Strictly Come Dancing winners Kevin Clifton, 37, and his girlfriend Stacey Dooley, 33, have been staying together during the lockdown following the coronavirus pandemic. The Grimsby-born performer took to Twitter and he revealed he hadn’t “cried so much” after watching a particular programme.
Kevin revealed he is a keen viewer of Ricky Gervais’ Netflix series After Life which recently premiered season two.
In view of his 251,000 Twitter followers, he wrote: “Finished #AfterLife2 last night. The last time I cried this much was at the end of #Afterlife1 . Just beautiful . Thanks @rickygervais.”
Fans inundated the former Strictly performer with comments, as they echoed a similar sentiment.
One person said: “I started to watch it last night but only made it to the end of episode one. Feeling a bit too emotionally fragile to resume it today, But full of admiration for @rickygervais for creating a series which tackles the issue of grief head on and with such raw honesty & humour.”(sic)

Another person commented: “Literally this minute finished sobbing at the ending.”
While a third person added: “We’ve been watching two episodes at a time because it’s all the crying we can take!”
“Me too! I went between sobbing and laughing the whole series. Simply brilliant!” a fan of the show tweeted.
After Life follows Tony, whose life is turned upside down after his wife dies from breast cancer.
Going through a series of emotions the protagonist decides to live long enough to punish the world for his wife’s death by saying and doing whatever he wants.
Elsewhere, Kevin recently announced he will be leaving Strictly Come Dancing after seven years on the BBC programme.
The ballroom champion has now revealed he is in the process of writing his own play.
Speaking on his self-titled podcast, The Kevin Clifton Show, the dancer teased his plans.

“I have been watching a lot of the streams of theatre online,” he explained.
“I have been having a lot more creative ideas so I have started writing a play.”
Kevin admitted he feels at home writing compared to strutting his moves on the dance floor.
He told fans: “Maybe that is more truthful to my set of values and what I want to do with my life.”

Kevin added: “I have done an online writing course. I have been writing some of my own stories. Potentially that could end being a biography of sorts.”
The professional dancer was previously married to his Strictly co-star Karen Hauer in 2015 but the couple split three years later.
Kevin has since embarked on a romance with Stacey after the couple won Strictly in 2018.
Strictly Come Dancing is due to return to BBC One later this year.
