Love is all around…
The Strictly star, 36, was the first to comment on fellow dancer Karen’s stunning Instagram post, which sees her pose with a lovely bouquet of flowers as she celebrated turning 37 on Saturday.
Captioning the snap, she said: ‘Feeling very special on my birthday .. Thank you for all your lovely messages.. #birthdaygirl #37 #what #sunflower#olderandwiser.’ See the photo HERE!
Rushing to send his best wishes on her special day, Kevin commented: ‘Happy birthday U. Have a wicked one.’
Kevin’s message comes after he paid tribute to fellow Strictly partner and new ‘girlfriend’ Stacey, during a touching speech on the opening night of his new stage show Burn the Floor.
In the speech, Kevin admitted that he’s struggled with ‘upheaval’ in his personal life.
He said: ‘In the last couple of years I’ve seen massive upheaval in my personal life and it hasn’t always been easy.
‘There have been a lot of things thrown at me. At times I’ve struggled. And the times I’ve struggled and I was in a bit of a rut I didn’t know what to do.’
Speaking about the negative publicity surrounding his personal life, Kevin added: ‘It gets difficult and I’m not the best at dealing with it.
‘But at that point Burn the Floor stepped in again and the producers gave me a call and said, “Why don’t you come home.” So it felt right and I came home.
‘And thanks to Miss Stacey Dooley, I can finally say I’m the Strictly champion after six years of trying. It’s a miracle.’
The adorbs message of course comes amid rumours of a romance between Stacey and Kevin – after Stacey’s ex, Sam Tucknott, claimed that the documentary maker had ended their five-year relationship to be with Kevin.
After Sam’s claims, Stacey herself took to social media to reveal that there are ‘two sides’ to every story.
She wrote: ‘Anyone with any adult life experience knows there are 2 sides to every story. 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.’
Neither Kevin nor Stacey has commented officially on the rumours of their romance.
