Prince Charles’ wife’s close friend Craig Revel Horwood revealed that if he has his way, the British royal would replace veteran judge Goodman on the BBC dance show as lead judge when he leaves at the end of the year.
Horwood who is a fellow judge at Strictly, said that Camilla would be the right person to take over from the 72-year-old Goodman. On being asked by reporters he said that he would not like to be the lead judge
“I would like it to go to somebody else, perhaps somebody unknown. Actually my best friend Camilla would’ve great,” said Horwood, according to Mirror UK.
He added that the Duchess of Cornwall is a “fantastic dancer” and moves with “grace and authority.”
But, it actually remains to be seen if he can persuade Camilla to join the judging panel of “Strictly.” The news comes after Len Goodman, who is also a judge on American show “Dancing With The Stars,” announced he would step down from the Strictly judging panel after the upcoming series.
There is speculation as to who would succeed Len Goodman as the lead judge of “Strictly Come Dancing.” It is being said that there are chances that former British Prime Minister David Cameron may want to join.
This was suggested by Jeremy Corbyn. The new season of the BBC dance reality show starts in September and will include celebs like politician Ed Balls and singer Anastacia as star contestants. Apart from Craig Revel Horwood, Bruno Tonioli and Darcey Bussell will be returning on the judging panel, Mirror UK reports.
Strictly Come Dancing 2016 will premiere on Saturday, Sep.3. The new series will kick-off on BBC One at 6.50 pm and run until 8.15 pm.
