Kevin Clifton, 37, was crowned the champion of Strictly Come Dancing two years ago and more recently on the BBC Christmas special last year. The ballroom professional chatted with his dance partner Debbie McGee, 61, where he revealed in the past “I didn’t want to compete anymore”.
Speaking on BBC Radio Berkshire with Debbie last week, the Strictly star spoke candidly about working with his sister Joanne Clifton, 36, and his busy lifestyle.
Kevin admitted despite being a pro dancer he has always wanted the opportunity to explore different avenues - from theatre to music and singing.
He explained: “Me and Joanne got different partners but we never competed against each other. My sister competed in the ballroom and I competed in the Latin.
“Later on, I got to a point where I didn’t want to compete anymore. I wanted to explore more things, like theatre and all of that.”

Kevin continued: “So in 2008 I joined a show called Burn The Floor which is the world’s premiere ballroom dance company.
“I went on tour with Burn The Floor all over the world from Broadway to the West End. I then moved into more musical theatre because I like singing as well. I’m all over the place.”
Debbie replied: “That’s the thing that fascinates me about you and Joanne because you do have this ballroom and Latin background. But you appear like all-round trained dancers. Plus, you both can sing.”
Kevin’s comments come after he announced via Twitter that he’ll be going on tour with his sister for Burn The Floor.
