Strictly judge in Cowell swap offer

Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood wants to swap places with Simon Cowell.

"I'll say this on national TV, I'll happily swap places, I'll go on the X Factor, if Simon Cowell comes on Strictly," he told Amanda Holden and Gok Wan on ITV's This Morning.

Holden asked him about a same sex couple appearing on Strictly this year.

"I agree, I did say this last week, I was rather hoping, it'd be great to have a same sex couple," he said.

"I doubt it'll happen this year, but I'd love it to happen this year."
