Craig and Bruno's Great British Road Trip star Craig Revel Horwood has revealed he would like to become a father at the age of 56.

"But I am waiting to see how our relationship develops and if it's solid enough and a good base to bring children into it. It certainly needs a lot of planning," the Australian-British dancer added. From 2015 to 2017, Craig starred as drunken orphanage owner Miss Hannigan in the UK tour of the hit musical. Based on a comic strip by Harold Gray, called Little Orphan Annie, the story follows a curly red-haired girl called Annie, who lives in an orphanage.

Craig has never looked happier since embarking on his relationship with Jonathan; they were introduced through a mutual friend backstage during the 2018 Strictly tour. Sharing his happiness, he previously told The Sun: "I'm really happy. He's absolutely gorgeous, super intelligent. It's a bit too early for the L word but we really, really like each other. This one is definitely a keeper."

Interrupting his partner, Craig quipped: "That's because the last time we waited for platypus, it was four hours and we didn't see one. So I wasn’t going to sit through that again, was I? All I wanted to do was go back to the hotel and have a bubble bath. Well I jumped in the bubble bath and then Jonathan jumped in with me and proposed in the bubble bath with a glass of champagne."
