Strictly Come Dancing's Craig Revel Horwood thinks the Duchess of Cornwall would be a 'great' replacement for Len Goodman

Earlier this year it was confirmed this would be Len Goodman's last series as head judge on Strictly Come Dancing­, and now Craig Revel Horwood has opened up about his potential replacement.

Although some reports have claimed Craig, 51, is after 72-year-old Len's job, he's insisted it's not the case – but he does have an ideal candidate in mind. During an appearance on Good Morning Britain, Craig explained: "I don't want the job. I took it on last year when Len was off for a week. But no. I like the role I play thank you very much."

He continued: "I don't want the responsibility of all that nastiness at the end. I would like it to go to somebody else. Perhaps somebody unknown."

But Craig's first choice is someone very famous; his close friend and royal the Duchess of Cornwall!

"Actually, my best friend Camilla would be great," he insisted. "She's a fantastic dancer. She moves with such grace and authority."

The Strictly judge can't wait to offer Judge Rinder some "constructive criticism"

The full line-up of this year's celebrities was confirmed this week, and Craig confessed he's already excited about offering criticism to Judge Rinder.

He said: "Oh I'm looking forward to that enormously. If he wants to do well, he's going to need that stamina. If he can take the constructive criticism I will supply him in abundance, then he will come back feeling more special the following week."

Other stars set to take to the dancefloor include singer Louise Redknapp, EastEnders actress Tameka Empson, former Pop Idol winner Will Young and TV presenter Laura Whitmore.
