Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood has set a wedding date with partner Jonathan Myring.
Looking uncharacteristically bright and beaming on Lorraine on Wednesday morning, he revealed the news as he was promoting the upcoming series of Strictly, due to begin later this month.
Craig broke the news that he was engaged to Jonathan exclusively to OK! back in April 2020. With no wedding taking place since as a result of the pandemic, host Lorraine was eager to know when the big day would be taking place.
“I’m getting married in the summer of ’23,” the judge said.
“Only because ‘22 is out the window now because all of my work for the last two years in the theatre has been crowbarred into next year.”
Having to reschedule his one man show, All Balls and Glitter, as well as theatre production, Strictly Ballroom, based on the 1992 film of the same name, Craig has had to push much of his personal life around to make way for his work commitments next year.
“It has been alarming, like for everyone else in the country,” he continued telling Lorraine.
This has far from dampened Craig's spirits as seen on the daytime show though, as he described his upcoming projects outside of BBC’s Strictly enthusiastically.
“We’re finally getting it on and I cannot wait.”
Out of the all-new celebrity line-up that includes musician Tom Fletcher, BBC Breakfast’s Dan Walker and actor Greg Wise, Craig showed the most excitement for one particular contestant.
“Judi Love is standing out. She is fantastic, her personality is brilliant,” he said before revealing that he already knew who the contestants are partnered with on the show.
“I can’t wait for everyone to see the pairings. They are brilliant. So good, this year.”
Craig explained that there will be four new dancers also joining the upcoming series of Strictly – although there are reports that one dancers on the show has fallen ill with Covid-19.
When asked by Lorraine about how this might jeopardise Strictly this year, Craig responded: “That is something BBC will always have to keep addressing, you know, but it’s so brilliantly run backstage.
"Everyone is protected to the max by government guidelines."
The 54-year-old went on to say that only a few people were currently allowed in the studio and the cast and crew keep a safe distance.
“We don’t pass in corridors things like that,” he assured Lorraine, pinpointing one aspect he does miss about the pandemic restrictions on the show.
He said: “I miss the booing, I’ve got be honest.”
