He was voted out of this year's Strictly Come Dancing last weekend - but little did the fans know that it could have been Kevin Clifton's final dance on the show EVER.

The professional dancer left fans concerned over whether he'd be returning to the show one week after he left the competition with dancing partner Susan Calman, when co-star Oti Matuse seemed to hint that he wouldn't be on Twitter.

Taking to the social media site, she tweeted, “Most heart breaking fact is that @bbcstrictly has just lost its BEST CHOREOGRAPHER!!!

“Lots of love @keviclifton won’t be the same without you #myinspiration."

Kevin then replied, “So sweet thanks @OtiMabuse . U know I love your choreography. Loved everything u & @JonniePeacock did this year @bbcstrictly x.”

Despite the tweet seeming to be about last weekend's competition, Kevin's beloved fans weren't so sure.

One fan replied, "WAIT what kevin can’t leave," and another begged him not to go, writing, "Is he leaving for good????? No way, he can't! @keviclifton don't leave #strictly ...Why? You haven't been on for very long. What you going to do instead?! Can't believe it. Please re think".

Kevin is yet to reply to his fans comments, but the rumours come as it was revealed that his marriage to Karen has been under strain due to the show.

The pair are set to go on tour together in 2018 - but we hope Kevin will be back on our screens next Christmas too!
