Strictly star Kevin Clifton has revealed some exciting new details about this year's line up.
The Strictly Come Dancing professional took to Instagram yesterday to tell fans he had a ‘wicked day’ shooting the official cast photos with his new partner.
However, despite finally being matched with his mystery celebrity, newly single Kevin admitted sometimes he finds the first day in the studio ‘awkward’.
Speaking to the camera, the 35-year-old confessed: “I’m usually quite awkward when we have to do all this because you don’t really know your partner yet and you have to do pictures with them and a couple of little moves and you haven’t done any training.
“And I can be a bit awkward with all that stuff, but no, I had a really nice day today.”
Spilling some exciting new details about the lucky lady he’s been paired with, Kevin said, “She is really lovely and she’s really easy to work with, lots of fun. I’m sworn to secrecy, I cannot tell you who it is.”
Before adding, “So you’ll have to watch the launch show at the weekend.”
Fortunately, we don’t have to wait too long to find out who the pros are going to be paired up with as they will finally be revealed on Saturday evening’s glitzy launch show.
And with the likes of TV presenter Susannah Constantine, Red Dwarf actor Danny John-Jules, Blue singer Lee Ryan and newsreader Kate Silverton in the celeb line up – we reckon it’s going to be a goodun’.
Despite keeping hush-hush about the first episode, Kevin – who recently split up with wife and Strictly co-star Karen – previously took a guess as to who he might soon be dancing with.
On Instagram, the star admitted, “I always have to look at heights because I’m one of the smaller boys. So, my guess is, I’m not sure, you can only judge when you meet them, but my guess is, and please understand I don’t know who I’m going to be partnered with, I swear on my mum’s life we have no idea who our partners are going to be.
“My best guess and bear in mind I usually get it wrong… So far based on height, either Katie Piper, Stacey Dooley or Ashley Roberts. I think the other ones I might not be tall enough for.”
