'Cheap' BBC blasted for Strictly bus and B&Bs; CELEBRITY.

Byline: TOM BRYANT, ASHLEIGH RAINBIRD

STRICTLY Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood yesterday accused the BBC of being cheapskates in an astonishing outburst.

The acid-tongued judge hit out at Beeb chiefs for taking the dancing stars up to Blackpool in buses for tonight's show and putting them up in B&Bs.

And he said other judges were similarly outraged.

He said: " Bruno and Len have already been complaining. Everyone drops gold at their feet when they're in LA.

"Here they get shoved on a bus, sent up to Blackpool and forced to stay in a B&B and then shoved back down. But that's the BBC.

"I could travel on a bus with the celebs but I choose not to. That would be heinous."

The contestants travelled up yesterday to perform live at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom tonight.

Revel Horwood added he hoped Ann Widdecombe's incredible popularity would end this weekend.

He said: "It's time to wave goodbye to Widdy. The joke's over."
