Kevin Clifton, 36, is best known as one of the professional dancers on Strictly Come Dancing. Last year, he lifted the Glitterball trophy for the first time, having made it to his fifth final, this time with celebrity partner Stacey Dooley, 32. Since then, the pair have struck up a romance and are now in a relationship. However, Kevin also has a business on the side, working as a property investor.
Speaking on Rom Moore’s The Disruptive Entrepreneur podcast, the Strictly star recently recalled a hilarious incident which occurred when he first attended a training course for investors.
“When I first came to Progressive, I went on one of the courses, the course that was about speaking,” he said.
“I was sat at a table with a group of people and we were sort of saying hello and things and I was really shy,” Kevin continued.
“People were going, ‘Hi, what’s your name?’ and I was going, ’My name’s Kevin.’ And this lovely lady next to me asked me, ‘What do you do?’”
The Grimsby-born dancer laughed as he said he told her he was doing buy-to-lets.
Kevin explained how the woman had gone on to quiz him about his property business, asking if he did it full-time.
