The dad-of-one donned a black velvet dress with a white shirt collar, paired with white knee-high socks and black pumps. He also sported Wednesday's signature hairstyle with a black braided pigtail wig. Kevin finished off the look with black eyeshadow, drawn-on freckles and a light pink lipstick.
Kevin appeared on the show to present Choreography Corner, a segment usually hosted by his sister Joanne Clifton, that sees the star review the previous week's choreography.
After the programme aired, the Grimsby-native marked his Strictly return with a post on Instagram. "Good to be back. Thanks for having me @bbcstrictly #ItTakesTwo," he wrote alongside a series of screenshots from the episode.
Fans were delighted to see Kevin back on their screens and took to the comments section to praise his return. One person wrote: "Was great to see you back, only you could pull off a look like that," while another added: "Looking good Kev! Welcome back to Strictly!"
A third follower added: "So so good to see you Kev, you smashed it! (Especially the dress)."
Kevin left Strictly fans devastated when he announced his departure from the show back in March 2020.
"Since first being called 'Kevin From Grimsby' by Sir Bruce Forsyth in 2013 I have experienced the highs of 5 finals, winning a Guinness World record on It Takes Two, the Strictly Arena tour glitterball and then the ultimate of winning the 2018 series with Stacey Dooley," he said in a statement at the time.
"After finishing last series with the Children in Need trophy and the Christmas Special I want to leave on a high and have therefore decided the time has come to move on and focus on other areas of my life and career."
The couple confirmed their romance in July 2019 and moved in together the following year in April 2020. Then in August 2022, the lovebirds announced that they were expecting their first child together and just a few months later, their baby daughter, Minnie, arrived in January.
Speaking about his experience as a first-time dad during an appearance on BBC One's Morning Live, he said: "I'm obsessed, I'm absolutely obsessed.
"We've just completely fallen in love with her. I do feel a little bit guilty sometimes when I'm on the road. Like I miss them as they're obviously at home, but I do get a night's sleep."
