Strictly Come Daning judge Craig Revel Horwood could be bowing out of the competition show after next year.

The dancer had previously shared how he plans on leaving Strictly when he turns 60, currently aged 58, it would see next year be his last if he stuck to plans.

Revel Horwood told Best magazine earlier this year that he does have plans to “hang up my shows and enjoy life” but still loves Strictly, sharing: “I'm now the same age as the late, great Len Goodman was when he first started - that's scary, isn't it?!

“The reason I look forward to it every year is because the cast changes. I think that's what's fun about it, it doesn't age. And this year's line-up is fab-u-lous!"

Strictly favourites could replace judge Craig Revel Horwood

Whilst Revel Horwood has not yet confirmed his exit plans, there have already been talks on who could replace his as a Strictly judge.

With names being mentioned including an Oscar-nominated actress and a fan favourite Strictly Pro.

Ex-Strictly professional dancer Joanne Clifton shared that she thinks Giovanni Pernice could step into Revel Horwood’s shoes.

As she told Betway: “Many of us would like to have a go at judging. I completely get why Anton wanted to. I can see Giovanni Pernice going for it in a couple of years' time.

“He could definitely be a type of Bruno Tonioli on the panel as he and Anton have their show together. He has a great personality."

Oscar-nominated actress Cynthia Erivo has also been mentioned to step into the Strictly judge role, she previously covered for Revel Horwood in 2021 after he tested positive for Covid and later did the same for Motsi Mabuse.

Other names that could replace Revel Horwood included X Factor star and host of It Takes Two, Fleur East who competed in 2022.

Along with couple Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton who won the show together and have since started a family together.
