The strict judge Craig Revel Horwood has appointed the three celebrities this year, as “held” should be in the final.
It has been an incredibly close series this year, with more participants than ever before getting a top score of 40.
And with the quarterfinals approaching this weekend, Craig has his eye on a few stars who he believes deserve to be in the fight for Glitterball.
In a speech to the Mirror, he says: “For me, it should be John and Johannes out of all those left who should be in the final because they have been consistent throughout. I think Rose and Giovanni because they” has been consistently good for all forms of dance. AJ I think is amazing.
“I think I can definitely see the three celebrities in the final – from a professional point of view it’s completely up to the public if they are loved at home. They have all been really good. It’s clear that AJ had a tough time. week when she had to do Paso Doble, but she excelled in something like Charleston, which is just amazing.

“You just do not know where their strengths and weaknesses will be, they have not made every dance yet.”
However, he says that after missing his first Strictly show ever in November, Craig says he now understands why people vote for ‘underdog’ Dan Walker.
“You’re more involved in the celebrity’s story at home,” he says. “While at work I’m not so influenced by the VTs or anything, because I’m just there to judge the 1min 30 dance and not the story itself that surrounds it. Whereas when I was sitting at home, you do.

“And then I can see why people vote for people like Dan. That’s interesting, isn’t it? Because he’s probably one of the weaker dancers out of everyone left in this program, but you still feel for him.
“So you invest in it, so to speak. It’s a completely different kind of experience, so I now understand why the audience gets 50% of the votes. I’m just there to hold and wave the dance flag professionally, but then people are at home. , they have invested in man himself and their history and journey through it.
“So I think it sways them, and I think that’s why it is good that the public has 50% of power.”
Away from the Strictly world, Craig has been focused on the land of the nods with Dreams for his new Sleep Like Log campaign.
The survey found that a quarter (25 per cent) of the 2,000 Britons surveyed in relationships complained that they did not feel “synchronized” with their partners when it comes to their sleeping positions.

“This research shows how many of us are kept awake at night because our other half has two left feet,” he says. “Like dance, there is no doubt that sleep is an art form, and of course, participating in some exercise, such as dancing, can really tire you out and get a better night’s sleep.
“We have all experienced uncoordinated sleep partners, and I hope that my dance inspired sleep positions will help to inspire the nation to sleep better. Who would not like to wake up refreshed the next day and improve their performance !?”
To celebrate the launch of Dreams’ new sleep guru, Log, Craig Revel Horwood has teamed up with Dreams and sleep expert Sammy Margo to create a visual guide to sleep postures inspired by dance moves. The Sleep Like Log guide aims to help Britons “sync” with their partner for a better night’s sleep and ultimately ‘Sleep Like Log’. Download the Sleep Like Log guide here: #sleeplikelog | Dream
