The 'Strictly Come Dancing' judge is loved up with horticulturalist Jonathan Myring, who is 22 years his junior, after being introduced by a mutual friend backstage at the 'Strictly' tour.

Craig, 53, told The Sun: "He's absolutely adorable, gorgeous.

"He's good-looking, 5ft 10in, dark hair and beard. We met on the 'Strictly' tour a month ago. He came to the show with a friend and we met backstage.

"We went on a date and now we're an item, which is lovely."

The pair have been spending as much time together as possible and Craig has already met Jonathan's parents.

Craig said: "He's had a long weekend down at my country house, and I've been to stay with him. This weekend he's coming down to stay again and we're going to a 50th birthday party and meeting all my friends.

"I'm really happy. He's absolutely gorgeous, super intelligent. It's a bit too early for the L word but we really, really like each other. This one is definitely a keeper.

"I met his parents last weekend, went out with all his friends and crashed a 50th birthday in the village where he lives. We plan on seeing each other a lot. We have all our weekends planned until 'Strictly'."

This is Craig's first serious relationship since he split from 'Britain's Got Talent' puppeteer Damon Scott, in 2016, after three years of dating.
