Strictly Come Dancing 2019 Kevin Clifton to lose as no male professional has won twice? | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV


Kevin, 36, was finally granted victory last year when his dance partner Stacey Dooley, 32, won Strictly Come Dancing and the prestigious Glitterball trophy.

The champions were crowned after Kevin had made it to the final four times previously, but just lost out on the pole position.

With this year’s line-up fully complete, the rumour mill has already gone into overdrive with fans os the BBC dance show predicting Kevin will be partnered with Michelle Visage, 50.

Although Kevin is a popular face on the programme, his win last year could very well have sealed his fate this time around.

Since the show began back in 2004, there have been all manner of winners, from soap stars to sporting legends and pop sensations alike.

They have only reached their success due to the commitment and dedication of their professional partners willing to train all hours to reach the Glitterball.

Over the years, there has only ever been one professional to claim the coveted title twice.

Former professional Aliona Vilani, 35, scooped the crown alongside McFly superstar Harry Judd, 33, back in 2011 and then again with The Wanted frontman Jay McGuiness, 29, four years later in 2015.

Despite Aliona’s success, no other female professional or any single male skilled dancer has ever won the show twice.

Adding to the statistics, no professional has ever claimed the crowning succession, putting Kevin’s chances of victory this year on thin ice.

However, two other female professionals have a dual championship title on the show with former star Lilia Kopylova, 41, and Janette Manrara, 35, have won two Christmas editions of the programme each.

Lilia is the most successful professional dancer in the show’s history, having won the winning title of the regular edition in 2005 with Darren Gough, 48.

Former male professional Darren Bennett, 42, previously won two editions of the festive specials but failed to secure victory of the regular show.

Whereas his fellow former star Brendan Cole, 43, has one win from the regular series and one win from the Christmas edition.

With no male yet to win the Glitterball trophy twice, does these statistics suggest Kevin will its out on the crown this year?

In other Strictly news, Alex Scott MBE, 34, is the current front runner to win the series according to latest odds from the bookmakers.

Alex is leading the way with Coral bookmakers, as her chances of taking the crown from Stacey currently stand at 5-1.

Hot on her heels however is former Coronation Street star, Catherine Tyldesley, 35, who sits behind at 6-1.

Speaking of the odds, Coral spokesperson Harry Aitkenhead said: “It won't be long until Strictly is back on our screens and excitement is starting to build over the 17th series of the popular show.

“We make ex-England women's footballer Alex Scott the early favourite and we think she will have all the skills necessary to tackle the challenge and lift the Glitterball Trophy.”

Strictly Come Dancing returns next month on BBC One.
