Craig Revel Horwood is an Australian-British dancer, choreographer and theatre director in the United Kingdom. He is a patron of the National Osteoporosis Society. Revel Horwood has substantial theatre credits in choreography and directing, but is best known as a judge on the BBC dancing show Strictly Come Dancing. He published his autobiography in 2008.

Born in Ballarat, Australia in 1965, Revel Horwood started his career as a dancer in Melbourne, then moved to London to take advantage of the greater opportunities available there. In 1989 he moved to the UK from Australia and on August 20, 2011 became a British citizen.

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.

Horwood is openly bisexual. His partner is Damon Scott known for coming runner up on Britain's Got Talent. Scott and Revel Horwood have been dating since 2013.

Horwood became a patron of the National Osteoporosis Society in 2009. In this, he has found common ground with Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, the Society's Royal patron (whose mother, like his, was afflicted with bone disease). The two of them danced the cha-cha-cha together on a school visit to mark National Osteoporosis Day in 2009.

  • He was nominated for a 2003 Laurence Olivier Theatre Award for Best Theatre Choreographer of 2002 for My One and Only performed at the Piccadilly Theatre.
  • He was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Theatre Award in 2000 (1999 season) for Best Theatre Choreographer for Spend, Spend, Spend Musical Production at the Piccadilly Theatre.
