He has never been one to put a cork in it when he gives his critiques on Strictly, but Craig Revel Horwood is going to be making his own wine!
The Strictly Come Dancing judge is planning to turn the land at his sprawling Hampshire home into vineyards to go into the winemaking business.
The 53-year-old is starting up the venture with his boyfriend of eight months, Jonathan Myring.
Jonathan, who is a horticulturist, revealed to The Sun: “We are looking at turning our horse paddocks into vineyards. It’s much more lucrative than renting out the horses.
“The paddocks are about three to four acres. We are looking to convert them to grow traditional champagne grapes so that we can create our own sparkling white wine.”
The happy couple met on the Strictly Come Dancing tour earlier this year through a mutual friend.
Craig has already built a wine cellar in his home, which he says is in memory of his father, Philip.
He previously explained to Sunday Mirror: “I wanted to do something that would pay homage to my father and remind me that if you drink too much, or if you drank that whole fridge, you would be dead.
“The drink killed him. It’s a constant reminder that one should consider alcohol and what you drink.”
Sadly, the star lost his father to alcoholism in 2015.
Yesterday, the notoriously harsh judge was called up for his scoring on Strictly.
Professional dancer Pasha Kovalev, who is partnered with Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts this year, joked that Craig doesn’t even have a number ’10’ score paddle under his desk on the panel!
It comes after Craig was the only judge not to give Pasha and Ashley a top score last weekend.
Whilst appearing on BBC’s It Takes Two with Ashley, Pasha said: “I was actually trying to check if he has a 10, a little paddle.”
When host Zoe Ball asked if he managed to fine one, Pasha quipped: “No, he didn’t so I stocked him up. He has three.
“Instead of eight, nine and 10. They are gone. He has 10s now.”
Let’s see how the scoring goes this weekend then…
