Earlier in April, Craig Revel-Horwood hinted that there could be further cuts to the show following Brendan Cole's shock exit, telling the Daily Star: "Everyone is replaceable, everyone. They could get someone else to replace me. They wouldn’t be as good though!" He also criticised Brendan for his reaction to the news - saying, "More fool him. The show’s done him wonders. It’s done us all wonders. It’s been fantastic. I would never complain about it. It’s given us all platforms on which to stand."

Kevin announced his split from wife of three years and dance partner Karen Clifton in March, but the pair remain the best of friends and will continue to dance together.
