Lily was previously spotted with a ring on her wedding figure during a festive walk in New York with the Stranger Things actor.

Things have been heating up between Lily and David and they have been inseparable since they went public with their relationship in September.

This is not the first time Lily has fuelled rumours she’s taken her relationship to the next level, as she stepped out in Chelsea wearing a band on her wedding finger in November.

Strictly Come Dancing champion Kelvin Fletcher has been seen for the first time since being hit by claims he sent X-rated messages to another woman.

The Emmerdale star, 36, was spotted leaving his home with his wife Liz on Saturday, after sources claimed he sent lewd snaps to a blonde woman throughout his time on Strictly Come Dancing.

Kelvin cut a casual figure as he exited his home with his wife Liz close behind, following his claims regarding the X-rated messages.

On Saturday sources claimed to The Sun that Kelvin first began exchanging messages with the woman last year.

Alongside the texts, the actor allegedly send X-rated photographs and shirtless snaps to the woman in question, even while he was wowing viewers on Strictly.

The source claimed: ‘Kelvin has publicly and repeatedly insisted that he’s not cheating on his wife with Oti.’ 

The source added: ‘But for a year he has been sending graphic messages and images to a completely different woman. 

‘It’s like he can’t help himself. He said his high sex drive made it hard for him when he was away from home.’ 

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Kelvin Fletcher for comment.

It came after Kelvin put on a united display with his wife in a loved-up Instagram snap as they marked Valentine’s Day on Friday, following the saga surrounding his 3am ‘nightcap’ with professional partner Oti.

The actor and Eliza beamed for the camera as they headed out on the school run, with Kelvin writing: ‘Happy Valentines @eliza_marsland.’

This comes amid claims Strictly bosses are fearful Oti may quit after being left ‘devastated’ by the 3am nightcap saga, which saw her and Kelvin spotted on a late night out together.

A source told The Sun: ‘Oti is a massive asset for the show. But at the moment she is very unhappy and upset at all the reports and has been left saying “do I really need all this BS?”.  

Drama: The fallout following the so-called nightcap saga has also reportedly sparked fears that Oti may quit Strictly (pictured on The Graham Norton Show on Friday)

‘She is married and has a lot of respect for Kelvin’s wife and wouldn’t carry on in this way. They are dance partners and friends and that’s it. Some people close to Oti are worried she will just eventually throw her hands up and pack it in.

‘She has a great TV career in her own right on the Greatest Dancer and there would be a queue of producers lining up to work with her.’   

When contacted by MailOnline, representatives for Strictly Come Dancing declined to comment at the time.

The drama started when Liz decided to unfollow Kelvin on Instagram after it got ‘too much’ seeing the pictures of her husband out late at night.

Liz was reportedly ‘upset and angry’ her husband was pictured enjoying a night cap until 3am on Saturday morning with his dancer partner Oti. 

A source told MailOnline: ‘Naturally Liz wasn’t happy after finding out Kelvin had been out late drinking with the Strictly lot.

‘It wasn’t easy for her to see him still out at 3:35am, while she’s at home looking after their two young children. Any woman would be upset if they were in the same situation.

‘In the heat of the moment she unfollowed him on Instagram, it was just a shock for her to see him out so late.’

Kelvin rushed home to reassure his wife and insisted the drama will ‘all blow over’.

Speaking to The Sun, the Strictly Come Dancing 2019 winner said: ‘Everything is amazing. I am just a little bit bewildered by all the attention. But I am sure it will all blow over.’

Kelvin and his wife put on a united display on Wednesday, with Liz wearing her wedding ring once again as they emerged from their family home together.

Since being on Dancing On Ice, Maura Higgins has grown closer to her dance partner Alexander Demetriou – and it appears his wife Carlotta has noticed.

It’s been reported that Carlotta, 34,  who is also a pro on the ITV series, is troubled by their close relationship and claims her husband is smitten by the former Love Island star. 

Maura, 29,  is still romantically linked to her Love Island beau Cutis Pritchard, 24,  but has recently spoken out about her closeness with Alex, 28.

According to The Sun, a source claimed that Carlotta questions Maura’s motives and has spoken backstage about not trusting her around her husband. 

Carlotta is reportedly worried Maura ‘has turned her husband’s head’, that she is ‘not a girls’ girl’ and has ‘made no effort’ with Carlotta while working on the show. 

According to the source, Carlotta has been complaining to other dancers about Alex spending so much time with Maura, and that he ‘only seems to be interested in finding fame’.

Both Alex and Carlotta joined the series as professional dancers last year.

Meanwhile, last month, Maura fell unwell and was almost forced to pull out of the live show later that week after suffering a high temperature.

Sharing a bare-faced selfie of her wrapped up in a fluffy robe, Maura looked downcast as she broke the news to fans on social media.

She admitted she was feeling ‘absolutely dreadful’, as she wrote: ‘My training was cancelled today as my temperature was too high!’

Maura added: ‘Praying I’m good for Sunday but might need a miracle.’
