KELVIN Fletcher’s wife Liz Marsland says watching his sexy dances with Oti Mobuse “doesn’t bother her”.
The former Emmerdale actor, 35, has left judges and viewers alike flustered with his sensual dances on the BBC dancing show.
But fellow actor Liz – who he married in 2015 – doesn’t worry about how close they’ve gotten, as she says it’s all a part of the show.
“It doesn’t bother me. I’m used to seeing him kiss Britain’s sexiest females on Emmerdale,” Liz told Hello!.
“I know the biggest part of a dance is the story and making it believable. I understand it’s a performance. Although I can imagine it’s difficult for people who aren’t in this industry.”
The couple share two children together, Marnie and Milo.
Kelvin and Oti have been close friends since the start of the competition and it appears Liz doesn’t have to worry about the Strictly curse this year.
Last month, it was reported Oti was angry with Kelvin after he missed his four year anniversary with his wife.
Despite her urging him to take the day off, Kelvin refused and insisted on staying in London to rehearse.
A source told The Sun: “All the celebrities were encouraged to be in London this week as that’s where the backing dancers are based.
“Oti knew it was Kelvin and Liz’s anniversary and was happy for him to go to Manchester, but he didn’t want to.
“He takes the show very seriously and didn’t want them to be behind the curve.”
They added: “However, Oti was worried his decision may be seen as a reflection on the state of his marriage and the rumour mill would start up.

“She hates the idea people could whisper about them being struck by the Strictly curse. She had a bit of a meltdown about it.”
The pair are favourites to win the competition as they head into the final alongside Karim Zeroual and Amy Dowden, as well as Emma Barton and Anton du Beke.
