Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood, 55, who has been on the BBC competition's panel since 2004, has reportedly dished on the show's 2020 line-up. The Australian-British dancer is claimed to have suggested Olympian Nicola Adams is "punching above her weight".
His comments come as the Strictly judge discussed the show's contestants before the series has begun.
The BBC star also reportedly dished his thoughts on comedian Bill Bailey and The Wanted's Max George.
Craig is alleged to have said that the singer is going to shine but the comic may be a "disaster".
According to The Sun, the outspoken judge expressed his thoughts in a live online chat.

Asked about Olympic champ Nicola, 37, who will be part of Strictly’s first same-sex pairing, he said: “I think Nicola Adams will be punching above her weight, darling.
"But I am looking forward to seeing a same sex couple. That’s going to be cool.”
When quizzed about Bill, the Strictly judge reportedly said: “Terrible. I’m looking forward to the disasters!”
The choreographer then gave his backing to trained dancer Max, saying: “Oh yes, he’s going to be great.”
