Tom Fletcher, 36, has revealed that he is most keen to impress Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood, 56. Notoriously tough judge Craig has been on the show’s panel since it began in 2004.

I would like to impress Craig as he is the only one that will be able to compare us.

The McFly member said: “I would like to impress all of the judges.

“But, I guess, Craig is the only one who will have seen Harry and me.”

Tom added: “So, I would like to impress Craig as he is the only one that will be able to compare us.”

Harry Judd, the drummer in McFly, won the 2011 series of Strictly Come Dancing with dancer Alioni Vilani.

In November 2010, he won a Children in Need special of the show with Ola Jordan.

He carried on this winning streak, lifting the Strictly Christmas special trophy in 2015 with Joanne Clifton.

When Harry was on the show, Craig was one of the presiding judges.

As of 2020, Craig is the only member of the judging panel to be part of the show since its inception.

He has a reputation for being the harshest critic on the show, often being the recipient of loud booing from the audience.

Tom wanting to impress Craig the most means the singer will need to be in top shape throughout the competition.

The McFly singer has no previous dancing experience, revealing most of the dancing talent in the band is owned by Harry.

Harry was on the show 10 years ago, and Tom feels like now is the best time for him to do the show.

He said: “I think secretly somewhere deep down I’ve wanted to do it since my bandmate Harry did it 10 years ago.

“I feel like I have had some secret desire to do it since then.

“But, you know, life gets in the way and now it just feels right, it feels like it’s the right time.”

With Harry winning the show, as well as spin-offs, Tom realises there is a pressure for him to perform on the show.

Tom said: “Well, I guess, I always thought if I did Strictly there would be a sort of pressure.

“I feel like after 10 years I just want to have a fun experience.

Tom added: “You only get to do Strictly once and it’s a national treasure this show.

“I just want to have the best time and not worry about competing with Harry Judd.”

You can catch Strictly Come Dancing every Saturday night at 7pm on BBC One.
