Champ Kelvin’s strictly en­joy­ing some fam­ily time

Manchester Evening News - - THE DIARY -

STRICTLY Come Danc­ing win­ner Kelvin Fletcher is en­joy­ing some qual­ity fam­ily time af­ter lift­ing the cov­eted Glit­ter­ball. The former Em­merdale star has been soak­ing up the sun in Dubai with his wife El­iza and two chil­dren Marnie and Milo be­fore Christ­mas.

Kelvin, from Old­ham, promised to jet his fam­ily away on hol­i­day af­ter tear­ing up the dance­floor on Strictly, and he kept to his word.

He joked that there’s never a mo­ment’s rest, but they’ve been lov­ing spend­ing time to­gether af­ter months of hard work on Strictly Come Danc­ing.

He shared a photo of him­self cradling Marnie pool­side at the Wild Wadi Water­park on In­sta­gram and wrote: “Not a mo­ments rest but who cares!”

An­other adorable photo showed Kelvin hold­ing Marnie while baby Milo poked a finger in El­iza’s open mouth.

“It’s not quite the #strictly dance floor ...... ” he said next to an­other snap of him­self leap­ing in the air on the sand on a desert sa­fari.

The photo sparked me­mories for his Strictly dance part­ner Oti Mabuse of their dance rou­tine to Trip A Lit­tle Light Fan­tas­tic from 2018 film Mary Pop­pins Re­turns.

“Mary Pop­pins would be proud,” she com­mented.

“I’m go­ing on hol­i­day next week with my fam­ily, just to get away for a few days,” he said af­ter his Strictly win.

“I’ve felt a lit­tle bit guilty be­ing away from them, so I def­i­nitely want to take them away, my chil­dren, just to see them and hold them.”
