Craig Revel Horwood is planning to make his own champagne.

The "Strictly Come Dancing" judge and his horticulturalist boyfriend Jonathan Myring are looking to convert their paddocks into vineyards on the grounds of his Hampshire home.

Explaining their aims, Jonathan told The Sun newspaper's TV Bizarre column: "We are looking at turning our horse paddocks into vineyards. It's much more lucrative than renting out the horses.

"The paddocks are about three to four acres. We are looking to convert them to grow traditional champagne grapes so that we can create our own sparkling white wine."

The couple both enjoy white wine, and they're doing what they can to "support the local community" while getting advice about their new venture.

He added: "We like white wine. We have been around to all the vineyards that are local and we have tried all their wines and we are trying to support the local community.

"We've been going around asking for advice on what we can do. There are a lot of wine makers in that region who will take our grapes and bottle the wine."

Although Craig lost his father Philip to alcoholism in 2015, the dancer has revealed he put some of his inheritance towards building a wine cellar filled with rare champagne and vintage port.

Explaining the reasoning behind it, he previously said: "I wanted to do something that would pay homage to my father and remind me that if you drink too much, or if you drank that whole fridge, you would be dead.

"The drink killed him. It's a constant reminder that one should consider alcohol and what you drink."
