Craig Revel Horwood & Jonathan

Craig Revel Horwood is synonymous with Strictly Come Dancing – he’s been judging the talent show since it first started in 2004!

As well as carving out a successful career in theatre and TV, Craig is also newly engaged and looks to be madly in love.

He’s previously been interviewed about his relationships and it seems that the judge is relatively open about his love life. He’s been in a relationship with Jonathan Myring since 2018 and the couple recently got engaged.

Speaking to Mail Online in 2018, Craig revealed that he thought Jonathan was “a keeper” and said that the pair met on the Strictly Tour that year: “He came to the show with a friend and we met backstage“.

Jonathan Myring: Age

After meeting in 2018, Jonathan and Craig hit it off right away. There’s a 22-year age gap between the pair, with Craig being 55 years old and Jonathan 33.

Job-wise, Jonathan and Craig couldn’t be more different as the 33-year-old works as a horticulturist. According to LinkedIn, some of his career has included working as a “Historic Glasshouse Apprentice at The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew“.

After two years together, Jonathan got down on one knee while the pair were in Tasmania last March. Their engagement didn’t exactly go to plan as they explained on The Steph Show in 2020. Jonathan had a romantic plan but Craig refused to sit on the banks of the river to look for platypus, so their engagement actually took place once they got back to their hotel – in the bath!

As reported by The Sun, the couple aren’t keen on a Covid wedding and plan on holding a huge celebration in the next couple of years.

Craig’s fiancé often posts to Twitter (@jonathanmyring), including snaps of the pair attending Jonathan Ross’ annual Halloween party!
