Kelvin Fletcher is hoping to channel John Travolta when he hits Strictly Come Dancing, with a special move up his sleeve.

The former Emmerdale star, 35, was recently announced to be Jamie Laings replacement for the latest series, after an injury forced him to pull out the competition.

Taking to the floor with Oti Mabuse, Kelvin has a specific vision of how his Strictly moves will come across when he hits the ballroom floor.

Ive got an idea of how Id love to look, Kelvin said. I want to be smooth, going around the dancefloor like John Travolta. But in reality that might not be the case!

Ive just got to work really hard. But I also want to really enjoy it, Im really looking forward to it.



Kelvin has a particular move up his sleeve to score viewer approval too.

Asked his signature move, Kelvin said: Probably just taking my top off! Every time Ive had a beer, thats something Ive done with friends.

All of my friends are all different shapes and sizes so its not even about how you look. I think its a Northern thing?

Kelvin, known for playing Andy Sugden on ITVs Emmerdale for 20 years, also thinks his co-stars might be shocked to see him on the show.
