Louise Redknapp says she hasn’t spoken to Kevin Clifton ‘in a long time’ amidst Stacey Dooley romance speculation

And why would she have done?

It’s nothing to do with her, like.

At the end of last month, Stacey Dooley revealed that herself and boyfriend Sam had decided to call it quits.

Citing her busy schedule for the reason behind their split, speculation around the supposed Strictly curse began to mount as people remembered that Stacey had been partnered with none other than Kevin Clifton, who had recently divorced fellow Strictly professional dancer, Karen.

Still with us? Good.

Over the weekend, Stacey’s ex, Sam, decided to come out and say that Stacey had been receiving intimate messages from Kevin while she was competing in the BBC competition.

Sam said he didn’t say anything about it at the time but proceeded to call Kevin a “rat” and accused him of being the reason why Stacey and he split up.

Stacey provided her own rebuttal on the scenario by wishing Sam all the best and saying that nothing had been going on between herself and Kevin until after she ended her relationship with Sam.

It was a whole thing.

And now, for some unknown reason, Louise Redknapp has been dragged into the whole debacle because she was Kevin’s partner on Strictly a few years back too – right before she announced her split from Jamie Redknapp.

Coincidence? Yeah, probably.

Louise was asked by The Sun what she thought of the whole Stacey situation and she was adamant (and correct) that it literally has nothing to do with her or her relationship to Kevin, which is non-existent now anyway.

“I haven’t spoken to Kevin in a long, long time and I’ve never met Stacey, so I have no idea,” she said.

“Everyone has a different experience, everybody does the show for different reasons, everyone is looking for something different. There are curses everywhere, no matter what job.”

Fair, Louise.
