Craig Revel Horwood, 56, is not happy with the Strictly professionals refusing the coronavirus vaccine. So far, reportedly three dancers have refused the vaccine, leaving the crew furious and stars reluctant to pair with them.
In an exclusive interview with The Times, Craig discussed his view on the professionals refusing the vaccine.
He said: “This is no different a vaccine to the flu or anything, and why people are up in arms about it I have no idea.
“I think it’s ridiculous.”
Craig revealed: “I do know someone that is refusing to have it and that drives me nuts.”

Ex-Strictly professional James Jordan has also expressed his view on the unvaccinated dancers.
Talking to Good Morning Britain this week, he said: “I normally would protect the professional dancers until the cows come home, but on this occasion, I can’t, unfortunately.
“So yeah, I definitely believe they don’t deserve their right on the show, and the celebrities have the right to refuse to dance with them.”
Express.co.uk contacted a Strictly representative at the beginning of the week about this issue.
Their appearance was cut short on the show, leaving after week three due to Katya testing positive for COVID-19.
With the studio audience returning this season, the Strictly crew will have a big job on their hands keeping the show as safe as possible.
Craig is the only judge on the Strictly judging panel to have been there from the start, when the show started in 2004.
He will not be joined by his close friend, Bruno Tonioli on the judging panel.
