Craig Revel Horwood came to fame in 2004 when he joined a new BBC Saturday night entertainment show called Strictly Come Dancing, but the 50-year-old already had a successful career behind him, as a dancer and choreographer.

Born in Australia, Craig began his career as a dancer in Melbourne but moved to London in 1989 to take advantage of the better opportunities available. 

He began working in the West End, and garnered Lawrence Olivier nominations for his choreography on Spend Spend Spend and My One and Only. He was the director of Miss Saigon, and assisted on West Side Story, and in 2002 Craig choreographed the opening ceremony for Manchester's Commonwealth Games.

He joined Strictly Come Dancing in 2004, working alongside Arlene Philips, Bruno Tonioli, and Len Goodman, and he has a reputation for being harsh and stringently following the rules.

Craig has also come to be known for his pronunication of words, lengthening certain syllables, with his utterance of: "Three words: Fab-u-lous!" becoming iconic amongst Strictly fans.

Craig has admitted to being bisexual as a younger man, and was married to Jane Hallwood for two years in the early 1990s. They divorced in 1992, and Craig now lives with his partner, Damon Scott.

Speaking on his sexuality, Craig has said: "I was bisexual for a long time. I flitted between men and women quite a lot between the ages of 17 and 26. My wife Jane left me for another man. Then I fell in love with a bloke. I have been gay ever since."

Craig is also a patron of the National Osteoporosis Society, of which Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall is the Society's Royal patron.
