Speaking on BBC Radio 2, the former Strictly champion admitted he has become obsessed with watching the stars battle it out every weekend.“I’ve become like an obsessive fan,” he said.“When you were on it, after the show you would kind of look on social media and see what people thought of your dance through the comments.
“I used to think ‘gosh, these people are so obsessed with Strictly, and they’ve all got their opinions on every single dance and now that’s me.”He continued: “I’m watching the show and I’m like ‘I like this one better than that one’ and ‘why did the judges give that score?’.
“I really have turned into an obsessive Strictly fan.”When asked who he thinks will walk away with the infamous Glitterball Trophy this year, Kevin says that each contestant has a good chance.He added: “I feel like it’s really open this year. You could throw any of the names still left in the competition and say they are going to win this year. I can really see that.”
