Last month, the pair became champions of Strictly Come Dancing 2019.

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 a part of the show in the first place and then to walk away with that famous Glitterball was just insane."

During his time training for the show, Kelvin was forced to miss huge family occasions including his fourth wedding anniversary with wife Liz and his son Milo's first birthday.
