In view of his some 277,000 Twitter followers he shared: "Wearing my Sunday best. Trainers that is! #SundayVibes."

Despite Kelvin seemingly ecstatic to spend time at his local, he has been keeping himself more than busy during lockdown.

He has shared glimpses into his intense home workout routines online, offering up plenty of fitness inspiration.

And he also has his very own man cave. His special room in his Greater Manchester home boasts its own bar.

He also recently invested in a race car simulator which costs an average of £5,830.

He played the character from 1996 to 2016.

However, he found further fame in 2019 when he competed on Strictly Come Dancing.
