Strictly Come Dancing’s Kevin Clifton sparks fears he may be LEAVING the show

Kevin Clifton sparked concern that he may be walking away from Strictly Come Dancing.

The pro dancer talked through his best bits over his time on the series – with everything from Susanna Reid to Kellie Bright covered in his history on the show.

But one thing fans were concerned about was whether this little segment on It Takes Two is actually a signal of his "departure" from the show.

Zoe Ball introduced the segment where Kevin shared some of his fondest memories.

As the segment aired, one fan said: "Uh oh, Kevin’s CV is being shown. Does this mean he’s leaving? # ItTakesTwo"

Another took their worries even further, asking: "I’ve come in half way through this feature. Has Kevin died or something…? (I hope not obvs) #ittakestwo #strictly"

The first memory Kevin shared was how he was made to wait a long time before he found out his celeb pairing: Susanna Reid.

    What does the winner get?

He described how Susanna’s famed Paso Doble cemented her place in the competition, compared to Saturdays’ Frankie Bridge the following year, who needed a bit of time to gain her confidence.

EastEnders’ Kellie Bright was a frontrunner from the very beginning, and Kevin certainly sung her praises throughout the segment as he praised her willingness to get stuck in, no matter what.

A lot went down with the pair of them, as Kellie was Kevin’s first dance-off partner, as well as his first set of full marks.

They also showed him performing with Louise Redknapp, who similarly struggled with confidence until the pair competely dazzled with their Argentine Tango, which saw Bruno Tonioli standing up in excitement while Craig Revel Horwood called it "fabulous!"

Following this partnership, he met his biggest fan yet – Susan Calman – who cried when she was paired with the marvellous dancer.

Sadly, this was not enough to see them get through any further than week 10, which was the first time he had not reached the final.

MirrorOnline has contacted BBC for comment.

It Takes Two airs weekdays at 6.30pm and Fridays at 6pm on BBC2.
