As Kevin Clifton and Susan Calman said their final goodbyes after being eliminated from yesterday’s Strictly, he took the moment to apologise to his wife. 

Losing to Alexandra Burke and Gorka Marquez in the dance-off, Kevin confessed: “When Strictly is on I’m not the easiest person to live with. I go a bit mad.

“So I’d like to say first of all thanks to my wife for putting up with me.”

Kevin lasted slightly longer in the competition than his wife Karen Clifton, who is also a Strictly professional dancer - and left just a few weeks ago with TV presenter Simon Rimmer. 

On his departure he called his fellow dancer and comedy talent, Susan, “the absolute epitome of joy and happiness”.

Whilst Susan added: “We got far further than we thought. Most of all I’ve made a friend for life. Kevin’s won Strictly for me.”
