Kelvin Fletcher wishes wife Liz a happy Valentine's Day amidst Oti Mabuse dramaby Emma Kelly
Kelvin Fletcher is not letting the rumours about his marriage affect Valentine’s Day.
The 36-year-old kicked off 14 February with a sweet message to his wife of five years, Liz Marsland.
The reigning Strictly Come Dancing champion posted a selfie to Instagram, cuddling with Liz as they seemingly prepared to head out.
He kept the caption simple, writing: ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’, before adding a heart emoji and tagging his wife.
Liz – who has not re-followed her husband since unfollowing him last week on Instagram – has yet to post her own tribute, but Kelvin’s Strictly co-stars Neil Jones and Graziano Di Prima showed their appreciation by liking and commenting on the post.
Kelvin also shared a picture to his Instagram story showing off the handmade card and two roses left on the stairs for him and Liz by their three-year-old daughter Marnie.
The former Emmerdale star, also dad to one-year-old Milo, wrote: ‘Took Marnie to school this morning and we got a lovely little surprise… Her first ever Valentines.’
Speculation was rife that Kelvin and Liz’s marriage was on the rocks, after pictures of Kelvin enjoying a nightcap with Strictly partner Oti Mabuse at 3.30am emerged.
Liz unfollowed Kelvin on Instagram, and was later seen without her wedding ring.
However, the actress soon explained away her ring’s absence, writing on Instagram: ‘‘That ring is heavy. It only comes out on special occasions!
‘Oh and it was fake tan day. #Nodramahere.’
The couple, who tied the knot in 2015, were then pictured sharing a kiss at a train station, shooting down rumours that they were on the rocks.
Kelvin told The Sun: ‘Everything is amazing.
‘I am just a little bit bewildered by all the attention. But I am sure it will all blow over.’
An insider had previously told Mail Online: ‘Naturally Liz wasn’t happy after finding out Kelvin had been out late drinking with the Strictly lot.
‘It wasn’t easy for her to see him still out at 3:35am, while she’s at home looking after their two young children. Any woman would be upset if they were in the same situation.
‘In the heat of the moment she unfollowed him on Instagram, it was just a shock for her to see him out so late.
‘But now she’s had the chance to speak to Kelvin face-to-face after he came home and they’re spending today together, she feels silly for unfollowing him and admits she acted on impulse.’
However, the drama also reportedly has Strictly bosses worried that Oti, 29, will quit the show, with the dancer – who is married to Marius Iepure – allegedly devastated by the fallout.
