Ahead of the final four celebrity contestants heading to Blackpool to battle it out for the Strictly crown, the dance expert opened up about his thoughts on 30 year old Mollie King who is rumoured to be dating her professional partner AJ Pritchard.
The 52 year old warned that the blonde beauty isn’t keeping up with the rest of the dancing pack, and needs to “pull her socks up” or she could going home this weekend.

“She can look awkward and wooden sometimes. I feel like she’s holding something back”, he said of Mollie’s skills on the dance-floor.
The veteran judge also confessed that the singer hasn’t fulfilled the high expectations which he had for her.
“I thought at the beginning that she’d be one to watch, but she really needs to pull her socks up because she’s lagging behind”, warned Craig.

Speaking specifically about Mollie’s passionate paso doble with 23 year old partner AJ Pritchard at the weekend, Craig remained less than impress.
He told Radio Times that their routine was: “very awkward and ungainly, but it had power and presence.”
Craig’s latest cutthroat critique comes as Aston Merrygold’s pregnant girlfriend took swipe at Craig Revel-Horwood, saying he “deserves” the social media attacks he’s sustained.
