A treat in store for inveterate  fans of Strictly Come Dancing…  Blackwell’s Bookshop is delighted to welcome to Oxford Craig Revel Horwood, who will be discussing the third instalment of his frank and funny autobiography, In Strictest Confidence at the Sheldonian Theatre.

In Strictest Confidence takes the reader through the highs and lows of the Strictly Come Dancing star’s ‘fab-u-lous’ life. The aussie-born judge shares his famously forthright views on the changes in Strictly Come Dancing‘s line up – from Bruce Forsyth and Len Goodman’s departures to the arrival of Claudia Winkleman and Shirley Ballas – as well as the dancers and the stars.

Away from Strictly, Craig reveals fresh heartache over failed romances, his pain at losing his Dad and how his work kept him from flying to Australia for the funeral. He marks the milestones in his life, including turning fifty and moving to London to live in a ‘gorgeous’ country pile, as well as going under the knife for a second hip operation plus a few nips and tucks.

The multi-talented dancer, director and choreographer also discusses his award-winning shows, including Sister Act and Son of a Preacher Man, and spending a year in drag as Miss Hannigan in Annie. Plus, he reveals all about his foray into movies, choreographing Hugh Grant for Paddington 2 and making his big screen debut in Nativity Rocks.
