Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood probably wasn’t expecting a hip operation to get so much attention. But Strictly host Sir Bruce Forsyth starting a rousing round of “hip hip hooray” on last weekend’s show didn't exactly help to keep it quiet.
Having had the surgery on Sunday morning – which he puts down to “all those years of classical ballet and forcing turn-outs” – he’s now recovering (and tweeting).
Craig told his Twitter followers:
Craig admits he’s managed to stand, but is still working on walking. It’s believed he will be back in his chair on Saturday night to continue to judge this year’s celebrity dancing wannabes.
With no surgery on that acid-tongue of his, we’re sure the dancers will get just as much stick as ever from the dancing pro.
Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday at 6:30pm and Sunday at 7:20pm on BBC1
