She captioned it: “It’s been a long time Vitamin D.”

It’s been said that Karen has been holidaying with her new man, opera singer David Webb.

The dancer recently opened up about remaining close friends with her ex-husband Kevin Clifton following their split in March last year after three years of marriage.

During an interview with Hello! magazine, Karen admitted: “Having love in my life is a beautiful thing.

“Kevin and I went through a lot this year, but the fact is we are supportive and stay positive and can be kind to one another, despite what people probably wanted.

“They most likely couldn’t believe that we would still be really good friends and wish the best for each other. I have a lot of love for Kevin and respect for him.”

Meanwhile, Karen was over the moon for Kevin when he won Strictly last month.

Gushing over Kevin and his dance partner Stacey Dooley, Karen wrote on Instagram: “Our 2018 @bbcstrictly champions! @keviclifton & @sjdooley. So proud and extremely happy for you guys.”

She addressed Kevin, 36, directly, writing: “Kev – 5x finalist and you finally did it!! Your hard work, patience and pure brilliance paid off. So proud of you x.”
