Stacey Dooley, 34, and Kevin Clifton, 38, met on Strictly in 2018 and the rest became history. The two lovebirds announced they were moving in together after they confirmed their relationship following the end of the show, which they also won, but the former BBC professional dancer admitted he’s left all the interior design stuff in their new place to the journalist. And she couldn’t have been happier with that.
While chatting to fellow Strictly stars Aljaz Skorjanec and Janette Manrara on their Twist and Shout podcast, Kevin openly admitted he isn’t one with an eye for detail like that.
And while Janette, who has been recently appointed as the new host on sister show It Takes Two, was eager to come round and see what Stacey had done to the place, Kevin was at a loss.
“All I hear is, ‘side return, side retune, side return,'” he moaned.
Shrugging, he explained: “When we moved in, she started to talk about it and I said, ‘Look, I don’t really have an opinion on interior design enough.'”
“To her, the house was a project. And I see what she’s done and it’s definitely better, but I’d have happily lived in it the way it was, it doesn’t bother me!”
But while he remained quite placid about the whole thing, the journalist was stunned.
“She can’t believe it,” he added, “she was like, ‘Are you mad?!’
