If you tell Craig Revel-Horwood he’s a villain, it seems the Strictly Come Dancing host will play up to expectations.

Heading to Jonathan Ross’s famous Halloween party on Thursday night, Craig kicked off his judge hat and dressed as a sexy Cruella de Vil, the villain from 101 Dalmations.

And with him he brought a bunch of willing minions dressed as the adorable dogs from the Disney classic, as he led them on leads into the bash.

Last night the ‘mean’ Strictly judge trolled fellow panellist Bruno Tonioli over his shirtless pics, so we can only imagine what Bruno is crafting up for his colleague.

Heading into the famous bash alongside the likes of Holly Willoughby, Alan Carr, Maya Jama and Simon Pegg, Craig was looking resplendent.

Wearing a cone-shaped bustier and the famous black and white, curly wig, he beamed for the cameras with his doggie pals in tow.

Oh, did we mention one of the dogs was his boyfriend Jonathan Myring? That’s right. Whatever floats your boat, no judgement here.

Craig wore a pair of extravagant boots as well as a warm coat made of puppies to shield from the London cold, over the top of a pair of fishnet stockings.

He cut no corners in putting this A+ outfit together.

Not stopping at the costume, Craig’s makeup consisted of dramatic, purple and black eye shadow and what can only be around seven pairs of false eyelashes. It was topped off with a bold, burgundy lip.

Hosted by the TV presenter and his producer wife Jane Goldman, the couple’s party has become a staple of the scare season, with the British glitterati piling into the pair’s Hampstead home for a night of fun and amazing costumes.

It comes after Craig trolled Bruno over his proclivity for shirtless selfies, playing up to his villain persona.

‘He had a good body when he was in Elton John’s I’m Still Standing video but that was 30 years ago, darling,’ Craig told the Daily Star, ‘He should learn to start covering up.’


Never one to stop pulling punches, Craig continued: ‘There should be a limit to what he is showing people, I think.

‘Bruno is in love with himself and his body. He thinks he has got the body of a 23-year-old.’

Perhaps he were merely dressing for Halloween, Craig?
