In his autobiography, Horwood (nicknamed Craig Revel Horrid) reveals that at the age of 17 he made money by appearing as a drag queen in bars and clubs and that his relationship with an unnamed celebrity was akin to prostitution.
He has twice undergone plastic surgery. The first occasion was a "nose job" at the age of 18. In 2011, Horwood revealed that he had undergone a breast reduction during 2010 because his "C"-size cups rendered dancing painful.
