Richard Arnold loves his new dance partner but isn’t so keen on one particular judge! 

Daybreak presenter and Woman’s Own columnist Richard Arnold was thrilled to be partnered with Erin Boag on Saturday’s Strictly Come Dancing launch show.But he wasn’t so happy to be on the receiving end of judge Craig Revel Horwood’s barbed tongue.

‘I’m an easy target,’ Richard tells us. ‘I’d desperately like to prove him wrong, because one thing I hope people are discovering is that I’m actually more focused than you might think!

‘The trouble is I enjoy watching Craig as much as anyone else, but it’ll be interesting to see what it will be like when I’m standing there, sweating under the studio lights having just given it my all, and Craig say it’s a “disaaaaaster”.’

We think he’ll be just fine!
