Dancing donkey Craig Kelly

'Strictly Come Dancing' loser Craig Kelly has been branded "a donkey".

Arlene Philips, a former judge on the show, has slammed the ex-'Coronation Street' actor - who was voted out on Saturday night (07.11.09) - saying he was "deluded" about the quality of his dancing and lumbered around the dance floor like a "Blackpool donkey".

She said: "It was the right decision. What really shocks me is Craig's really deluded about his dancing.

"He dances so badly. He looked like one of the Blackpool donkeys that had just wandered up from the beach."

Arlene criticised Craig for not making enough effort to improve and said that simply moving his feet wasn't enough.

She explained: "He never realized what is required in a show like this and the improvements one has to make week by week."

Craig could also be set to join series co-stars Ali Bastian, Natalie Cassidy and Zoe Lucker on the 'Strictly Come Dancing' UK tour.

Arlene - who was booted off the TV judging panel this year - will rejoin her former colleagues Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood on the touring panel, with former contestants Kelly Brook and Mark Ramprakash also signed up to dance.
