Strictly Come Dancing couple Kevin and Karen Clifton faced speculation that their marriage was over after the professional dancer was seen without his wedding ring earlier this week.
In December, Karen was pictured with accountant Stuart Wood, reportedly leaving Kevin “heartbroken” and “unable to accept that their marriage was over”.
And hinting that everything is back on track, Karen took to Twitter to reveal their tour is going ahead as she mentioned Kevin for the first time on social media in months.

Sharing a photo of herself planning the upcoming 37-night tour, she wrote: “Production meeting today went ace. Holding down the creative fort strong whilst @kevinclifton is away on Strictly tour… #showtime #latinasbelike #imtheboss.”
Last week Karen, 35, broke her silence about her marriage and insisted she’s “happy” with her husband of three years.
“Kevin and I start our own tour in May which we are really looking forward to,” the 35-year-old told the Sunday Mirror.

“We are really excited and we are creating right now and just talking through everything.”
Discussing their marriage, the dancer added: “We are in an amazing family show on Strictly and at the end of the day we love what we do. People are going to be interested but at the end of the day we are happy.”
In December, it was reported that the couple, who have been together for over seven years, had been “keeping their distance”.

“But sadly the writing is on the wall.”
