Speaking of Strictly, which he won alongside Oti Mabuse, Kelvin said he auditioned three times for a spot on the series, but lost.

He said, “As an actor you are very used to rejection, but I always change it to redirect, I got redirected a lot.

“And then I got the call out of the blue to say that unfortunately someone had been injured and there was a place there if I wanted to. ”

Kelvin also revealed that his four-year-old daughter, Marnie, loved recreating her dances on the show with him, and he laughed at how proud she was of him.
