Craig Revel Horwood’s ‘disrespectful’ words to Greg Wise on Strictly come under fire.
After allegedly abusing Greg Wise’s late sister on Strictly Come Dancing, CRAIGE REVEL HORWOORD has received a lot of reaction from spectators.
Week two of Strictly Come Dancing began yesterday night, with actor Greg Wise and partner Karen Hauer performing a disco routine. Greg chose to devote their dance to his late sister, who was a big fan of disco and dancing. However, not everyone was a fan of the dance, and judge Craig Revel Horwood received flak from some viewers on social media after making some harsh comments.
A pre-recorded video of Karen and Greg discussing the dance they will be doing this week was played before their dance.
“This week we have couples choice and we can pick any genre,” Karen said to Greg. “We’re dancing a disco dance because I know there was someone very dear in your life who liked disco.”
“Yeah, whenever you were around, my wonderful sister Claire would always have banging disco music on, so I want to dedicate it to my sister the disco queen,” he replied tearfully.
“Family is extremely important to me,” Greg said in a separate video. “I feel very lucky that Emma (Thompson) and I have formed a family through the years.”
“My sister Claire, who was first diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent the grueling treatment of chemotherapy, was a very vital member of the family.”
“However, I don’t believe she was ever out of the woods because it wasn’t discovered until much later that she had bone cancer, and she died just over a year after being diagnosed.”
“One of the hardest things when you’re with someone you care about is experiencing their agony and terror and trying to figure out what you can do to alleviate it,” he said.
He went on to say that he hoped his sister enjoyed their dance and that she would be dancing and laughing “a lot.”
Craig viciously criticized Greg’s performance after dancing, saying, “For me, it lacked any intrinsic rhythm.”
“I’m afraid it was too placed, like a cardboard cut-out; nonetheless, the story at the beginning with all the Legato portion was simply exquisite and dramatic, and the lifts were fantastic.”
The other three judges were favorable in their comments and congratulated Greg for taking on the challenge. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
