Both Kevin and his celeb partner Stacey Dooley, 31, were answering fan questions during a break from rehearsals when one question took the dancer by surprise.

"Kevin come and marry me?" asked a fan.

"Oh is that a serious offer?" asked a taken aback Kevin, adding: "Trust me, that’s a bad idea!"

As Stacey burst out laughing, Kevin continued: "I can tell you now that’s a bad idea."
