Craig Revel Horwood makes shock discovery on Who Do You think You Are

Craig Revel Horwood

Craig Revel Horwood delves into his family's past in Who Do You think You Are tonight.

Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig traces his Australian roots and discovers he’s not the first dancer in the family.

The show uncovers how in 1870, Craig’s great-great-grandfather Harry Macklin Shaw was a sheep header who spent his evening's clog dancing.

Craig reacts to the news: “There is – finally – some theatricality in my blood."

He is then pot on the spot to try and recreate what would have been some of his great-great-grandfather's best moves.

But it seems as though dancing in clogs doesn't come easy despite it apparently running in his genes.

"It felt so strange. In normal dance shoes you can point your toes, these are hard to balance in because the soles don’t have flexibility," says Craig. “I might need two more years of studying it to be any good.”

Other celebs on this year's series of Who Do You Think You Are? include actor Charles Dance, sports broadcaster Clare Balding, presenter Emma Willis, actor Noel Clarke, popstar Lulu, EastEnders actress Lisa Hammond, Citizen Khan comedian Adil Ray, presenter Fearne Cotton, and actress and comedian Ruby Wax all delve into their past in this year’s series.

In this highly anticipated new series viewers can expect tears, laughter, shocking discoveries, emotional revelations and some intriguing surprises as our celebrities explore their family trees and delve back centuries into their ancestry.

Who Do You Think You Are airs tonight at 9PM on BBC One.
