‘I am not employed by the BBC.’ Since his departure from Strictly, Kevin Clifton claims he is free to be biased.
KEVIN CLIFTON has revealed who he thinks will win this year’s Strictly Come Dancing, and that being prejudiced is no longer a concern for him now that he’s left the BBC.
Following the announcement of the star-studded line-up earlier this month, Kevin Clifton, 38, revealed who he is rooting for to win this year’s Strictly Come Dancing. The former BBC One show dancer claimed that Dan Walker of BBC Breakfast has his vote, and that his judgment is not skewed because he no longer works for the channel.
I’m permitted to because I’m no longer employed by the BBC!
Kevin Clifton is a well-known actor.
It follows Kevin’s discussion on this year’s celebrity contestants, who are putting their best foot forward in the hopes of winning the glitterball trophy.
Dan has been rumored to be doing the program for a long time, but he has always denied it.
When his name was announced, viewers were taken aback, and they were eager to see how the father of three fared on the dance floor.
Kevin said of the BBC personality, “I feel like I’m going to be a little bit team Dan from the start,” shrugging before quickly adding that he’s allowed to have him as a favorite.”
He chuckled, “And I’m allowed to because I don’t work for the BBC anymore!”
“So, I’m permitted, and I think I’m going to be on Dan’s side since he’s a lovely guy.”
Kevin also revealed that for his girlfriend Stacey Dooley’s surprise birthday greeting, he gathered a group of prominent faces to send lovely notes to the journalist wishing her a happy day.
Kevin couldn’t have been more grateful to Dan, who was one of those who sent in a “beautiful” video greeting for the surprise.
He informed the audience, “That was incredibly good of him.”
Kevin and Stacey met on Strictly Come Dancing in 2018, where she was a participant, and they won.
Following the conclusion of the show, they began dating, and the rest is history.
After Stacey uploaded a romantic image in tribute to her beau, the singer rushed to Instagram to express his “heartbreak.”
The BBC journalist shared a gorgeous photo of her customized earrings, which she wore to support her dancer boyfriend while he performed in the West End.
