Stacey Dooley, 34, had said that her and partner Kevin Clifton always end up arguing when they are at home over filming a “self tape”. The TV and radio presenter commented that it is always “such a saga” to film.

Filming a self tape with Kevin is such a saga. We always end up arguing.

The couple spoke together on the BBC podcast Stacey Dooley: Fresh Starts about Kevin’s new acting and musical role in Singin’ In The Rain, following the dancer’s departure from Strictly Come Dancing.

Kevin, 39, was quick to refute girlfriend Stacey’s claims that filming a self tape was difficult.

The professional dancer playfully suggested that it was only difficult because of Stacey, not him.

Stacey said: “Filming a self tape with Kevin is such a saga. We always end up arguing.”

The dancer then went on to explain the purpose of self-tapes.

“Because of COVID we couldn’t do many in-person auditions so we had to film us doing the scene at home and send it to (the producers),” he said.

He went on to explain that Stacey always wants to be “so involved” in the scene and act it out fully.

He added that scenes need to be read in a normal voice during the self-tape, but Stacey insists on using a silly accent.

“Don’t do it like that, because I’m never going to get the job and they’ll this is ridiculous,” he joked.

Kevin noted that Stacey also always uses unnecessary dramatic pauses.

Stacey has recently commented on Kevin’s role in the hit musical and her fears before going to watch him perform.

She said of her experience watching the show: “I was worried about how far away the interval felt.”

Not too bothered by Stacey’s remarks, Kevin, who was paired up with now-girlfriend on Strictly in 2018, quipped: “You’re not a theatre-goer are you?”

However, Stacey retaliated, calling Kevin “extra” for the way he treats her when they go on a date to the theatre.

She said: “I hate it – whenever I go to the theatre with Kev, he’s so extra because it’s his world, it’s his scene, and he really enjoys it, he doesn’t want to be distracted in any way.

“He talks to me like I’ve never been to the theatre before, like I’m totally unaware of the etiquette.

“So he’s like, before we’ve sat down, once we’ve sat down, just before it’s about to start: ‘Have you turned your phone off?’

“And I’m like, ‘Kev, I understand!’”

Kevin Clifton played Cosmo Brown in Singin’ in the Rain earlier this year.
