Stacey Dooley has broken her silence after her ex-boyfriend claimed that she is dating her Strictly Come Dancing professional partner Kevin Clifton.
Sam Tucknott and the investigative journalist dated for five years before splitting after she appeared on the series.
In a tweet, Stacey, who won the show with Kevin, responded to the claims he made in the press over the weekend.
“Anyone with any adult life experience knows there are 2 sides to every story,” she said.
“I haven’t got the time or energy to correct some of the utter nonsense I’ve read on here.
“Re Sam, I loved him v much and only wish him happiness and success going forward.”
Sam alleged that he found a message from Kevin on Stacey’s phone saying, “‘I love you’ with a red love heart”.
He claimed that he confronted Kevin over the alleged relationship in a FaceTime call.
“He went white,” Sam told The Sun. “I just stuck it on him, ‘You’re an absolute rat, how you conducted yourself. Just a slippery, slimy snake.’
“He didn’t say a word, he looked petrified, so shocked.”
However, Stacey reportedly claimed that she was not with Kevin when she and Sam were an item, and only started the alleged relationship after the pair had split.
