CRAIG Revel Horwood looked ready for the ballroom when he appeared on This Morning today – sporting a deep Strictly-style tan.
The 56-year-old dance judge appeared on the show moments after it was revealed Anton Du Beke would be appearing on the judging panel.
The long-time dance pro is being drafted onto the panel after it was deemed “too risky” to rely on US-based Bruno Tonioli.
Craig told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby: “I was delighted when Anton got the job. I spoke to him on the way to the studio and he’s super excited.
“Isn’t it about time, darling? There is a time in your life when you have to give up the dance shoes. He deserves it.”
But many could only focus on the star’s glowing complexion with one tweeting: “That tan. .”

Later, Craig revealed that Strictly will be returning in just three months’ time, saying: “We go live at the end of September.”
Speaking about the lack of audiences in the previous series he said: “There was no one to boo me – I had to boo myself. It felt really flat.
“We had 10 of the crew in screaming and shouting. Fingers crossed it will go steaming ahead [this year].”
