Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood opens up about his former marriage to wife

Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood has opened up about being married to a woman, and how he could see himself having kids in another life.

Appearing on the How to be 60 podcast, hosted by Loose Women's Kaye Adams, he spoke about his marriage to a woman named Jane between 1990 and 1992, and said if that hadn't ended he believes children could have been on the cards.

"I'm very lucky that I have a lot of nieces and nephews and god children [but] the reason I got married for the first time was for that reason, but she fell in love with someone else, so that's why that ended," he explained.

"But that would have been my opportunity and her opportunity and I think that’s why we made a bond, a love bond, together in that way. That’s basically what we wanted, because we felt our time was running out. She was 30, I was 25, so your life's almost over, and we’d better get on with it.

"But it didn't work out and wasn't meant to be, I suppose."

When asked if he could see himself marrying and having kids with a woman in general if he hadn't met his partner Jonathan Myring, Craig said: "Without a shadow of a doubt. It’s who you meet along the way and what changes it, it’s quite extraordinary."

"It's not the gender so much as the person themselves," he said elsewhere in the podcast, when speaking about bisexuality, stating that he feels like society has a 'one or the other' attitude.

Craig announced his engagement to Jonathan in 2020, and they delayed their wedding later in the year due to the pandemic.
