Kevin Clifton has paid a gushing tribute to his rumoured girlfriend Stacey Dooley.

The 36-year-old dancer - who was partnered with Stacey during "Strictly Come Dancing" in 2018 - has admitted to recently enduring a turbulent period in his personal life, and has also thanked Stacey for helping him to realise his ambition of winning the BBC show.

Kevin - who split with wife Karen Clifton in March last year - told the Daily Mirror newspaper during the first night of the "Strictly" tour: "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."

Kevin also admitted it's been tough dealing with personal troubles while living his life in the spotlight.
