Kelvin Fletcher wife: How Strictly star SNUBBED anniversary amid Curse rumours
Kelvin Fletcher’s wife reduced the Emmerdale actor to tears ahead of tonight’s Strictly Come Dancing final with a sweet message. In a pre-recorded message aired on Strictly spin-off It Takes Two, his wife Liz Marsland said she falls in love with him “over and over again” each time she sees him dance.
She said: “Kelvin is incredibly generous, unbelievably hard-working and he is our absolute world. He is completely everything to us.
“I just fall in love with him over and over again every time I see him dance. Me and the kids, we are so proud of him.”
Fletcher, 35, struggled to hold back the tears while watching the sweet clip, dabbing at his eyes with a tissue as his wife – and childhood sweetheart – gushed about their love.
But despite the emotional outburst, just a few weeks Kelvin chose not to go home to mark his wedding anniversary – instead staying in London with dance partner Oti Mabuse.

A source revealed Kelvin didn’t go back to Manchester to celebrate his wedding anniversary with his childhood sweetheart
The insider told Heat magazine: “Oti knew it was Kelvin and his partner Liz’s anniversary and was happy for him to go to Manchester but he didn’t want to.”
His decision not to return home sparked speculation there could be a new Strictly romance, after last year’s Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton rumba-ed there way to love.
But ever the professional, Oti shut down any rumours.
The source said: “Oti was worried his decision may be seen as a reflection on the state of his marriage and the rumour mill would start up.
“She and Kelvin have a great relationship and are focused on doing their best.”

- Strictly Come Dancing: Karim Zeroual for crushing defeat?
EastEnders actress Emma Barton, 42, and CBBC star Karim Zeroual, 26, will go head-to-head with Kelvin during this Saturday’s glittering finale.
The remaining couples will each perform three times during the grand finale – a judges’ pick dance, their own favourite routine from the series and a new showdance.
For their favourite routines, Zeroual will repeat the jive to You Can’t Stop The Beat from Hairspray, and Barton will dance the Viennese waltz to the musical song Send In The Clowns.
While Fletcher will dance their samba to La Vida Es Un Carnaval by Celia Cruz from week one.

Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “It will be the biggest upset since David and Goliath if Kelvin doesn’t win Strictly Come Dancing this year.”
