Strictly’s Kelvin Fletcher shares the secrets behind his ripped figure as he transforms from a slim actor to a muscular hunk in sizzling snaps
Strictly Come Dancing star Kelvin Fletcher has shared the secrets behind maintaining his ripped figure in a series of throwback snaps.
The soap star, 35 – who first rose to fame as a baby-faced teenager on ITV’s Emmerdale – began detailing his impressive transformation on Instagram two years ago, and has since adopted a strict exercise routine in order to preserve his figure.
Racing driver Kelvin – who is currently partnered up with pro Oti Mabuse on the BBC competition series – is no stranger to stripping off to display his incredible physique, both on social media and on the small screen.

In December 2017, the Heartbeat star underwent an intensive training programme with personal trainer David Green.
Taking to Instagram at the time, the Full Monty star – who played Andy Sugden for 20 years on Emmerdale – explained: ‘Session 2 workout is more strength focused and mainly composed of compound lifts in contrast to my hypotrophy days.
‘I’m working at around 75-85% on these days and although I have no specific rep number I have to hit on paper, I do have a specific rep target I’m aiming for on the first set of each exercise. If I hit it, I add weight the following week, if I fail to hit it I simply keep the weight the same the following week and aim to come closer or beat it.
‘Note – with that in mind I’m never training to absolute failure, my coach has me working to a reps in reserve system (RIR) and rarely asks me to push to failure.

‘Most of my lifts on strength focused day’s are performed with 2 reps left in the tank so I’m fresh for my next session and maintain a high training volume across the week. This is particularly important if you’re following a full body training set-up like me.’
Alongside his acting and professional race driving duties, the hunk – who shares daughter Marnie, two, and son Milo, nine months, with wife Liz – has managed to keep up with his workout routine, and even stripped off for charity show The All New Full Monty earlier this year.
The media personality has added dancing to his regime ever since kicking off his Strictly journey earlier this month.

Meanwhile, Kelvin has reportedly had an x-rated video leaked from his time on Emmerdale.
According to The Sun, the actor flashed his privates and performed 15 naked star jumps in the clip – leaked from a WhatsApp group chat with his pals.
It comes as Kelvin has been taking to the Strictly dance-floor with pro Oti and after their stellar Samba last week, once again the pair earned a solid response with a romantic Waltz.
According to the publication, Kelvin was asked by his pals to film the naked video inside his dressing room, and the 29-second clip sees him perform the star jumps naked before playfully striking a pose.
A source said: ‘He never thought the clip would be shared with anyone outside that WhatsApp feed — but unfortunately he has been proved wrong.
‘I’m not sure Kelvin would want it coming out now he’s on a family show like Strictly.’
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Kelvin Fletcher for comment.
Another source added: ‘He was even dubbed the Phantom Flasher by his cast-mates because he would often give the people around him an unexpected eyeful. His attitude was very much, ‘If you’ve got it, flaunt it.’

When the hunk joined Strictly, he joked that producers were bound to use shirtless clips from his time on Emmerdale, before the moment appeared on the screen.
On Saturday, Kelvin took to the dancefloor for his second performance with Oti, and this time the pair danced a waltz to What the World Needs Now Is Love by Burt Bacharach.
Overall, the pair were once again praised for a solid performance, and scored a respectable 26 points out of 40.
