Strictly's Kevin and Karen Clifton confirm split
Kevin and Karen Clifton confirm split after their three year marriage.
These dancers who have made it to the final 5 times on the BBC ONE show and thought it would be stressful to continue their professional relationship.
Spreading the word on the Chris Evans’ BBC Radio breakfast show, Kevin announced that they were still the ‘Best of friends’.
They just wanted to tell everybody that they were not together anymore, so that they were not questioning them about their relationship.
Rumours between the pair have been circling since the last series of Strictly. The show does not want to put a strain on relationships, and not a series goes by without reference to the infamous "Strictly curse". However, this couple, at least, seem to have been able to keep the split friendly, with Kevin admitting: "I still pretty much see Karen every day."
Would you become a strictly come dancer and be on television?
