Tom Fletcher and wife Giovanna 'not worried' about Strictly Come Dancing curse

Freshly-minted Strictly Come Dancing star Tom Fletcher and his wife Giovanna have both dismissed any fears over the dreaded Strictly ‘curse’.

McFly singer Tom, 36, is set to join the upcoming series alongside Peep Show star Robert Webb, presenter AJ Odudu, Dragons’ Den entrepreneur Sara Davies, CBBC presenter Rhys Stephenson and Great British Bake Off’s John Whaite, who will make history in the show’s first all-male couple.

Speaking to The Sun at the premiere of Paw Patrol: The Movie, reigning Queen of the Jungle Giovanna shared how she and the family were ‘so excited’ for him to be stepping into the sequins for the BBC’s flagship Saturday night show, before addressing the infamous downside of some contestants’ experiences.

‘The Strictly curse? No, I’m not worried about that. We’ll be fine,’ the 36-year-old said.

‘I did I’m a Celeb, and now he’s doing Strictly. Well, we didn’t want to keep it boring in our household!’

Tom, who is also a popular children’s author, admitted he was ‘nervous and excited at the same time’ but kept things mysterious when it came to his potential dance floor prowess for the show.

The 2018 show caused a stir when comedian Seann Walsh was spotted kissing his partner Katya Jones outside a pub.

The couple was soon eliminated, with Seann dumped by his girlfriend and Katya and her husband, fellow professional Neil Jones, separating the following summer.

Strictly Come Dancing returns later this year.
