The dancing on Strictly may be over for another year, but the rollercoaster of highs and lows that comes with it shows no sign of slowing down.
Professional dancer Karen Clifton, 35, and fellow pro Kevin have been rocked by rumours about their marriage this year.
And it’s now reported that Karen has flown to the USA to spend Christmas with her family – without Kevin.
For his part, it’s said he has been spotted getting closer to Louise Redknapp on a recent night out in London.
Louise is going through a breakup of her own right now, with her 19-year-marriage to Jamie Redknapp seemingly over after the couple announced they were to divorce.
Karen recently took to Instagram to share a series of cute snaps with her young nieces.
It’s said Karen will spend the holiday season in New York, while Kevin stays with family in the UK.
The couple married in July 2015, but have seen their relationship placed under a burning spotlight over the last few months.
Kevin is thought to have been getting too close to Louise Redknapp – with whom he danced in the 2016 series.
While it’s been reported that Karen had embarked on an “affair” with a 27-year-old US-based accountant named Stuart Wood.
Although the alleged romance came to an end when Stuart returned to the USA with Karen reportedly trying to patch up her marriage.
Jamie, Louise, Karen and Kevin had previously all been friends, and were seen together enjoying a meal last year.
But the friendship came crashing down when Karen reportedly told Jamie to “keep his wife away from” Kevin.
Heavens above! With all this confusion, it sounds more like a plot in EastEnders than Strictly!
