The 36-year-old actor made a huge deal with the annual Sheffield Lyceum panto, taking on the role of the Prince later this year.

He will star alongside CBBC presenter Sam Nixon, and the panto is set to run from December 4 to early 2021.

The news comes after the 'Strictly Come Dancing' winner splashed out on £150,000 Bentley last month after signing up to a five-day cruise trip with former dance partner Oti Mabuse where they will teach holidaymakers how to dance.

Oti, 29, took to Instagram to reveal the pair will team-up once again as part of an exclusive holiday experience in New York with Imagine Cruising where they will lead the lucky guests on a "very special routine" in one of New York's most prestigious hotels before joining them to a black tie dinner event.

'Team Floti' will teach holidaymakers to quickstep across the dancefloor over three nights in the big city before they embark on a seven night cruise back to England.

Alongside a video of the two talking about the trip, the Oti wrote: "Team Floti on @imaginecruising

"I'm very excited to announce that I will be teaming up with my dance partner again, @kelvin_fletcher for a very special event with Imagine Cruising in New York on the 13th June. This exclusive event is the start of a holiday of a lifetime which will see you fly to New York for 3 nights where you will join us for a dance extravaganza!"

Meanwhile, the former 'Emmerdale' star - who is best known for playing Andy Sugden for 20 years - decided to leave the soap opera in 2016 to pursue other opportunities.

Although he has ruled out a return to the ITV show in the future, he would be up to making an appearance on rival show 'Coronation Street'.

He recently said: "I'd love to go back to a soap. 'Coronation Street' would be great."
