Article: ‘Strictly was easy compared to the wedding!’ Karen Hauer shows off her glittering band as she and Kevin Clifton make first TV appearance as newlyweds

They tied the knot in a central London ceremony attended by their celebrity pals two weeks ago.

And Strictly Come Dancing professionals Kevin Clifton, 32, and Karen Hauer, 33, were still very much in honeymoon mode when they appeared on This Morning on Friday.

Karen happily showed off her gorgeous diamond wedding band and was particularly giddy as she discussed their special day on the ITV1 show.

The tactile couple grinned from ear-to-ear as they revealed the details of their romantic nuptials to co-hosts Marvin and Rochelle Humes.

Karen looked stunning in a navy, cap-sleeved pencil dress and explained she couldn’t wait to get to get down the aisle to her future husband because he makes her feel ‘safe’.

Kevin, however, admitted he was feeling slightly more nervous ahead of the nuptials, and said tying the knot made him more nervous than Strictly Come Dancing ever has.

‘I was more nervous than I’ve ever been,’ he said. ‘Strictly seems so easy compared to the wedding… You can’t perform, because everyone knows the real you.’

‘We had sweaty hands, I almost felt like I was going on a first date,’ added his Venezuelan wife.

But the couple powered though the nerves and Karen even managed to squeeze in a joke as they exchanged vows.

The brunette beauty, who has decided to take her husband’s surname, teased that she would love Kevin ‘for richer and richer’, and told him: ‘I’d love you in any form, as long as you buy me shoes.’

The couple met on a show called Burn The Floor with Lincolnshire-born Kevin teaching new arrival Karen some of the choreography before he left the show.

They ended up getting together much later on when Kevin returned to the show following a stint with Dirty Dancing.

Kevin auditioned for Strictly at the same time as Karen in 2012 but only joined the BBC One show for the following series.

He proposed to Karen on stage on her birthday in April 2013.

Strictly professionals Janette Manrara and Iveta Lukosiute were at the wedding along with Anton Du Beke, Brendan Cole, Aljaž Skorjanec and Robin Windsor.

Also in attendance were pregnant pop star Frankie Bridge – Kevin’s partner on the show in 2014 – and Good Morning Britain host Susanna Reid.

The happy couple were still relaxed enough to joke during the ceremony, and despite using “traditional vows” Karen was still able to give it a personal twist.

Whilst reading the heartfelt promises – with stars like Frankie Bridge and Susanna Reid in attendance – she said she would love him “for richer and richer”, instead of poorer.

She laughed: “I’d love you in any form, as long as you buy me shoes.”
