Kevin Clifton on Strictly’s need for an intimacy coordinator: ‘Who knows how celebs feel!’
Kevin Clifton, 38, admitted one thing Strictly Come Dancing lacks is an intimacy coordinator for dancing partners on the show. It comes as he chatted about the programme’s injury prevention specialist on his self-titled podcast, and admitted the BBC talent contest could do with someone making sure that all the celebrities coming on the show feel comfortable performing intimate routines.
He referenced musical comedy Rock of Ages, in which he plays Stacee Jaxx, pointing out the “edgy” show hired an intimacy coordinator to help with these specific scenes.
“It’s quite a raunchy show, it’s a bit edgy,” he giggled.
“So we worked with an intimacy coordinator for the first time.”
He went on to describe exactly what she did and how her presence helped the actors perform.

“Who knows how they feel going into it!”
Kevin revealed he’d asked the coordinator from Rock of Ages to come on his podcast to speak a little more about what she does, and he was keen for listeners to hear more about her role.
Elsewhere, Kevin teased who he’s backing to win this year’s show, admitting he isn’t biased because he no longer works for the BBC.
“I feel like I’m sort of going to be a bit team Dan [Walker] from the start,” he shrugged.
