If condition on flow always returning as false when statement is true

Hi Guys, 

 

I am using a SharePoint list as my datasource, on the list I have a choice column called "ApproverList1" which contains some names of approvers. 

 

In my flow I have setup a condition such as if "ApproverList" is equal to "Kevin", then send email to Kevin's email address. 

 

I update my list so that my condition is met, check my flow however it always returns a false statement even though the statement is true.

I have also tried manually adding an expression for the condition such as: 

 

string(triggerBody()?['ApproverList1']) is equal to Kevin
FlowError3.PNG
Can someone give me some pointers as to why this isnt working? 
 
Many thanks

In your condition, you should be selecting "Approver List Value" from Dynamic properties and not just "Approver List".  Can you check that and let me know if this works for you.
