Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton’s ‘romance sparks fury’ amongst Strictly cast
Kevin Clifton and Stacey Dooley's alleged romance has reportedly sparked 'anger' amongst their Strictly Come Dancing co-stars.
Kevin, 36, only split from fellow Strictly pro Karen Clifton in 2017 while Stacey's now ex-boyfriend Sam Tucknott was a set regular, cheering her on from the audience each week.
And according to reports, the rest of the cast and crew were outraged when they began to suspect something was going on whilst on the Strictly tour earlier this year.
"Stacey was a really popular member of the group but when she started getting closer to Kevin it upset some dancers and celebrities. As far as they were concerned, she did still have a boyfriend," a source tells the Sun, claiming Stacey, 32, "didn't hide the fact she wasn't happy at home."
Kevin couldn't join the tour due to prior commitments on Rock Of Ages, but was still a "regular feature", claims the insider.
"Everyone believed romance was blossoming between them Kevin was a regular feature. He'd cheer Stacey on when he could, then spend time with her and the other sat the hotel," the source continued.
"Stacey would spend a lot of time speaking to Kevin and about Kevin with the others. At first it seemed she was being that way because he was her dancer partner and couldn't take part in the tour. As time passed everyone suspected something might be going on. But no-one called them out."
Stacey and Sam split earlier this month, and Sam, 30, has now claimed she's moved on with Kevin.
He alleges to have found a receipt for cupcakes Stacey sent to Kevin on the opening night of his new show in Glasgow.
And on April 1, Sam says he discovered a text sent to Stacey by Kevin which read, "I love you."
Kevin has yet confirmed or deny the claims.
But Stacey – who apparently insists nothing happened between her and Kevin while she was still with Sam – has said there are "two sides to every story."
"Anyone with any adult life experience knows there are 2 sides to every story," she tweeted.
"I haven’t got the time or energy to correct some of the utter nonsense I’ve read on here.
"Re Sam, I loved him v much and only wish him happiness and success going forward."
