Revel Horwood's Strictly favourites

Craig Revel Horwood wants Darcey Bussell to fill the Strictly Come Dancing hot seat.

The Aussie judge said the ballet star would be an ideal replacement for Alesha Dixon following her move to Britain's Got Talent, The Sun reported.

"She's very credible, has done the show before and she'd love to do it. I'd really like to see her on the panel," the straight-talking judge said.

Craig, who will attempt to conduct an opera on BBC Two show Maestro, also had warm words for Karen Bruce, saying she's "well thought of".

The Strictly choreographer is also said to be in the running for the job.

Craig said of his conducting challenge: "Everyone at Strictly will be following my every move, hoping I go wrong. But winning matters a lot to me."
