Stacey Dooley, 34, and Kevin Clifton, 38, met on Strictly Come Dancing in 2018 and embarked on a romance months after the dancing duo lifted the Glitterball Trophy. The documentary-maker has since dished on the couple’s relationship with fellow professional dancer Karen Hauer, 38.

The Strictly champion spoke candidly about Kevin’s ex-wife and explained they have an “amicable” relationship.

The Venezuelan-born dancer tied the knot with Kevin in 2015 but the couple announced their separation three years later.

Following their split, the former couple continued to work alongside each other on Strictly until Kevin announced his exit from the BBC show in 2020.

Stacey has now revealed that being civil with a former flame is one of the traits that she loves about Kevin.

In a new interview, Stacey explained: “It’s actually one of the things I really love about Kevin.

“He and Karen have always been really amicable. Karen and I have always been really amicable.”

She added to Daily Mail’s You Magazine: “We toured the country together for the show. We’re all grown-ups.”

Karen has also been vocal in recent weeks about her split from the Grimsby-born performer.

The Strictly dancer confessed that their break-up “turned nasty overnight” and she admitted she wanted to make her marriage work.

“I was getting jealous. I was only jealous because I wasn’t getting the attention I wanted from my husband”, Karen told The Divorce Club Podcast earlier this year.

She explained: “Obviously, other things happen, there are other factors that happened, that really hurt us both.

“But I thought… I would have never let go of it. I wouldn’t have never, never let go of it.

“I would have liked to have fought for it. It took me a year after we separated to actually let go of him.”

Prior to Stacey’s relationship with Kevin, she had been dating her boyfriend Sam Tucknott but the couple split in 2019 after three years together.

Stacey spoke highly of the former couple’s relationship and remarked that she wished the best for Sam.

It comes after the BBC presenter addressed her ex’s criticism of Kevin and explained she never wanted a “slanging match” with Sam.

Stacey told the same publication: “I was in America when that happened and I’d had no idea it was going to be all over the front pages.

“I just thought, ‘I need to take a moment and not react.'”

She went on: “I didn’t want to get into a slanging match. Because there was a time when I really loved Sam. I adored his family. And I still really want what’s best for him.

“I just… feel like I’ve grown a lot. I feel so much more mature than I was then. I want him to have a brilliant life.”
