Strictly fabulous, darling! With Craig Revel Horwood
Craig Revel Horwood gives us all the backstage gossip on the biggest show on TV…
LEAVE ANN ALONE!
Some nasty people kicked off online about Ann Widdecombe returning for the Strictly Christmas Special. But she’s fabulous! There’s a reason why she got to week 11 with Anton Du Beke. She’ll be great – she’s hilarious. I’m also looking forward to seeing Aston [Merrygold] dance
A lovely lady called Summer gets me camera-ready. She’s gorgeous. I know that downstairs on Level 1 she’s preparing all the pros and celebs and it’s total mayhem. But when she’s working with me after she’s finished with that lot, it’s all very zen. For me, it’s like going to a day spa for a bit! She gives me a facial massage, then minimal foundation (not like Bruno, who likes a lot). I look forward to it every week!
THE FAB FOUR
In the run-up to Christmas, it’s all bonkers. Us judges barely have time to see our own families – never mind enjoy a mulled wine together! Shirley [Ballas] starts panto rehearsals soon, as do I! Getting us in the same place at the same time is nigh impossible. The first proper gettogether we’ll have is on tour next year.
