Strictly star makes return in hilarious wayBBC

Strictly Come Dancing fans were delighted tonight (Tuesday, October 31) as a former pro returned, looking a bit different.

Kevin Clifton appeared on It Takes Two tonight to fill in for his younger sister Joanne on the Choreography Corner segment, which had been renamed 'Kevin's Choreography Corner'.

And since it was Halloween, Kevin got in the spirit by dressing in costume. Fans were asked to vote on Kevin's costume, getting to choose between The Joker, Chucky and Wednesday Addams.

Of course, fans chose Wednesday, and Kevin appeared wearing a black dress with a collar and sporting a long, black, plaited wig.

Fans were overjoyed to see Kevin return to the show, especially while looking so good.

One fan wrote on X (formerly Twitter): "Kevin Clifton as Wednesday Adams - priceless. Please come back to Strictly properly Kev, you're brilliant."

Another posted: "Watching #ItTakesTwo and you realize just how good Kevin Clifton is. I miss him off #Strictly."

Kevin left Strictly after the 2019 series, having spent seven years on the show and lifting the Glitterball trophy in 2018 with Stacey Dooley, who he'd eventually begin a relationship with.

The couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Minnie, in January.

Back in August, Kevin appeared on Loose Women, where he was asked if he'd ever return to Strictly.

"I love the show, I love Strictly Come Dancing and it's been a massive part of my life," Kevin said.

"I did it for seven years. There's still a part of me that says 'never say never' about going back to it, maybe in a different role, who knows? But for now, everything is theatre for me.

"If [Anton Du Beke] wants to move aside, or any of the others, I'd happily be a judge on Strictly Come Dancing!"

Strictly Come Dancing airs on Saturdays and Sundays on BBC One, while spin-off Strictly: It Takes Two airs on weeknights on BBC Two. Both shows are available to stream on BBC iPlayer.

Tickets for Strictly's 2024 live arena tour are available now.
