Actor - Racing Car driver -  Strictly come dancing winner

Who is Kelvin Fletcher?

Kelvin was born on 17th January 1984.

He is an actor best known for playing Andy Sugden on Emmerdale for 20 years.

When Fletcher first appeared on Emmerdale, he was only scheduled to be part of the show for three episodes, but was soon offered a longer contract and went on to become one of the most popular characters on the show.

He also won best actor and best dramatic performance at the British Soap Awards.

Alongside acting Kelvin is also a motor racing driver and is currently competing in the British GT Championships.

Kelvin stormed to victory on Strictly after initially not being part of the show.

On September 8, 2019 it was revealed that Kelvin would be replacing injured Jamie Laing on Strictly.

He was partnered up with Oti Mabuse, who was originally paired with Jamie and the couple danced their way into the hearts and minds of fans across the country.

Speaking about signing up to the show, Kelvin said: "I can't believe it, it's a dream come true. Those who know me, after a few beers, I love music and I love to dance, but that doesn't mean I'll be any good!

He was certainly more than just good, as the 35-year-old made his way to into the final three and dropped just two points on the leaderboard in the final after performing three dances, one of which was the Samba which he performed excellently in week one.

Kelvin and Oti embraced one another and could not hold back the tears after becoming the seventeenth couple to win strictly Come Dancing.

They defeated finalists CBBC presenter Karim Zeroual and EastEnders actor Emma Barton to win the show.
