Kenny is an international Rugby Union player, having played as a winger for Wasps and London Scottish, and winning 70 caps for Scotland, retiring from the international side of the sport after the 2003 World Cup. Kenny is married to fellow Strictly Come Dancing competitor, Gabby Logan.

Dancing with Ola Jordan in series five of Strictly Come Dancing, Kenny competed against his wife, Gabby who was partnered with Ola's husband James Jordan. By no means a natural dancer, Kenny's first dance was a Waltz in week one, which scoring only 21 points put them second from bottom on the leaderboard and in the Sunday night results show dance-off against Brian & Karen. The judges voted to keep him in, and in week four, Kenny decided to make his mark by dancing the Paso Doble wearing a kilt, and then dancing the Viennese Waltz the next week to "Flower of Scotland". The pair made it through to week nine, but two dances in one week and the improving standard of the other remaining couples saw Kenny once again in the dance-off, and this time the judges decided not to save him. He finished fifth out of fourteen couples.
