It has been claimed that the presenter, 32, hinted she and Kevin could cash in on big money projects, amid claims the pro felt he’d become ‘too big’ for the BBC show. 

A source told The Sun Kevin’s decision to quit Strictly shocked show bosses given that he’d become one of its most beloved pros.

The insider said: ‘ Kevin’s decision came as a real shock to many of those involved in the show. But the fact is he just thinks he’s bigger than it now — even though it’s what put him where he is today.’  

They added: ‘He’s told people he thinks he’s now a bigger star than the celebrities on the show, and Stacey has been encouraging him to go out on his own too. She thinks they can be a bit of a TV power couple. 

‘Bosses were shocked that somebody who has benefited so much from the show wants to walk away. But fame and fortune has obviously turned his head.’
