Craig Revel Horwood, a judge, has revealed what celebrity he would love to see in the ballroom.

Craig has served as a judge on the panel since 2004 and has seen many famous faces adorn the ballroom with their dancing moves.

Rather, he would love to see this particular character, who is also a razor-tongued judge from another well-known show, give a go to the Salsa or Samba!

Craig reveals how excited he was for the upcoming 20th episode of and which surprising celebrity contestant he would like to see on the dancefloor in an interview with What To Watch.

"I''m really looking forward to, as I do every year, because every time its different faces do different dances and telling different stories," he said.

"Id love to see judge Simon Cowell on the screen. He''s fantastic. He''s be accustomed to high-waisted trousers, but we may get him out of his black clothes, dress him in pink, and, of course, give him some sparkle.

Both are well-known for being aggressive critics on their respective shows, so how does Craig think thatll work out?

"As for my commenting on his dancing, Simon created harsh criticism, so he should be able to accept it," he joked.

Craig is swapping the ballroom for the living room as part of Channel 4''s special edition of programming to commemorate 50 years since the first Pride march in the United Kingdom.

While sharing the couch with his good friend, pianist Ben Goddard, Craig will join other LGBTQ+ personalities as well as series regulars.

"Im a huge fan of! When it first came out [in 2013], I thought why would anyone be interested in watching people watching TV? I thought it was ridiculous and then I was amazed!

"Because this is a special event to commemorate Pride, I wanted to do the show with one of my straight mates. Everyone knows Im opinionated, and I thought it would be really cool to bounce off Ben, as a heterosexual man, and ask for his insight on things!" he said.

On Friday, July 1 and 9pm Channel 4, there''s a Pride special.

On BBC, the show will be back in autumn.
