Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood forced to knock £500k off asking price of his £3m stately home

STRICTLY star Craig Revel Horwood has knocked more than half a million quid off the asking price of his manor house.

The stone-faced judge on the BBC1 dance contest put six-bedroom Middlecot Manor on the market for £3.3million.

But Craig, 56, who returns to the show when it comes back later this month, has  been forced to reduce the price by £550,000 to £2.75million.

A TV insider said: “Despite being a luxurious pad with a swimming pool and a glitzy interior decorated  to his ostentatious taste, Craig wants more.

“He’s said he wants a pad with even more bedrooms as well as moving closer to the family of his partner, Jonathan Myring, whose family live in Leicester.

"He’s serious about wanting to make the move and the fact he’s reduced the asking price is a reflection of that determination.”

The manor, which is in a period style but is only ten years old, includes a hot tub which can accommodate a dozen people and a wraparound conservatory.

Craig bought the Hampshire manor for £1.8million in 2014 after tiring of life in Camden, London.

He revamped it with  vintage chandeliers, mirrored floors in the kitchen and a “booze room” which includes a wall of wine fridges.

Now he’s eyeing up a property in the midlands of which he said: “It’s really lovely. Seven bedrooms, bigger pool…I’m upsizing.”
