Louise Redknapp has revealed she and husband Jamie laughed about the Strictly curse

"We laughed about it," Louise told HELLO! exclusively. "After so many years it'll take more than Strictly and a sparkly leotard to cause problems. Plus, Kevin is married to the hottest dancer on the show!"

The mother-of-two revealed that Jamie and Kevin have formed a close bond, with the football star often attending rehearsals to show his support.

"We get him to be our audience. Kevin and he end up talking about football and I'll be like, 'Erm, any chance we could learn the cha-cha-cha?'" she quipped.

The British beauty had nothing but words of praise for her dance partner, who is married to fellow Strictly dancer Karen Clifton. "If I could have chosen anyone, it would have been him," he said. "He's an amazing choreographer and dancer. But the bonus is he's a really nice man."

When it comes to the live shows, Louise admitted that her husband "gets really nervous" on her behalf. "He came to watch filming and said he felt sick," she said. "He couldn't contain his nerves."
