR IT) goes COMMANDO on the dancefloor, because the way the costumes are made make it ‘uncomfortable’ for him to wear anything underneath.

He explained: “I don’t wear pants when I’m dancing. The shirts are held in place with poppers, a bit like a leotard. If you wear boxer shorts with them, it’s uncomfortable - so I take them off.”

Good luck for Saturday, Peter!
