Summary

Contains an exclusive Q&A with the author, Craig Revel Horwood. 

The third instalment in Craig Revel Horwood's frank and funny autobiography takes the listener through the highs and lows of the Strictly Come Dancing star's 'fab-u-lous' life. Join Craig and a host of Strictly stars - including Ore Oduba, Judy Murray and the unforgettable Ed Balls - on the show and live tours and get the real stories from behind the scenes.

The Aussie-born judge shares his famously forthright views on the changes in the show's lineup, from Bruce Forsyth and Len Goodman's departures to the arrival of Claudia Winkleman and Shirley Ballas, as well as the dancers and 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 50 and moving from 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.

With his famous wit and a wealth of backstage gossip, In Strictest Confidence is the perfect listen for all his fans as well as those of Strictly Come Dancing.

A joy to listen

This book was an absolute joy to listen to. I loved every minute of it and could not stop listening to it. In this book CRH comes across like down to earth, lovely family man. It made me smile often and I was glad that Craig narrated the book himself. It brought the story really to life. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

NOT So fabulous

Craig himself narrates the story, which is great. He has clear pronunciation and as it is his own book, obviously knows the story well and emphasizes in the right places and reads with passion, however I found it boring and repetitive in parts and self idolising most of the way. I was hoping for more humor.

Mildly interesting

I’m afraid his voice and the constant use of the word “darling” started to get on my nerves.

Delightful

This book is fab uu luus .It really felt as though Craig was in the room talking to me but I just couldn't get a word in edge edgewise. It was just too short. Craig needs to put his other 2 books onto audio,I would certainly listen to them
