The dancer’s comments come after she recently revealed how the pair have been keeping occupied during the current lockdown, which she admits she found difficult to adjust to at first.

She told The Mirror: “I usually have my routine set for me, whether Strictly’s being filmed or I’m on tour, so it was hard at first to adjust and find a new structure and focus to keep me going throughout the day.

“I never get to have that much time at home because of my work schedule, so spending time with David and our three dogs has been quite a good thing.

“I’m staying busy, staying positive and taking it day by day.”

Karen went on to say that the pair have been trying to stay occupied for the sake of their physical and mental health.
