The second shot shows the family of four as Marnie looked like she was shouting while Milo tried to put his finger in Liz's mouth.

Kelvin captioned the post: "Not a moments rest but who cares!"

I definitely want to take them away and just see them and hold them.

It comes after the star told Hello! magazine: "I'm going on holiday next week with my family for just a few days. I've felt a little bit guilty being away from them so I definitely want to take them away and just see them and hold them.

"I'm going to go and cuddle my wife, cuddle my mum and dad and my brothers are here. I think I need five minutes just to take stock really.

"It still feels just so surreal, and when you don't expect something and it happens it's just really quite hard to take. I wish I had more words in my vocabulary to explain how I feel."

Earlier this month, Kelvin was crowned the winner of Strictly alongside his professional partner Oti Mabuse.

Speaking about his win during an appearance on Heart Breakfast, Kelvin said: "It still feels quite surreal. I remember standing there Saturday night and just before they announced the winner I was thinking, 'what am I doing here? This is just crazy.'

"It's just been amazing. I think it will take a few days to sink in. I just feel so privileged to have been apart of the show in the first place and then to walk away with that famous Glitterball was just insane."
