STACEY Dooley has revealed her new “love” tattoo after The Sun revealed that her close relationship with Kevin Clifton sparked her split from boyfriend Sam Tucknott.
The 32-year-old TV presenter teased a glimpse of a new “j’adore” inking on her foot, which means “love” in French.
The tattoo was just visible above the star’s smart black loafers, with Stacey looking chic as she stepped out in a pair of cream cropped chinos and a black jumper.
The journalist had her auburn hair straight and loose around her shoulders with a pair of dark sunglasses covering her eyes.
Stacey was pulling a small suitcase behind her and recently confirmed that she is flying to America to start work on a new documentary about bounty hunters.
On Thursday, The Sun revealed that Stacey and personal trainer Sam had called time on their romance after three years together.
Sources later told us that the star’s relationship with her Strictly Come Dancing professional partner Kevin was the final straw for their relationship.
The insider explained: “Before Stacey took part in the show she was resolute that she wouldn’t fall victim to the curse of Strictly and that she and Sam were tight.
“However, he found it tough that she would spend hours and hours dancing in the arms of another man and away from home.
“It definitely didn’t help their relationship, especially towards the end. It didn’t help that Stacey and Kevin remained friendly after the series.

“During filming in December Sam had been vocal about her dancing with a single man and was really paranoid that they were going to split because of the show, with rumours he had become insanely jealous — even though she insisted there was nothing for him to worry about.”
Stacey and Kevin won last year’s series of the BBC One dance show after wowing viewers and the judges with their impressive routines.
She and Sam are the 14th couple to fall victim to the so-called Strictly Curse and break up after one partner appeared on the programme.
