STRICTLY’s Craig Revel Horwood has a secret “second job” that’s not shown on TV.
Craig, 57, has been a judge on the show since it started way back in 2004 and is known for his straight-talking feedback to the stars taking part.

But he also works behind the scenes as a choreographer
But behind the scenes Craig, who started his dance career in 1982, also works as a choreographer, and has been putting the Strictly Live Tour together every year since it started in 2008.
He also launched the UK musical adaptation of the film Strictly Ballroom, which will tour the country until July next year.
And it’s a Strictly family affair as former pro dancer Kevin Clifton and 2020 star Maisie Smith star in the show.
Craig told the Daily Star of the movie: “It’s been part of my Christmas, I’ve got to admit for the last 20 years, actually.
“I watch it every Christmas because I love it, and it just reminds me of home, and now I’ve got opportunity to direct and choreograph with Jason Gilkison, who does all the lead choreography on Strictly Come Dancing, the TV show.
“And of course, Strictly Come Dancing got its name – Strictly – from Strictly Ballroom the movie. And now it’s a musical.”
Last week we revealed it’s been claimed Craig has been locking horns with fellow judge Motsi Mabuse behind the scenes.
Craig – who recently branded Motsi a “diva” – has been clashing with his co-star who admitted they’re “not friends” outside of work.
Insiders claim Craig was “unhappy” about what Motsi wrote about her Strictly judges in her new book, Finding My Own Rhythm, which was released last month.
