Loose Women in chaos as Strictly Craig chat is plagued with awkward tech issues

Loose Women host Christine Lampard was filling for time live on air today after being plagued by technical fails.

Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood was booked onto the show to talk about the upcoming BBC series as well as his new book.

However, after just a few minutes on the programme his video link started to crackle.

After carrying on undeterred, the line cut out completely.

As the connection broke, Christine exclaimed: "No we can't have lost him.

"We have so much to talk about… he has to come back!"

Ever the professional, Frank Lampard's wife played for time by chatting to her fellow Loose Women about their favourite Strictly memories.

Luckily Craig's untimely departure only lasted a few minutes before he was back agian.

Opening up about first joining the show, Craig, 55, said: "Myself and Len Goodman gave it 3 weeks.

"We didn't think anyone would be interested in ballroom dancing – especially celebs who can't dance.

"How wrong we were darling – it is now even in Mongolia. It's in 60 countries world wide."

Recalling the first show, Craig continued: "I enjoyed it.

"It was a brand new thing and we were making it up as we were going on.

"The first show was scripted and then they dumped it as it was better to just react with the dances."

Strictly is set to return later this month on BBC One.

This year the show has been given a 2020 revamp due to ongoing coronavirus social distancing rules.

Not has the single judges table been replaced with individual judging desks but the large scale live audience has also been axed.

Instead, the show will run a cabaret style format with friends, family and fans of the show sitting at tables of six around the dance floor.
