Strictly judge, Craig Revel Horwood‘s admission about Layton Williams divided It Takes Two viewers on Monday (November 27) evening.
Actor Layton and his pro partner Nikita Kuzmin escaped elimination from the BBC One dance contest last weekend. They faced Angela Scanlon and Carlos Gu in the dance off – with head judge Shirley Ballas indicating her pick to go would’ve been Layton.
However, her opinion in this instance did not affect the result. Angela and Carlos departed the dance floor for the final time after Craig, Motsi Mabuse and Anton du Beke all chose to save Layton.
