STRICTLY Come Dancing star Stacey Dooley was spotted giving Kevin Clifton’s bum a cheeky squeeze after their performance tonight as her boyfriend Sam Tucknott watched from the audience.

The telly star was caught on camera giving her partner a friendly pat on the bottom as they finished their Charleston tonight.

Stacey, 31, wore a flapper-style dress for her first dance of the night with Kevin, who split from fellow pro Karen Clifton this year.

They wowed fans with their show-stopping routine, and they gave each other a big hug after it was finished.

However, as the camera panned around it showed Stacey squeezing Kevin’s bum before they walked over to face the judges.

Stacey’s boyfriend Sam was spotted watching from the audience days after we revealed he’s feeling “insanely jealous” of Stacey’s close friendship with Kevin.

An insider told us: “Sam has been quite vocal about her dancing with a single man and was really paranoid that they were going to split because of the show.’

“[Stacey] says he has become insanely jealous even though she insisted there was nothing for him to worry about.”

The pair received huge support from fans at home tonight, who had hoped the judges would award them their first 40 but they had to settle for a score of 39.

Tonight all eyes were on Ashley Roberts, 37, after the drama of last week’s show, when she cried on camera after finding herself in the dance-off for the second time.

The Pussycat Doll is paired with Pasha Kovalev on this year’s series, and some fans think her professional dance background in the pop group gives her an unfair advantage.

Last week host Tess Daly waded in on the row and defended her, saying: “I’m sure Ashley’s never done the Viennese waltz in her career with The Pussycat Dolls.

“I think cut her a little slack… she hasn’t necessarily danced in ballroom before.”

Whoever survives this weekend will be heading to the final and pro dancer AJ Pritchard  told The Sun Online his partner Lauren Steadman deserves to be there.

AJ, 24, explained: “We might not be at the top of the leaderboard because of what Lauren’s experience is but I feel that we connect with the audience.

“And I hope we’re at the top of the leaderboard in the public’s eyes.

“Lauren’s had her moments, she’s been at the bottom of the leaderboard for two weeks, and she’ll tell me she thinks no one wants to see her dance again.

“But just because you’re at the bottom of the leaderboard, it’s about the people at home that are supporting you! It’s trying to use the positives the show brings, life is too short. We have to look at that.

“Lauren is a world champion athlete! She’s not a dancer. But she’s worked so hard and she’s proved she’s worthy of a place in that final.”

At the end of last week’s show, which saw Ashley saved after ending up in the dance off again, viewers threatened to boycott the show.
