Strictly: Stacey Dooley praises Maisie Smith ahead of final

Former Strictly Come Dancing star Kevin Clifton, 37, revealed he actually told off his 2018 partner and now girlfriend Stacey Dooley, during their version of the Samba on the 16th series.

He and Stacey, who is taking on Danny Dyer’s The Wall along with Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood this evening, took the glitterball trophy, marking it the first time for Kevin after being a losing finalist four times before.

Gushing over the extravagant outfits, he remembered there was a bit during the dance where Stacey had cursed under her breath and he had to warn her not to swear on the BBC.

“There was a bit in the middle where she went wrong and underneath her breath she swore,” he chuckled, recalling the moment.

“You know it’s live but you can forget yourself!

But he reassured listeners that no one heard it because luckily the mic had been turned down while the couple performed.

“Underneath her breath she went, ‘Oh f**k!’ and I said to her, ‘Don’t swear on the BBC!'”

The trio laughed as his memories from his time on the show came flooding back after he announced his departure from Strictly earlier this year.

However, with coronavirus leaving the entertainment industry in tatters, rumours have surfaced that he might make a comeback.

He was last seen on the BBC show dancing with TV presenter Anneka Rice but the pair were booted out of the competition in week three.

The professional dancer felt it was time to focus on his theatre career and back in March, announced he would no longer be part of Strictly Come Dancing.

But according to a source, Kevin is reconsidering his exit and should BBC bosses want him back, he could be appearing in the 2021 series.

An insider said: “Kevin’s had conversations with the BBC and said he’d consider returning to the show in the future.

“He absolutely loves Strictly and is still a massive fan of the show.

“There was no bad blood between anyone when it came to Kevin’s departure and he’d be welcomed back with open arms if he wanted to return.

“Strictly was a massive part of Kevin’s life and it’s been great for him to know the door has been left open,” the unnamed source told The Sun.

Express.co.uk has contacted Kevin’s representative and the BBC for comment.
