Louise Redknapp Reveals She No Longer Speaks To Strictly Come Dancing Partner Kevin Clifton

Louise was asked about claims Kevin is dating Stacey Dooley.

Louise Redknapp has revealed she is no longer in contact with her former Strictly Come Dancing partner Kevin Clifton.

The duo were paired together in the 2016 series and made it to the finals of the programme, becoming good pals along the way.

However, Louise has now revealed that she hasn’t caught up with Kevin in quite some time. 

She told the Sun: “I haven’t spoken to him for a long time. Most probably since the show started. .. Not since last year.”

Louise was being asked about recent reports which have claimed Kevin is dating his 2018 Strictly partner, Stacey Dooley.

Over the weekend, the broadcaster’s ex-boyfriend, Sam Tucknott, said she was in relationship with the dancer.

Stacey soon hit back, reminding everyone there are “two sides to every story” but Kevin is yet to address the reports.  

Louise said: “I haven’t spoken to Kevin in a long, long time and I’ve never met Stacey, so I have no idea.

“Everyone has a different experience, everybody does the show for different reasons, everyone is looking for something different.

“There are curses everywhere, no matter what job.”

Stacey split with Sam, her boyfriend of five years, shortly after winning the glitterball trophy. 

Louise’s 19-year marriage to Jamie Redknapp ended after her stint on the show too, but the singer denied it was due to the so-called “Strictly curse”. 

The “curse” is a phenomenon that has seen celebrity contestants suffer relationship breakdowns after appearing on the show.

Stars that have split with their partners after taking part on Strictly include Countdown’s Rachel Riley and Coronation Street’s Georgia May Foote.
