Dale's original ambition was to become a professional footballer. However, unsuccessful trials with both Manchester United and Wigan Athletic ended that particular aspiration. At Liverpool's John Moores University, he trained to become a physical education teacher but realised that teaching wasn't his vocation.

Dale's big break came when he was selected as a housemate for the ninth series of Channel Four's reality show Big Brother. At the launch night, on the 5th June, 2008, he entered the house to a chorus of boos after coming across as arrogant in his pre-recorded introduction. It was in the same interview that Dale made his infamous "If there's any fanny in there, I'm gonna nail it. Especially if they're fit" remark. In spite of the bad start, he survived for 65 days as viewers quickly succumbed to his cheeky grin and killer body. In 2010, Dale was voted the 'Best Looking Male Housemate' of all time.

After brief stints as a personal trainer and male stripper, he established himself as a DJ and music producer. In 2011, and again in 2012, Dale starred alongside Marcus Patrick, Alex Reid and Danny Young in the Full Monty-esque stage play 'WildBoyz'.

Kelvin appreciates the attention he receives from his male admirers.

"It's dead flattering isn't it? I have got a big gay following. I actually find it more flattering when a bloke comes on to you than a woman. I've found myself flittering back sometimes."
