Strictly Come Dancing winners Stacey Dooley, 33, and her boyfriend Kevin Clifton have been staying together during the lockdown following the coronavirus pandemic. The documentary filmmaker opened up about the Grimsby-born performer’s love of wrestling in a new interview.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live with Scott Mills and Chris Stark, Stacey addressed whether her partner would be taking up a new career wrestling.
The Strictly winner also admitted although Kevin has a love for the sport, she is not “willing to get on board”.
Scott asked: “So he’s into wrestling isn’t he? When we did the Strictly tour that was all he talked about.”
His co-star Chris commented: “He needs to get into wrestling. He’ll have an amazing role like ‘The Dancer’. He could dance around the ring couldn’t he?”

Scott quizzed: “But he’s a dancer?”
Stacey replied: “This is it. He’ll entertain me. I put Tina Turner or Gloria Estefan playlist.
