Children in Need always have a fun evening watching TV as they raise as much money as possible for the people who need it most.

The show has been running for more than 40 years and has raised more than £ 1 billion to help improve the lives of disadvantaged children and adolescents across the UK.

When the video clip finished we were back on the Children In Need stage, where comedian Chris took the opportunity to shadow Craig and, in real comedian fashion, he started with, “Thanks for that. And I only have one thing for you Craig buddy, your score is awesome, ”as he held up a sign with the number four on it.

He went on to joke, “How did you like this Craig – see how you like it. It’s good to finally find out. “

Co-host Alex stepped in and said, “It’s been two years since you had to get over it.”

Craig then added, “I can’t, I just can’t because my rumba deserves more.”

Chris appeared in the seventeenth series of Strictly Come Dancing in 2019 and was paired with professional dancer Karen Hauer.

The pair were on the verge of being crowned winners when they reached the semifinals but ended up finishing fourth.

And it looks like his rumba performance was still not above his low Craig score, because two years later he has now paid his friendly revenge on the judge.
