Strictly Come Dancing star Kelvin Fletcher, 36, who won the show with Oti Mabuse, 29, last year, has been in lockdown with his wife Eliza Marsland and their two children Marnie, three, and son Milo, 18 months.
Kelvin’s wife, who he married in 2015, has said it’s been nice for the pair to spend quality time together, instead of having a packed working schedule.
She said: “Normally we’re like passing ships and everything’s chaotic. It’s nice to just stop and be a family of four.”
Kelvin added to Hello! Magazine: “After an intense four or five months of regular family life being disrupted, to be at the other end of the spectrum, where I’m constantly at home – in a weird way, it couldn’t have come at a better time for me and Liz, and for the kids.”
The former Emmerdale actor was back and forth to his family home for a period of time last year, when he competed in Strictly Come Dancing.

Thankfully, it paid off for Kelvin as he won the Glitterball trophy with Oti Mabuse.
Following his victory, he had auditions planned for TV, film and theatre projects, but these are yet to go ahead due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“It has been a little frustrating as things were stopped in their tracks,” he added.
“But I’m treating it as an opportunity to reset and have a longer post-Strictly holiday than expected.”
Kelvin also went on to say that the pair look back on his Strictly experience “fondly”, despite hitting a few headlines after his win.
He said the pair are in their own “bubble” and are “so happy” together.
Back in February, the actor was spotted at a hotel with his ex dance partner in the early hours of the morning.
At the time, a source told the Daily Star: “It was perfectly innocent… they wanted to have a few more drinks and the bar was still serving.

“There were other people, such as Bradley Wiggins, in the bar. They are just friends.”
After hitting the headlines, Kelvin’s wife reportedly unfollowed him on social media.
The pair were later pictured putting on a defiant display as they shared a kiss and a cuddle at a train station.
Days later, his wife was spotted without her wedding ring on, but she immediately slammed claims that their marriage was on the rocks.

She added: “Oh and it was a fake tan day #Nodramahere.”
