Kevin Clifton hints there 'wasn't much to ruin' in girlfriend Stacey Dooley's relationship before their Strictly romance

KEVIN Clifton appeared to blast girlfriend Stacey Dooley's relationship with her ex Sam Tucknott in a cryptic post.

The 36-year-old dancing professional started dating his celebrity dance partner shortly after the pair were crowned Strictly Come Dancing 2018 champions, but he has hinted Stacey's previous romance was on the rocks long before he sparked up a relationship with her.

Kevin – who split from wife Karen last year – liked a cryptic post about partnerships on Instagram hinting he was not to blame for Stacey and Sam's break up.

Lifestyle guru Jay Shetty uploaded a quote to his Instagram account which read: "Any relationship that could be 'ruined' by having a conversation about feelings, standards, or expectations wasn't really firm enough anyway, so there isn't much to ruin."

Jay captioned the post: "Don’t try to keep the other person by avoiding tough conversations because then you’ll lose yourself.

"The No1 thing that makes a relationship last is not date nights, fancy vacations or gifts but actually 'knowing how to fight.'"

He continued: "Knowing how to communicate in conflict is such a valuable skill for our relationships."

Kevin and Stacey took home the Glitterball trophy in the 16th series of the programme, but weeks after lifting the trophy the documentary maker confirmed she had parted ways with Sam in March after three years of dating.

Shortly after the split, Stacey announced she had moved on with Kevin.

But Sam did not take the news lightly, and has since blasted Kevin and branded him an "absolute rat" for ruining his love life.

Stacey retaliated insisting there are two sides to every story.

Taking to Twitter, she wrote: "Anyone with any adult life experience knows there are 2 sides to every story. I haven’t got the time or energy to correct some of the utter nonsense I’ve read on here. (sic)"

But she went on to wish the personal trainer "happiness and success" in the future.

She wrote: "Re Sam, I loved him v much and only wish him happiness and success going forward. (sic)

Stacey has since been booted out of her home with her ex, and is now living with Kevin.

The couple have sparked speculation they could be taking their relationship to the next level as Stacey has recently been pictured with a ring on her engagement ring finger.
