While many celebs have split up with their partner’s while competing on the BBC ballroom competition having grown close to their pro dancer, Greg has told The Mirror Susie is not bothered by the so-called curse.

“I don’t believe in curses or any of that sort of thing,” he said.

“If people want to have fun, which some people do, that’s entirely up to them. So it is what it is.”

Greg, who has a one-year-old son with Susie, got off to a flying start as the ‘Strictly’ live shows kicked off last week, racking up 27 out of a possible 40 for his first dance.

This week, he and Natalie will be dancing the Tango to ‘Jump’ by Van Halen.

‘Strictly Come Dancing’ airs on Saturday (1 October) at 6.20pm on BBC One.
