Will Bayley: ‘They don’t care’ Strictly Come Dancing star scared to face ‘brutal’ judge

Strictly Come Dancing fans will find out who their favourite celebrities are partnered up with later on tonight.

As well as this year’s stars, viewers will catch a glimpse of judges Shirley Ballas, Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse.

Ahead of the BBC launch show, Will Bayley has revealed which Strictly judge he was “nervous” to face.

Speaking to press including Express.co.uk, Will spoke out about how he considered to be the most “brutal” judge.

He said: “I was really nervous about Craig just because he’s brutal with the scores.”

Comparing Craig to his fellow judges, Will remarked: “He’s [scores] one and he doesn’t care, the others are like three or two.”

However the paralympian revealed he changed his mind about the controversial judge after meeting him.

“But I saw him the other day and he’s really nice so it’s taken that edge off I think.”

Meanwhile Will has revealed what part of Strictly he’s looking forward to and it’s pretty surprisingly.

Strictly is famous for its sparkly costumes paired with striking fake tans and Will can’t wait to get his spray on.

He confessed: “My mum’s got a beauty shop and she always tried this fake tans on me when I was growing up.

“I always looked rubbish so I’m looking forward to getting a proper fake tan that’s decent.”

Will went on to confess he’s “struggled” with dancing in the group rehearsals.

“Feel like we’re so new to it,” he said. “Last week was the first time I’d ever danced.

“I felt like we were being carried around a bit by our partner they’re so good. 

“When we danced with each other the first day I was really struggling but when you have a pro with us it just makes it so much easier.”

Elsewhere, David James has revealed why he refused to do Strictly a number of times before signing up.

He said: “My basis was quite simple, that I don’t do celebrity shows, because as an ex-sportsman I don’t consider myself a celebrity, other than charity events.

“I did something for Sport Relief because that was a charity I wanted to get involved with.”

However he changed his mind when former contestant Mark Foster convinced him “it was a good idea because it’s such a great show”.

Strictly Come Dancing starts tonight on BBC One at 7.50pm.
