There is no doubt that Strictly Come Dancing bosses are thrilled to have Kelvin Fletcher in the show, with the former Emmerdale actor wowing with his Salsa moves on Saturday night. But to take part in the BBC One dance competition, Kelvin had to make a sacrifice in his career, as the 35-year-old was due to play the lead role in Aladdin at St Helens Theatre Royal in Merseyside in December. Now that he is in Strictly, the Pantomime have had to replace him. Luckily, things have worked out well as ex-Strictly pro dancer Robin Windsor has been hired to star in the show instead. Robin was a popular pro on the show, having been partnered with stars including Lisa Riley and Patsy Kensit.
