Meanwhile, it comes months after Kelvin revealed that he was struggling to find work.
The actor previously starred as Andy Sugden in Emmerdale, before departing the soap in 2016.
In a previous social media post, Kelvin opened up on the hardships after being turned down from several jobs.
He said: “A friend of mine, an actress, just messaged me and said, ‘I can’t even get a [bleeping] self-tape.’ So I know how frustrating those little selfies are, because I’ve been that person thinking, ‘Are they even working now.’
“Let me tell you, I’ve had about 10 nos in these last few months.”
However, Kelvin has still had plenty of success in recent years.
The star was previously crowned winner of Strictly Come Dancing in 2019.
