With a new series underway and a whole new batch of celebrities vying for the coveted glitterball trophy, Craig gives us the lowdown on his tips for glory and disaaaaster, darling!
Abbey Clancy and Aljaž Skorjanec
Craig says: "Abbey and Aljaz are a fantastic combination – they look good together and they can dance. Abbey is great and is clearly one of the front runners. She loves a spray tan like me. We're all tan-tastic – if you're not orange, you're not Stricti-fied!"
Julien McDonald and Janette Manrara
Craig says: "Janette is the best out of the professional girls. She is a wicked dancer, she can do anything – jazz, tap, contemporary, ballroom."
Vanessa Feltz and James Jordan
Craig says: "James has had really good partners throughout the show so it's a learning curve for him and a challenge, it's doing him good. I'm not giving Vanessa a hard time. Vanessa is giving herself a hard time – I'm afraid it's not my fault she can't dance!"
Natalie Gumede and Artem Chigvintsev
Craig says: "She is a stand out. Natalie's very very good because her first dance number was a Latin and that is really difficult - you have to dance by yourself and also in time."
Patrick Robinson and Anya Garnis
Craig says: "Out of the guys, I really love Patrick. He has a great sense of rhythm and he could go a long way. He is one of the best boys."
Ben Cohen and Kristina Rihanoff
Craig says: "Ben is easy on the eye – pul-hease! – I am especially looking forward to when he gets down to his underwear. He's no stranger to it, put it that way; on every poster he's in a pair of Y fronts! Ashley Taylor Dawson's not bad looking either!"
Susanna Reid and Kevin Clifton
Craig says: "She has the perfect attitude for the show. She's up for a laugh, she loves the costumes, the glitz, the glam, the tan. She's loving it! That's the way to go about it – embrace it!"
