Strictly’s Craig Revel Horwood has given his blessing to Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton’s romance and has called it a “success story” rather than a “curse”.
Show judge Craig, 54, told The Sun: “It will be another Strictly success story. I never call it the Strictly curse, I call it the Strictly blessing. People need to fall in love. I hope they live happily ever after.”
Craig’s comments come after a torrid few weeks where Stacey and Kevin’s alleged romance was revealed by her ex-boyfriend, Sam Tucknott, who claimed to have found out about the pair after seeing a text from the 36-year-old professional dancer to his ex, saying ‘I love you’.
He went onto tell The Sun that he tried to confront Kevin over the text but, “He went white. I tried to stick it on him, ‘You’re an absolute rat, how you conducted yourself. Just a slippery, slimy snake’. He didn’t say a word, he looked petrified, so shocked.”
In response, Stacey tweeted:
Anyone with any adult life experience knows there are 2 sides to every story.
I haven’t got the time or energy to correct some of the utter nonsense I’ve read on here.
Re Sam, I loved him v much and only wish him happiness and success going forward.

According to the Daily Mail, Stacey recently liked tweets from the Laws Of Attraction account, about ‘do more of what makes you happy’ and ‘don’t let anyone make you feel less than you are’.
The so-called Strictly Curse has claimed several high-profile victims during the show’s 16 series. In 2009, ex-boxer Joe Calzaghe split from his long-term girlfriend, Jo-Emma Larvin, after getting together with dance partner Kirstina Rihannof.
Kristina later got together with rugby star and 2013 dance partner, Ben Cohen. She later rubbished the Strictly curse, saying simply: “People believe in various things like aliens and fairies, and maybe people believe in the Strictly curse.”
In 2013 Countdown host, Rachel Riley, split from her husband after appearing on Strictly and started dating her dance partner Pasha Kovalev.
Last year, comedian Seann Walsh was snapped snogging married dance partner Katya Jones.
