Strictly’s Kevin Clifton grimaces after suffering wardrobe malfunction on stage

Kevin Clifton says he’s too old and hanging up his dancing shoes

Former Strictly Come Dancing professional Kevin Clifton, 40, has revealed he suffered a wardrobe malfunction while performing live on stage at the Theatre Royal in Glasgow.

Kevin, who won the 16th series of the BBC show with partner Stacey Dooley, 36, is currently on a UK-wide tour with Strictly Ballroom: The Musical.

Based on the Baz Luhrmann film, the theatre performance has been directed by Craig Revel Horwood and stars the 40-year-old as Scott Hastings, an “arrogant, rebellious young ballroom dancer”.

However, Clifton has admitted that during last night’s show, he had a “mishap” with his costume.

On Tuesday, a fan who had been to see the musical took to Twitter to praise the dancer, but queried whether his trousers were “falling down” during the final number.

They wrote: “@kevinclifton was at the Theatre Royal Glasgow tonight, what a brilliant show & a great performance. (sic) Were your trousers falling down at the end lol!”

The actor retweeted the question and replied: “We did have a slight mishap with the last quick-change,” along with grimace and laughter emojis.

Since the Strictly Ballroom: The Musical tour began, fans have come out in their droves to praise Kevin and his co-star Faye Brookes, 35, for their performances.

One show attendee wrote: “@faye_brookes #kevinclifton and all the cast singing and dancing #strictlyballroomthemusical @BGETheatre last night most enjoyable evening thank you.”

Another said: “Went to see @keviclifton in #strictlyballroom last night in Glasgow and wow what a show, what a very talented cast and Kev has the voice of an angel.

“Still got those awesome ballroom moves, I have been looking forward to it for a long time I certainly wasn’t disappointed.”

A third simply commented: @keviclifton amazing #strictlyballroom in Glasgow. Superb!”

The Grimbsy-born groover left the BBC dance show in March 2020, after competing for seven years.

Announcing his departure, he took to Twitter and wrote: “The past seven years have been some of the most wonderful of my life.

“I am grateful to the BBC and Strictly Come Dancing for giving me the opportunity to have been part of something truly special.”

In August 2022, Kevin and Stacey announced that they were expecting their first child together — who they welcomed in January 2023.

Announcing the arrival of Minnie, the TV personality shared a picture via Instagram of an envelope addressed to “Minnie’s parents”.

In the caption, Stacey wrote: “Our daughter is here. My little masterpiece! I’m COMPLETELY OBSESSED. Love you Minnie, Love you Kev.”
