The victory of the professional dancer was just as special for him as for his partner Stacey Dooley, because Kevin came in the final four times before without winning the prize.
Kevin's reaction was so great that he fell to the floor and remained immobile for a few seconds, leaving Stacey fourth with Joe Sugg.

Keith, who discusses the dramatic moment, told Grimsby Live: his knees pinched. He was so relieved. It was shock and relief. It was a long breath.
& # 39; He had been in four previous finals. He was over the moon, not only for himself but also for Stacey. He placed 14-hour days throughout the series to try and make her a fantastic dancer.
Stacey wanted to be the best she could be and he was willing to help her completely. & # 39;

It is no surprise that you have been in the final as often as you have. It is frightening to do something you have never done before.
