Kevin Clifton, 37, was talking to his younger sister and former Strictly Come Dancing colleague Joanne Clifton, 36, on the latest edition of his podcast, when the revelation of Stacey’s Strictly Come Dancing improvisation was brought to light. The siblings were initially discussing Joanne and 2016 dance partner Ore Oduba’s week 4 jive when Kevin recalled that Stacey once added in an extra move to their foxtrot.

Stace did a couple of things

He said: Stace did a couple of things here and there, like in the foxtrot afterwards I watched back and went “Why did you do your hand like that?

“She was like, ‘Oh I was just enjoying that moment, and yeah things just happen in the moment’, like if you are really in the moment. 

“But yeah you couldn’t really fault this (Joanne and Ore’s) jive to be honest, knees were up, he (Ore) had bounce, the technique was there, energy until the end. 

“I mean you can always find something to critique it, you always can,” he added.

 Joanne commented: “Feet turned in slightly.”

Kevin continued: “There’s no such thing as perfection because that’s not the point.

“So the idea of it has to be perfect to get a ten doesn’t make sense to me.”

Previously ballroom champion Kevin questioned what he is doing professionally, as theatres remained closed and TV productions were suspended.

Kevin spoke out on his employment concerns during the increasingly “scary” time.

On an earlier episode of the podcast, the dancer divulged: “I’m sat here like, just left Strictly Come Dancing, coronavirus has hit so everything has been postponed.”

Joanne, on the other hand, has had little time for respite as she has continued to solidly work during the coronavirus pandemic,

The Rocky Horror actress told  I’m busier now than I was before! I’m really busy doing a whole course, me, Katya Jones from Strictly and Sasha Latoya whose an actress, we’ve put together this course called Beyond Lockdown Empire.

“It’s basically just getting people ready for when they get out of lockdown, getting them motivated.

“We’ve written a book about it as well which is going to be published and I’ve been writing my musical which is going to be published in July.”

The lockdown has seen many in the performing arts industry fear for their job security, as many roles in theatre and television have been cancelled or suspended.

Kevin replied to a recent tweet from Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden that announced the return of UK tourism.

He pleaded: “Holidays are nice but please can I still have a theatre career to come back to? We really need your help!”

Whereas his younger sibling has been waking every day before dawn to complete her increasingly packed schedule.

She explained: “I’m so tired, I’ve been up this morning, I’ve been playing tennis, worked out, I was on someone’s podcast, then I did a private lesson, then I did someone’s Instagram takeover, it’s just go go go.

“I’m busier now than if I was doing a theatre show, I haven’t got a minute spare.“

Theatres have been given the green light to finally reopen from today with socially distanced audiences.
