The news of Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton's romance may still be a shock to Strictly Come Dancing fans, but meanwhile the pair have hit a huge milestone.
The documentary maker, 32, has already met pro dancer Kevin's parents, and been on an intimate visit to his home in Grimsby.
Cosying up with 36-year-old Kev's proud mum and dad, the rumoured couple looked picture perfect in a resurfaced snap taken last month, just days after her split from Sam Tucknott hit the headlines.
The home visit came as she headed up North to take part in a show for the Kevin Clifton Dance Academy.
At the time, the Glow Up presenter told Grimsby Live: "This is Kev’s hometown, his stomping ground, and he was the most amazing partner to me.
"People have been so sweet and kind to us. The people of Grimsby were instrumental to us.
"We don’t take it for granted, we know that people really did get behind up and picked up the phone and we really appreciated that. Genuinely."
Stacey went on to claim that she was certain she wouldn't have won the dance competition if it wasn't for Kev.
The pair are the latest to seemingly prove the 'Strictly curse' after her ex boyfriend allegedly found 'I love you' texts from the dancer on her phone as they packed up their flat.
Sam, 30, said: “I was getting my stuff to leave. Stacey was in the loo. Her phone went and it was Kevin Clifton – ‘I love you’ with a red love heart.
“I grabbed the phone and confronted her. She said she’d tell me everything.”
She later reportedly texted him insisting she and Kevin only started their relationship after they had split up in December.
Strictly insiders said it was “no surprise” Stacey and Kevin had got together. A source who worked on the BBC1 hit, said: “On the show itself they were very, very close.
“Kevin is very charismatic to say the least. It’s little wonder that he and Stacey’s friendship has moved on to a new level.”
But the discovery of Kevin’s text left Sam, a personal trainer, devastated – even though in Stacey’s eyes their relationship had ended on Boxing Day following a row after a Christmas Day lunch at his family’s home.
Stacey today hit back at the reaction to Sam’s revelations, tweeting: “Anyone with any adult life experience knows there are 2 sides to every story.”
