Kevin Clifton hasn't been asked back to "Strictly Come Dancing" yet.

The 36-year-old professional dancer was crowned the winner of the BBC One ballroom and Latin show with television presenter Stacey Dooley last year, and he's hoping to be back for the next series later this year.

However, he's revealed that he's still waiting to be phoned up by the producers to renew his contract.

He told BBC Radio Humberside: "They ask us, and probably in the next month or two they'll start making phone calls to everyone to talk about the next series and whether they want you back on the show or not.

"You're never contracted to more than just the series that you're on.

"Hopefully, they'll give me a call and say, "We'd love to have you back for the 2019 series", and then I'll be doing that from August to Christmas."

Despite lifting the glitter ball trophy with the 31-year-old documentary maker, Kevin admitted: "You never want to count your chickens."

Kevin previously admitted that dancing with Stacey had made him "fall in love" with dancing again following his split from ex-wife Karen Clifton.

He said: "I just want to say thank you to you ... you helped me fall in love with dancing again."

The Grimsby-born hunk also admitted he never thought he would win last year.

He said: "I was so excited. It was amazing because I didn't expect it at all.

"My parents were sat to the left of us and I thought because we were bottom of the judges leaderboard and Craig had hammered us a bit, I thought, "Well there's no chance we're gonna win".

"I actually looked over to my mum and dad and gave them a little "Oh well there's that then", and they gave me one back because they didn't think we were gonna win either so we just had this little moment.

"Me and Stace are stood there not even bothered, cool as a cucumber, we didn't think we were gonna win and when Tess said "Stacey and Kevin", my mum and dad shot up and started screaming and my knees gave way and I dropped to the floor."
