“So I absolutely expect, and I hope, that people watch me and Oti and see whatever narrative it is – whether that be that we’re in love – I want people to believe it.”

Kelvin also reckons that Liz, with whom he shares children Marnie and Milo, would agree with his intimate dance tactics, “If there’s not that feeling there, my wife will be the first person to pull me up on it, because she absolutely wants to believe it too.”
