Strictly Judge Craig Revel Horwood 'worries' about Kaye Adams, one of the contestants in the upcoming series of the hit show. According to the TV star, it's all down to 'skimpy' outfits and 'sex appeal.'
Ahead of Strictly 2022 kicking off, it appears that at least one of those on the judging panel has a few words to say about the Strictly 2022 contestants.
The Strictly judges 2022 lineup features Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood, and Motsi Mabuse - while Bruno Tolioni has officially been replaced by Anton Du Beke. Not so surprisingly, Craig is living up to his reputation as the controversial one of the bunch.
Speaking to the Mirror (opens in new tab), Craig opened up about what he really thinks of this year's lineup, his concerns, and those he thinks are a shoo-in to win the Glitterball trophy this year.
"Kaye Adams I'm slightly concerned about!" said the Strictly judge. "I think she'll do quite well at the ballroom stuff, but I'm worried about the Latin. The sex appeal and the hip action and rhythm, things like the cha-cha-cha might prove... a challenge, darling."
"It's the selling yourself bare," he continued, "the costumes are all quite skimpy with the Latin."

It wasn't all negativity from Craig however, who discussed the ones he believes are likely to stand out from the crowd in the upcoming season of the hit dancing competition.
"Will Mellor is a good actor - I think he'll be able to act his way through it," said Craig. "He's got a great personality, he'll provide some funny moments."
The TV star added, "Kym Marsh has danced before and I think she'll fit in well...Jayde Adams I know a little about, but fingers crossed, she'll make us laugh!"
There's another one to watch, according to Craig, owing to her athletic prowess, which will lend itself heartily to the show's rigorous routines. "Ellie Simmonds is a powerhouse athlete - she'll throw her entire body into it. She's had to fight all her life - she'll bring that on the dance floor."
