Unexpectedly good - Craig really does reveal some surprises.,
This review is from: All Balls and Glitter: My Life (Paperback)
I got 'All Balls and Glitter' having managed to avoid most of the media spoilers as I don't follow celebrity lifestyles. I do however, absolutely lurrrve Strictly, and who better to fill the gap between seasons than Craig?
First surprise - As the second oldest in a family of five with some much younger siblings, Craig is a dab hand at mixing baby formula, changing nappies and generally caring for small children.
Second surprise. Although his alcoholic father was somewhat of a tyrant when he was growing up, Craig flatly refuses to slur his name beyond the facts. His ex-Navy father is surprisingly proud of his very talented son's background as a drag artiste, and Craig clearly respects his Dad. Respect back to Craig.
Third surprise. Craig had a heterosexual marriage to an attractive Welsh woman called Jane - he genuinely loved and respected her. The jaw hit the floor with that one.
What a cracking read all that was, and I wasn't even halfway through. I loved the insight into musical theatre and choreography and Craig's wonderfully self-deprecating tone throughout. He's not afraid to tell a story against himself and many of them are very, very funny. I wish him personal happiness to go with his glittering career, he deserves it very much. Big hugs to him.
