Craig Revel Horwood reveals former Strictly professional James Jordan would not be welcomed back onto the dance show after his exit in 2014.
James has been vocal about his thoughts on this year's series of the show, insisting it was not up to the usual standard.
Opening up in an exclusive shoot and interview with OK!, Craig insists: "Oh, he would say that. Honestly, we won’t make amends until he stops slagging me off!
"His comments and scores on Twitter always tally up with mine. He thinks the same as I do and it makes me laugh because he clearly wants my job!"

Asked whether he could ever see James joining the show as a judge, Craig replied: "Not in a million years. He’s too bitter, he’s too twisted! We’d have a laugh on the panel – I’d put him in his place!"
Craig and James have endured a public spat for years, falling out in 2016 over James' wife Ola Jordan's raunchy calendar.
Craig commented that because Strictly was a family show, pictures of Ola “pouring milk all over herself with her legs spread” may be a bit wide of the mark.
Ex-Celebrity Big Brother contestant James hit back, calling Craig "vile".
"How can he say it’s not OK to sell a sexy Christmas calendar, but it is OK to sell his own book telling the world he was a drunken rent boy, and call it All Balls and Glitter," James stormed.
Hitting back, Craig said: "James is just drumming up publicity to sell that calendar! He had a Twitter spat with Danny Dyer, too. no one cares!"

Craig, 55, also opened up in the exclusive shoot with OK! about his upcoming nuptials with fiancé Jonathan Myring, 33.
Asked who will be invited from Strictly, Craig insisted: "Not everyone. And we don’t feel any pressure to include everyone either. If you’re not invited, you’re not invited. Get over it."
He added: "There are definitely people we will invite, though. Definitely Bruno, Tess and Vernon, as we love them, Darcey Bussell and Shirley will have to be there, goodness knows what she’ll wear. We’re getting Alexandra Burke to sing. And the first dance will be a Charleston."
Jonathan added: "We’re now looking at August 2022 – we’re building our own wedding venue in the forest.
"So it gives us time to make it amazing. There’s a 600-year-old chestnut tree in the middle of our woods, we’ve cleared underneath and there’s room to seat 100 people."
He added: We’re hoping for lots of lights and lamps to make it like a fairy tale."
