Karen Clifton shows off bold new hair do after 'wanting to drop Kevin's surname'

‘Kevin and Stacey insist they only started dating officially this month but Karen is still annoyed he wasn’t more honest about the situation.’

The insider added: ‘She had been considering changing her name for a while but this has cemented her decision.’

Earlier this month, Stacey’s ex-boyfriend Sam Tucknott claimed she was dating the dancing pro.

He recalled the moment he saw a text on Stacey’s phone from Kevin as they were preparing to move out of their flat.

‘I was getting my stuff to leave. Stacey was in the loo,’ he said before adding: ‘Her phone went and it was Kevin Clifton. I grabbed the phone and confronted her.’

‘She said she’d tell me everything I needed to know.’

He went on to say that Stacey told him she didn’t start ‘entertaining’ the 36-year-old until they had split up.

‘I did fall for him but when we were done,’ Sam claims the presenter said. He replied: ‘I don’t hate you Stacey. I hate what you’ve done.’

Kevin is yet to address the rumours, but has since praised Stacey after performing at his dance show Burn The Floor in Southport.

Here he said: ‘In the last couple of years I’ve seen massive upheaval in my personal life and it hasn’t always been easy.

‘There have been a lot of things thrown at me. At times I’ve struggled. And the times I’ve struggled and I was in a bit of a rut I didn’t know what to do.

He added: ‘But at that point Burn The Floor stepped in again and the producers gave me a call and said, “Why don’t you come home.” So it felt right and I came home.

‘And thanks to Miss Stacey Dooley, I can finally say I’m the Strictly champion after six years of trying. It’s a miracle.’
