Strictly Come Dancing might be off the air but the drama keeps on giving.
It came as a huge surprise to many (and some, not) when the 2018 winner Stacey Dooley's boyfriend Sam Tucknott announced to the world that Stace had dumped him for her dance partner Kevin Clifton.
While many had speculated while they were on the show that Kevin had become fond of Stacey, it seemed like she was happy in her relationship with Sam.
The pair had been together five years and lived in their Brighton home - however, Sam has revealed that he knew something was off towards the latter part of the dance contest.
Anyone with any adult life experience knows there are 2 sides to every story.— Stacey Dooley (@StaceyDooley) April 15, 2019
I haven’t got the time or energy to correct some of the utter nonsense I’ve read on here.
Re Sam, I loved him v much and only wish him happiness and success going forward.
Sam told The Sun that before Christmas Stacey had joined Kevin for an evening out rather than him and that Christmas Day was strained and tense.
The pair agreed to call it a day in March but Sam saw a message from Kevin on Stacey's phone that showed that they were in a romantic relationship.
It read, ''I love you'' followed by a love heart.
Stacey reportedly told Sam, ''You saw I didn’t start entertaining and texting him (Kevin) until I split up with you. I was not with you when we started it all. I did fall for him but when we were done. I will tell you anything you want to know.”
Now the 32-year-old investigative journalist has taken to social media to set the record straight.
She wrote, ''Anyone with any adult life experience knows there are 2 sides to every story. I haven’t got the time or energy to correct some of the utter nonsense I’ve read on here.''
She continued, ''Re Sam, I loved him v much and only wish him happiness and success going forward."
Kevin has yet to comment on the situation but with this being the 15th couple to fall foul of the show’s curse, it looks like Strictly is getting a bigger reputation as a sort of celebrity Tinder rather than a dance competition.
