Strictly Come Dancing Vs The X-FACTOR: Who Is Top Trumps?
The Queen of Mean
Craig Revel Horwood
Who? Aussie-born choreographer and panto villain of the Strictly panel.
Styling: Black suit teamed with a flamboyant brogue and Tango tan.
Catchphrase: “Dis-ah-ster, darling.” “Spatulistic hands.”
Strengths: Doesn’t show favouritism or over-score like his fellow judges.
Weaknesses: Prone to criticising for the sake of it. Comments get drowned out by boos.
Who? Pop manager turned daft old luvvie of the X Factor panel.
Styling: Suit with rollneck or snazzy shirt, suspiciously youthful face.
Catchphrase: “I want. You. In. De foinal.” “You remind me of a little…” (insert inappropriate comparison)
Strengths: Close friend of Simon Cowell. Entertainingly eccentric.
Weaknesses: Soft spot for boybands, novelty acts and dated song choices.
