Craig Revel Horwood sits in20190203

Hot foot from the Strictly Come Dancing UK tour Craig Revel Horwood sits in for Elaine Paige, presenting his favourite show tunes and the latest news from stage and screen.

Craig's role as a Strictly Come Dancing judge is just a tiny part of the contribution he has made to the world of dance and musical theatre over the last 30 years. He's worked as a performer, a choreographer and as director on the likes of Miss Saigon, Martin Guerre, Fiddler on the Roof, Guys and Dolls, Cats, Spend, Spend, Spend, Copacabana, Chess, Calamity Jane, Crazy for You, South Pacific, My One and Only, Sister Act and Sunset Boulevard....the list goes on. He's a regular panto wicked queen and has recently completed a UK tour as Miss Hannigan in Annie. He choreographed the Hollywood dance routine for the imprisoned villain Phoenix Buchanan - as played by Hugh Grant in Paddington 2 and played the evil thespian Emmanuel Cavendish in "Nativity Rocks" last Christmas. He is currently director and judge on the UK tour of Strictly Come Dancing Live.

Craig was born in Ballarat in Victoria, Australia. Early career highs included parts in West Side Story, La Cage Aux Folles and Me and My Girl. He also appeared as Lavish - a trumpet playing, tap dancing drag act with a penchant for belting out Whitney Houston songs. After a period at the Paris Lido Craig finally came and settled in the UK.

Today's show includes music from Hello Dolly, Damn Yankees, Back to the Future, The Hot Mikado and Showboat. As ever Craig will encourage the Radio 2 audience to get up and dance and teach some moves via the medium of radio - including The Lambeth Walk from Me and My Girl and the Frug from Sweet Charity.
