Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood does U-turn over having kids with partner

Craig Revel Horwood seems to have changed his mind about never having kids – now saying he will not rule it out.

The Strictly Come Dancing judge wants to marry Jonathan Myring, who is 22 years his junior, after finding love with the gardener.

The TV star spent Christmas with Jonathan and his family – who have “loads of little ones”.

Craig, 54, said: “His family are like little breeders. They’re really banging kids out, it’s wonderful.”

Ahead of the Strictly Live tour, he said: “I wouldn’t say no if he wanted to do it. I don’t want to stop him doing stuff just because I don’t want to.”

Yet just before Christmas Craig said: “There won’t be any children – that’s a step too far.”

Craig, who published the third part of autobiography In Strictest Confidence last year, says of Jonathan: “He’s just gorgeous.”

Speaking earlier this year, Craig admitted he doesn’t even give the 22 year age gap a second thought.

“I don’t even think about the age gap – at least I will have someone to push me around in the wheelchair,” he laughs. “I am really lucky.

“I never really considered the age thing until I asked him his age. Age is just a number and it doesn’t have any relevance to love or how you feel about someone.”

It is clear that he feels he has found genuine love and respect with his new man.

Craig explains: “I think it is really, really difficult to meet someone, and someone genuine, that is the hardest thing.

“People are constantly after something, and they are normally fame-hungry and they normally want some sort of enterprise or distinction with something. It is quite difficult to find someone who might be genuinely interested in you. I don’t know anything about the horticultural world so I think it is good that we do things which are quite different.”
