Kevin Clifton and Stacey Dooley may be apart thanks to her work on the Strictly Come Dancing Live Tour, but that didn't stop him from spending the evening with her on Wednesday – sort of. The pro dancer curled up on the sofa to watch her latest documentary on whaling, called Stacey Dooley Investigates: The Whale Hunters. Ever the supportive boyfriend, Kevin shared a snap of Stacey on the TV screen, captioning the Instagram post: "At home with a lemsip watching @sjdooley doc on whaling."

Kevin's followers were touched by his show of support and also concerned about his seemingly poor health. One commented: "Get well soon Kev! I love how you’re sooooo supportive of her." Another said: "Your gal is brilliant no doubt about it... such a hard worker too Kev aye." And a third simply added: "Her biggest supporter."
