While many were quick to applaud Kevin for his new job, some fans questioned whether the role means he’ll be saying goodbye to Strictly.

Commenting on a picture Kevin shared, which features him with his fellow All Star Musical judges, one fan said: ‘Does that mean u aren’t going to be doing strictly?’

While another remarked: ‘Does this mean you won’t be on strictly @keviclifton ???? 

With another worried fan adding: ‘Please tell me, you’re not leaving strictly?’
