In view of his 376,000 followers, Kevin shared a picture alongside his castmates including his younger sister Joanne Clifton, 36, who is also on the tour.
In a lengthy message, he wrote: “Burn The Floor 2020 UK tour postponement.
“On behalf of Burn The Floor and Strictly Theatre co. We have made the decision to postpone the 2020 UK tour, following the recent advice from the government.
“We are working closely with all of the venues to reschedule the tour for June and July.”

He continued: “At this time we do not have any more information but please rest assured we will update you as often as we can.
“The venues will contact all ticket holders in due course to inform you of the next steps.
“Please note this may take some time. In the meantime, take care and we look forward to seeing you all soon.”
Fans and celebrity pals alike flocked to comment on the post, as many expressed their disappointment.
Kevin’s girlfriend Stacey replied to the announcement, with a heart emoji.
A fan wrote: “Postponed is better than cancelled. We’ll be there.”
“We will be cheering you on opening night when you’re back!” another person replied.
A third social media user added: “Nevermind, all for the best to keep people safe. We can have something to look forward to after we all come out of this.”
Kevin’s news comes after the Government announced measures to encourage social distancing following COVID-19.
The recent coronavirus pandemic has seen a recent surge in cases of the virus across the country.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson urged the British public to avoid mass gatherings on Friday night as he demanded establishments where they may occur remain closed over the weekend.
During his press conference on Friday, he said: “These measures are intended to be temporary. I am confident, in time, the UK economy is going to bounce back, of course, it is.

“We need to now push down further on that curve of transmission between us.
“So, following an agreement between the four nations of the United Kingdom and devolved administrations, we are collectively telling cafes, bars and restaurants to close tonight as soon as they can.”
The Prime Minister continued: “But I must be absolutely clear with you, the speed of our eventual recovery depends entirely on our ability to get on top of the virus now.
“That means we need to take the next step on scientific advice and follow our plan.”
