Kelvin Fletcher has spoken of how his home life was “disrupted” by Strictly Come Dancing, which he took part in last year. The Emmerdale favourite lifted the Glitterball with professional partner Oti Mabuse in December.

The 36-year-old has now said that he is enjoying spending more time with his family during the lockdown after the BBC programme.

The actor is at home with his wife Liz Marsland and their two children: daughter Marnie, three, and baby son Milo.

In a new interview with this week’s Hello! magazine, Kelvin said he is taking the opportunity to relax with his loved ones.

He has been married to the singer/actress and long-time love since November 2015.

They have known each other since they were children but only got together when they met again around ten years ago.

Kelvin commented: “After an intense four or five months of regular family life being disrupted, to be at the other end of the spectrum, where I’m constantly at home, in a weird way, it couldn’t have come at a better time for me and Liz, and for the kids.

“We look back on the whole Strictly experience fondly, one we experienced as a family together.”

The star continued: “We’ve been together for many years and we’re so happy with each other, in our little bubble.”

Following his dance floor success, Kelvin revealed that he had been planning to take part in auditions over the past few months.

But that was until the “world hit pause” and the proposals were put on hold.

He recalled: “I had two or three weeks when I was auditioning and having productive meetings, then Covid hit.

“It has been a little frustrating as things were stopped in their tracks, but I’m treating it as an opportunity to reset and have a longer post-Strictly holiday than expected.”

Kelvin shot into the spotlight nearly 25 years ago when he auditioned for a role in Emmerdale.

After originally only being scripted to appear in three episodes, Andy was soon made a series regular.

During his 20 years in the soap, he won the likes of Best Actor and Best Dramatic Performance at the British Soap Awards.

Kelvin later moved into motor racing.

He wasn’t part of the original Strictly 2019 line-up, but stepped in to replace Jamie Laing.

The Made In Chelsea star had to quit due to a foot injury sustained in training.

The 31-year-old said at the time: “”I’m absolutely devastated that I’m unable to continue in the competition.”

Strictly Come Dancing is expected to return to BBC One later this year.
