Craig Revel Horwood made his boyfriend sign a no-kiss-and-tell contract


Strictly Come Dancing star Craig Revel Horwood has admitted to insuring himself against dating disasters by making new boyfriends sign a non-disclosure agreement.

The BBC dance show judge told Good Morning Britain that he fiercely guards his privacy with a legal contract silencing any dates from spilling the beans on their romance, including his current partner.

He said: “How many times have people in the public eye been done over for a kiss and tell?”

Asked by show hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid at what point he brought the paperwork out, Revel Horwood replied: “As soon as I meet them…Before or after is what you’re asking. It’s before. Seriously, I have to.”

Morgan asked him: “So when you’re about to have sex with someone, do you say, ‘here’s the contract, sign it, then we can carry on’?”

Revel Horwood laughingly agreed, saying that his current partner Jonathan Myring had signed the papers, as did any builders or tradespeople who visited his home.

He said: “He made me sign one as well. It is important that people don’t go spouting off about your life. It’s nice to have something private.”

In the wake of Saturday night’s Strictly Lindy Hop-a-thon disaster in which the digital scoreboard broke and head judge Shirley Ballas blurted out that Ashley Roberts had won, then forgot the names of various contestants, Revel Horwood stuck up for his co-star.

He said: “I think [Ballas] is great, I think she’s worked out brilliantly. What she doesn’t know about dancing is nobody’s business.”

The sharp-tongued judge also said that he wasn’t put off dancing in public by the fear of people critiquing his own moves.

He said: “Sometimes I dance at weddings. It doesn’t bother me, I go out to have a good time like anyone else.

“I’m a fantastic dancer – let me rephrase that, I was. I gave up when I was 30 to become a choreographer.”
