Dancing With The Stars Craig Revel Horwood says he doesn’t care what Australians think of him

He’s provoked the ire of viewers with his acid-tongued critiques and brutally honest commentary on Australia’s revamped Dancing With The Stars. 

But Craig Revel Horwood, 54, has defended his ‘mean judge’ persona on the show, insisting that he doesn’t care what Australians think of him.  

‘I don’t care whether people warm to me. I’m here to judge a dance show,’ the professional dancer and choreographer told TV Week magazine on Monday.

‘I don’t think they get my sense of humour yet. I’m tongue in cheek, but very much to the point,’ he added.  

Indeed, Craig was slammed for his ‘nasty, rude and downright insulting’ jabs on Twitter during his debut appearance on the show’s season premiere last month.  

His lowest score on the evening was given to Karl Stefanovic’s ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn, shocking the other judges by raising a paddle with one point.

Craig told the former journalist without hesitation: ‘It was all going well until the skirt came off and you started to dance and there, quite frankly, was the failure.’

Angry fans lashed out at Craig on Twitter, with one raging: ‘There is nothing constructive in his comments. To say nothing nice about Cassandra is bloody ridiculous.’

Another claimed the show didn’t need a ‘villain’ or ‘nasty judge’ and found his approach ‘rude’ and ‘extremely brutal’.

‘Craig your old bi*chy drama queen act is getting real old real quick. My finger now rests on the mute button on the remote whenever I see you about to speak,’ one post read on social media.

Others suggested they’d prefer another judge step in to replace Craig, with one writing: ‘If you don’t remove him, people will turn off.’ 

The Bachelor host Osher Gunsberg even weighed in, saying: ‘Good judge, good judge, nasty judge. The classic line up.’

Craig said in a Channel Ten statement before the show aired: ‘I will be watching every move, there is no hiding bad technique or poor posture on my watch.

‘I expect nothing less than perfection. And while these celebrities might be famous in their own right, the dance floor is my domain so they better be ready to rumba.’

Craig served as a judge on Strictly Come Dancing in the UK since 2004 and joined the Australian reboot of Dancing With The Stars earlier this year. 

He is joined on the judging panel by professional ballroom dancer Sharna Burgess and Irish dancer Tristan MacManus.
