Strictly Come Dancing's Craig Revel Horwood has admitted he's not surprised by all the romances on the show.

Over the years, Strictly has sparked all sorts of relationships, some of which have stood the test of time.

And for choreographer Craig, it's little surprise when the celebs and professionals work so closely together for hours ever day.

He said: “Being up-close-and-personal, all day every day, and working on some really sexy moves together, it’s almost inevitable.

“It’s very close, it’s very physical work, and you have to get quite intimate, so these things do happen. If you’re both single, then why not? It does it help in the dance department. That ­connection is never a bad thing during the routines.”

But the romances often end in tears and complications.

Kristina Rihanoff got with her celebrity partner Joe Calzaghe, but it saw the boxer get jealous once the series returned and she was dancing with another celebrity.

Craig told the Daily Mirror newspaper today: “Kristina was always a bit wary of getting too close, in case Joe got jealous – and Mark [Ramprakash] was a bit nervous too. They had to make sure they danced as far apart as possible.”
