Although there have been no recent reports on the infamous "Strictly Curse" striking again this year, Greg Rutherford has revealed that it's his bromance with fellow competitor Judge Rinder is what's really blossoming away from the ballroom dancefloor.

"The only Strictly curse that has been happening is the romance between me and Rob," the 29-year-old sporting ace told Metro. "There's a lot of male love going on."

The Olympic star, who has been partnered up with professional dancer Natalie Lowe this year, has a two-year-old son Milo with his long-term partner Susie Verrill.

Greg Rutherford has talked about his Strictly bromance with Judge Rinder

"I didn't come into Strictly looking for a girlfriend," he added. "For some, maybe – not for us, I've got someone and I'm very happy where I am."

After welcoming his little boy into the world in 2014, Greg revealed how his birth has outshone all his sporting achievements.

"The Olympic gold will always be the greatest thing that has ever happened to me in my athletics career, but nothing could come close to how happy I felt when I first saw Milo's lovely little face - I was crying my eyes out," he told HELLO! at the time.

"There's a lot of male love going on," he said of the bromance

"Milo's already bringing me luck. He's in my thoughts when I'm going to jump and that brings a great deal more emotion," he continued. "It's been wonderful to end the year on a high."

Greg took home a bronze medal for his long jump at the Rio Olympics. He also won the long jump gold medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
