It’s no surprise that we’ve seen a lot of romances begin on strictly dance floor. With the weeks of close physical training, and the intimate dances evoking all sorts of emotions, many romances have begun, but how many have lasted beyond the confines of the strictly season?
First off, one relationship we’ve heard a lot about recently, due to an ‘expectancy’ is that of Rachel Riley from Countdown, and 8 out of 10 do Countdown. The 32 year old found love on the dancefloor with her Russian partner Pasha Kovalev. It wasn’t until Rachels previous marriage had broke down, that Pasha and Rachel romance ignited. It wasn’t until 9 months after the show, that they even announced their relationship. But not only did they have a secret marriage in Las Vegas, but they are also now expecting, with their first child.
Next up we have the most recent seasons blooming love between professional dancer Kevin Clifton and documentary star Stacey Dooley. Stacey woo’d us with her dancing during the strictly season. It was clear there was a real relationship developing between the couple, and when Stacey relationship with her current boyfriend broke down after finding texts from Kevin on Stacey’s phone, their split came very shortly after. Again after the strictly season, Kevin and Stacey stayed quiet about their romance, preferring to keep it very private, or as private as they possibly could. They’ve turned down a lot of interviews, but have stated, they are very happy in their lives, and both have great careers.
Kevin had previously been married to his professional dancing colleague Karen Hauer for over 3 years, although they have remained good friends.
