Oti is said to have urged the 35-year-old to take Thursday off to celebrate his fourth year with his wife Liz Marsland. 

But the actor insisted on remaining in London so they could practice their And The Beast routine for Saturday's show, for which they achieved a score of 39.   

'Oti knew it was Kelvin and Liz's anniversary and was happy for him to go to Manchester, but he didn't want to. He takes the show very seriously and didn't want them to be behind the curve,' a source claimed.
