Stacey Dooley, 34, and her boyfriend Kevin Clifton, 38, are among millions of Britons who have been hooked on Married At First Sight Australia – the reality series which sees a group of singles agree to marry mystery partners chosen by a team of relationship experts. The Strictly Come Dancing pair appear to not be in any rush to get down the aisle.

The popular show became a hit with viewers during lockdown and twice-married Kevin admitted the couple binge-watched the series.

The pair, who won Strictly Come Dancing in 2018, often watched Married At First Sight until the early hours.

When asked if the marathons put him off marrying Stacey, the professional dancer confessed it had done.

“Yeah, probably. It seems like we’re about 74 episodes in and I am obsessed and addicted,” Kevin explained.

“You get more and more frustrated watching them and it’s like, ‘One more and then we are going to bed’. Four episodes ­later and it’s like 3am.”

After the couple scooped the Glitterball Trophy in 2018, months later the pair announced they were in a relationship.

Stacey previously dated her ex-partner Sam Tucknott for five years.

Kevin, who split from his ex-wife Karen Hauer three years ago, admitted he enjoyed his time in lockdown with his now girlfriend.

He continued to The Mirror: “We spent last year in the house together. She’ll be working all over the place with her documentaries, so I will miss her.

“Neither of us are that bossy. She sort of lets me do my thing.”

He added: “So I am either practising my part ­upstairs or I am ­watching football or F1, or whatever.”

Kevin first got hitched to amateur Latin world champion Anna Melnikova when he was just 20-years-old.

The pair were dance partners for four years and tied the knot in 2003.

Kevin later married trained ballet dancer Clare Craze in 2007 but the pair split two years later.

He wed his former Strictly co-star Karen in 2015 but the pair divorced in 2017.

Elsewhere, Stacey stunned fans as she hit the red carpet for the BAFTA TV Awards last night.

The presenter ensured that all eyes were on her as she graced the carpet at London’s Television Centre alongside co-host, Vick Hope.

Stacey showcased her physique in a low-cut dress as she put her pins on full display.

Her dress offered a plunging neckline, with her chest carefully protected by a bandeau-style top that attached to her satin dress.

Meanwhile, the presenter will join Sara Cox for BBC Show Between The Covers as they dish on their favourite books.

Between The Covers airs tonight on BBC Two at 7.30pm.
