Strictly Come Dancing's Stacey Dooley weighs in on Kevin Clifton engagement rumours

Following rumours of an engagement between Strictly Come Dancing's Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton, Dooley has addressed the speculation on The One Show.

Speaking to Lauren Laverne and Jermaine Jenas on the BBC series, Dooley said categorically: "I'm not getting married."

This came after Laverne asked Stacey whether she would be throwing herself an engagement party after taking home the Glitter Ball with her dance partner and the "love of your life" Clifton.

"You don't have an announcement that you're building towards?" she asked. "Would we be the first to know?"

Laughing, Dooley responded: "You would absolutely be the first to know, but no, I'm so dull. I'm not getting married."

The rumours were sparked after the TV presenter shared a photo on Instagram of her and Clifton during their holiday in Sweden, which appeared to show a thin band on her ring finger.

But it was hard to tell whether it was an engagement band or not, as it was tucked beneath her chin and overshadowed by a ring on her pinky finger, leading to many questions.

Many comments on the photo asked Dooley whether they were keeping their engagement a secret.

The couple won 2018's season of Strictly Come Dancing and got together soon after, following Dooley's split from her boyfriend of five years, Sam Tucknott, and Clifton's divorce from fellow Strictly dancer Karen Hauer.

Neither one have expressed a desire to get married anytime soon, though Clifton did joke earlier this year that watching Married at First Sight Australia had put him off tying the knot again.

Clifton has also mentioned that Dooley is his best friend, even during the COVID-19 lockdown, saying that he would miss her now that she's back to working on her documentaries across the world.

Strictly Come Dancing airs on BBC One.
