Stacey and Kevin returned to Strictly for a one-off performance after being crowned champion of the series last year.
The star enthusiastically shared photos from the studio, along with her proud mother Di and partner Kevin.
Kevin and Stacey caused shock waves in April when it was revealed that they were dating, but since then have kept their relationship out of the spotlight.
Their relationship has been marred by controversy because she was in romance with personal trainer Sam, 30, for five years when she was on the show.
It was reported that Sam confronted Kevin with his relationship with Stacey in a furious FaceTime call after the death of their relationship in March.
Sam claimed to be Kevin a & # 39; snake & # 39; and a & # 39; rat & # 39; when he discovered flirty text messages that were sent to his ex after they broke up.
