Craig Revel-Horwood’s shock replacement REVEALED as judge forced off by covid
As he recovers from Covid-19, Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel-Horwood will be replaced by award-winning singer and actress Cynthia Erivo.
The Tony Award winner, 34, will join Shirley Ballas, Motsi Mabuse, and Anton du Beke on the judging panel for this weekend’s musicals week, according to a statement released by the show today.
Cynthia, who has appeared on stage and screen, said, “I’m overjoyed to be joining the Strictly judging panel for Musicals Week.”
Musicals hold a special place in my heart because they have a unique way of uniting all forms of art and making them one.
“I’m looking forward to bringing my experience to the show, and I’m excited to see what the couples have planned for this weekend.”

NIGHT OF MOVIES
This was the night, many moons ago, when Jay McGuinness performed Pulp Fiction’s awesome jive.
When does Strictly Come Dancing air?
The BBC executives enjoy keeping us on our toes.
Tonight’s episode of Strictly comes on at a new time… 6.35 p.m.
To our ears, it’s music.
Strictly has passed the halfway point, in case you didn’t realize.
It’s musicals night tonight.
Craig’s replacement on the panel tonight is absolutely fantastic.
Cynthia is one of the few stars to have won an Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Award. She was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar in 2019.
The musical theater star’s powerful vocals, which helped her play soul legend Aretha Franklin in a US TV true-life drama, will soon be featured in a big-screen adaptation of the hit stage show Wicked, which also stars pop sensation Ariana Grande.
Cynthia, a 34-year-old Londoner and the daughter of a nurse, is now friends with Oprah Winfrey and Whoopi Goldberg, two of the most powerful women in show business.
The judging crisis on Strictly Come Dancing has been averted thanks to a multi-award-winning star who has stepped in to replace Covid-hit Craig Revel Horwood.
While she may not be well-known in her home country, Cynthia Erivo, who was born in the United Kingdom, has proven she is a major talent by dazzling in the United States.
