If anyone had asked us where is Grimsby before September 2013, we’d have probably shrugged our shoulders and looked extremely confused, a little like this guy:
but then the wonderfully talented Kevin (from Grimsby) stepped onto Strictly’s dancefloor and put Grimsby well and truly on the map!
Today just so happens to be his birthday, and we think he’ll be celebrating getting through to this week in the competition. We hope he gets the chance for a break and some cake too.
As you know, we like to give you all a birthday dedication on your special day, and today’s Monday memory comes from this year’s launch show. It is his dance with his lovely fiancée, the wonderful Karen Hauer, to 5SOS’s Amnesia. We loved this dance and it did make us very teary, but it also is a celebration showcasing what amazing dancers these two are. It seemed the perfect dedication to Kevin for his birthday.
Happy Birthday Kevin! Here’s your birthday Strictly fix. Have a fantastic day and hope the year ahead is full of success and all your (glitterball) dreams come true.
