Kevin Clifton explains night out in high heels as he’s ridiculed

Go on Kev!

| Updated:

Kevin Clifton looked incredible as he stepped out in a pair of platform heels for an awards do – and it turns out he had a very good reason to…

The pro dancer, 41, was a regular on Strictly Come Dancing for seven years. However, in 2019, he left fans gutted when he revealed he was quitting. Since his exit, it’s fair to say he has not stopped. He is also set to star in the smash hit musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.

And on Sunday (February 11) Kevin was on hand to present an award at the What’s On Stage Awards. But it was his ensemble that got plenty of people talking.

The dancer oozed confidence as he struck several poses on the red carpet. Kevin took to his Instagram to share a slew of snaps from his night out – including a close-up shot of his heels.
