Craig has had some unusual fan encounters

Craig Revel Horwood has revealed that a fan once tried to talk to him at a very private moment.

The Strictly Come Dancing judge was on the toilet when an admirer attempted to start a conversation with him.

Someone knocked on the door when I was actually on the toilet,’ says Craig, 48.

They tried to have a conversation through the toilet door… when I was doing a number two.’

The embarrassing encounter hasn’t put Craig off mixing with the public though – he’s admitted that he still uses public transport and likes to be thrifty.

[I last used public transport] a couple of weeks ago,’ he tells Celebs On Sunday.

It was First Class, but I wanted it to be cheap so I booked the train ticket six weeks in advance and I felt very special.

I was returning from a dirty weekend with my secret partner.’
