It was Musicals week and Kevin and Stacey danced to I Dreamed A Dream from Les Miserables. Kevin was the hero, Jean Valjean, and Stacey Fantine.

The judges were bowled over by the moving routine, which saw four other dancers help the couple out. Bruno Tonioli and Shirley Ballas gave the couple 10, while Craig Revel-Horwood and Darcey Bussell went for nines.

Fans loved the dance, but some were more taken with Kev’s new look.

One tweeted: “@keviclifton should really grow that stubble more often.”

“How handsome was Kevin with his Jean Valjean facial hair,” asked another.

“Loving Kevin with a bit of facial hair,” added a third.

While a fourth declared: “Moved to tears and also a fan of Kevin’s facial hair.”

“Kevin looks attractive with a beard! He should 100% keep it,” said someone else.

Their dance had many viewers calling for Kevin to win the show after making the final and not winning four times.

“Totally missed the mark for me… Just felt a bit odd,” tweeted one.

“Too much faffing about,” added another.
