Speaking about potential candidates for the new series of the dancing show, Craig said on ITV's This Morning: "I was rather hoping for a same sex couple - I doubt that it'll happen this year...but my dream contestant would be Simon Cowell.

"And I'll happily - and I'll say this on national television - swap places darling. I'll go on X Factor if he comes on Strictly!"

Does Craig mean he'll apply as a contestant on X Factor? Or would he swap places to be a judge?

For now, Craig is staying put at Strictly, but he did address rumours that he could be set to replace Len Goodman is the US version, Dancing With The Stars.

Craig said: "Well wouldn't that be lovely darling! I'd be a multimillionaire! Well, I haven't received a contract as yet, but when I do I shall let you know. Will he retire? I don't know, I think he [Len] loves it so much. It's so much fun."
