Kevin and Karen Clifton were one of Strictly Come Dancing’s favourite married couples.
However, following months of split speculation, the professional dancers have confirmed they will divorce.
And after the paper work has been signed, it’s believed Karen will quit the UK for a huge career move in America.
According to sources, Kevin’s ex wants to swap her place on Strictly for Dancing With The Stars, the American equivalent to the BBC show.
An insider told The Sun: “Karen is devastated their marriage has ended in divorce, as their split was definitely driven by Kevin.
“The past few months have taken their toll and Karen has been left feeling bruised and broken.

“Once she’s completed all of her UK work commitments, she’s told pals she intends to pack up, sell up and get as far away as possible from Kevin.”
Karen also has family in America she wants to move closer to following the breakdown of her three year marriage.
It’s believed Kevin has moved out of their marital home and is staying with friends.
The pair have admitted that while they aren’t together personally, professionally they have “never been better”.
Both Karen and Kevin will embark on a tour together with the Strictly cast which runs from May to July, ending just before another series of the dance competition presented by Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly.
