Stacey Dooley leaves hotel with Kevin Clifton as pair sneak in early practice ahead of Strictly final

The documentary maker and her pro headed off to practise as they gear up for the final this weekend.

The 31-year-old looked in good spirits despite the early start and clutched a coffee as they headed to the studio.

This Saturday, the four remaining couples will each perform three times during the glittering finale – a judges' pick dance, their own favourite routine from the series and a new showdance.

Stacey and Kevin’s foxtrot to Jeff Beck's Hi Ho Silver Lining, which saw them top the leaderboard with 33 points in week four, has been chosen as their judges' pick for the Grand Final.

The documentary filmmaker and her partner will do their showdance to Land Of A Thousand Dances by Wilson Pickett.



Their third choice will be revealed on the evening as they battle it out for the Glitterball Trophy.

Stacey is currently the favourite to win after Bookmaker Coral cut her odds on to 1-2 (from 4-7).

Joe Sugg (3-1) and Faye Tozer (8-1) are next in the betting, whilst Coral have Ashley Roberts as the 33-1 rank outsider to go all the way.

Over the weekend Stacey’s boyfriend Sam Tucknott, who has been dating her for three years, appeared emotional as he watched her in action.

It comes after The Sun revealed that Sam, who is personal trainer, was feeling “jealous” over her relationship with Kevin.

A show source revealed: “Sam has also been quite vocal about her dancing with a single man and was really paranoid that they were going to split because of the show.

“She says he has become insanely jealous even though she insisted there was nothing for him to worry about.

"Kevin and Stacey are very close, as is inevitable through the course of a show like Strictly, but they’re just trying to focus on winning the series.”
