Kevin Clifton is convinced that Stacey Dooley has fancied him for years before they met, and he may have just backed up his theory with solid proof.
The former Strictly Come Dancing pro, 37, made his relationship with Stacey, 33, public in April 2019.
The pair fell head over heels for each other during Stacey's stint on the hit BBC dance show when she got partnered up with Kevin.
But it seems as though she's had the hots for Kevin for a lot longer than we think.
An old tweet of Stacey's was unearthed this week that proved to be very interesting for Kevin to read – so much so, that he couldn't resist sharing it on Instagram.

"Ohhhhhhhh do tell stacey !" another curious fan penned.
Despite the fact the professional dancer has already been married three times, it seems as though Kevin has found his happily ever after with Stacey as the pair have been going from strength to strength.
Rumours of their close partnership circulated back in 2018, though the pair denied any romance was bubbling behind the scenes.

Stacey has previously spoken of how she and Kevin have chosen to keep their private life out of the spotlight.
Opening up to the Guardian about their relationship, Stacey said: "Kev and I have agreed not to go into too much detail about our private lives because you can't really indulge that and then ask for privacy.
"That's why we've turned down interviews that have offered us tens of thousands of pounds."
She went on to say: "What I am happy to say is Kev's amazing, I'm happy, life happens, I've got an amazing career, and I'm very lucky."
