And revealed he had a difficult time at school

But appearing on spin-off show It Takes Two Craig revealed he hasn’t always been so confident.

Discussing his early years, he said: “When I was at school I had very limited friends, I just did not fit in at all.

“I didn’t like sport at school – in fact I hated it.

“Any kid in Australia that doesn’t like sport is a social misfit and outcast.

“That’s why I went to the dance classes, people were telling me I was good at it and it was the first thing I’d ever been good at.

“I felt like I was part of a community that understood me.”

Craig also showed off some incredible throwbacks showing him looking unrecognisable.

He’s famed for holding back on handing out the top score but last week revealed a secret signal that a 10 is incoming.

Craig said: “The 10 for me, it’s got to blow me away. I have got to put my pen down.”
