During the latest double elimination, Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig, 56, was the first to be revealed leaving his co-star and show judge Oti elated.

Oti was the only judge to guess correctly Craig was Knickerbocker Glory while the rest of the panel – Jonathan Ross, Mo Gilligan, Davina and guest John Bishop – wrongly predicted Rylan Clark-Neal, Jason Donovan and Paul O’Grady.

Due to Oti and Craig working together on Strictly, she as a pro and he as a judge, the dancer was able to suss out his particular walk, saying: ‘It’s that walk you have, I was like: “Oh!”

‘It was just that moment, I was like I’ve seen this person walk away before… then all the pieces started coming in.’

Talking after the big reveal, Craig joked that it was ‘torture, darling’, he continued: ‘I don’t dance generally. I try sitting behind the desk, like you lot. When you’ve got a head on you, you don’t see anything.

‘It was a whole other experience, so pleased I did this, it’s good for me as a judge, darling, a mean and harsh one, to actually come up and challenge myself.

‘I was extremely nervous, I really feel for the celebrities [on Strictly] … not that I will change any of my opinions, I do feel for them as it’s terrifying.’

Talking about his reason to take part, Craig said: ‘To prove myself that I have the guts to do something like this, takes me back to being 23, that whole experience again!’
