STACEY Dooley is "desperate" for boyfriend Kevin Clifton to propose to her before the next series of Strictly Come Dancing kicks off.
The couple have only been officially dating for three months, but the 32-year-old documentary filmmaker apparently wants that ring on her finger SOON.
The couple met when they were partnered on last year's Strictly and went on to win the show.
They only revealed they were dating in April but things are moving fast as Stacey has already moved into the ballroom ace's London flat.
It's claimed Stacey wants a ring to put her mind at ease in light of the so-called 'Strictly curse'.
Kevin has already been married twice before, but this would be Stacey's first time.
A source told Heat magazine: "Stacey would be lying if she hasn't considered that it might strike again with Kevin. He's quite flirtatious and she's been left wondering whether it could happen to her.
"He may have been been married before, but she's keen to lock things down if he gets signed up for Strictly again. She'd at least feel more comfortable if they were officially engaged by then."
While Stacey's family have warned her to take it slow, Kevin is reportedly keen to get hitched for the third time.
The insider added: "Kevin's a very impulsive, passionate person — he'd marry Stacey in a heartbeat."
This news comes just a week after the Strictly lovebirds sparked rumours they are already engaged after she was spotted with a ring on THAT finger.
The pair were seen strolling arm in arm through Portobello Market, with the band clearly visible.
Smiling and laughing, the couple couldn't keep their hands off each other on the afternoon out.
Despite Stacey wearing a baggy jumper, the ring could be clearly seen in the string of shots.
She and Kevin officially confirmed they were an item on social media in April after they triumphed on last year’s Strictly.
They took home the Glitterball trophy in the 16th series of the BBC dance show – and split from her boyfriend weeks later.
She confirmed in March that she had parted ways with Sam Tucknott after three years of dating.
Personal trainer Sam, 30, then confronted the pro dancer and branded him a “slimy snake”.
Kevin's ex-wife meanwhile, who used to style herself 'Karen Clifton' has now gone back to her previous surname of Hauer.

The Sun revealed this month that Kevin had quit his role as a director of their dance school after two years at the helm.
A source said: “Karen has long been distancing herself from Kevin after his romance with Stacey Dooley went public.
"She was annoyed at the time because he’d insisted they were just pals.
"Now that Kevin has left the business as a director, she is free to move on from him professionally.”
