STRICTLY Come Dancing’s Craig Revel Horwood and the show’s former winner, Stacey Dooley, continually slate each other on the festive edition of The Wall.
The judge and the contestant on the BBC1 dance favourite are paired up on the celebrity version of the gameshow, which airs on Christmas Eve.

It comes after Craig, 55, refused to give Stacey, 33, top marks on 2018’s Strictly and caused further controversy when he suggested her relationship with dance partner Kevin Clifton, 38, had helped her take home the glitterball.
On The Wall, hosted by Danny Dyer, 43, they claim to have patched things up, but throughout the show they make constant digs.
When Craig goes into a sound-proof booth to answer questions, Stacey takes the chance to shout: “Thanks for nothing in 2018.”
Then when she describes how she always seemed to end up travelling with the judge on the Strictly tour, he said: “We were always put together. I didn’t ask for that – in fact I asked for the opposite.”

Despite starting off the show saying they now loved each other, the needling continues throughout the game.
The uneasy truce comes after Craig upset Stacey after she won Strictly in 2018 saying: “Stacey was dragged up from the dance gutter… of course, if you sleep with your dance partner that helps.”
He later had to make a grovelling apology, saying: “I’m deeply sorry for the offence caused to Kevin and Stacey and everyone who works on the show.”
Stacey and personal trainer Sam Tucknott, 30, ended their five-year relationship in March, 2019.

In July she revealed she was in a relationship with Kevin, who was previously married to Strictly pro, Karen Clifton, 38.
She gushed about how “amazing” he was and has since appeared on shows with him including ITV gameshow The Cube.
He is also sitting on the sidelines during the celebrity edition of The Wall, providing advice to his girlfriend.
