EastEnders star’s wife admits Strictly curse worry

EastEnders star James Bye threw some shapes in the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom this year while taking part in the star-studded celebrity dance contest.

However, while his wife Victoria enjoyed watching her other half perform on the BBC show, she’s now confessed to having had fears about the Strictly curse.

The so-called curse has been known for drawing celebrities and their professional dance partners together as they form relationships while working closely together for weeks on end.

Some stars have even gone on to become official couples after their time on the show.

Chatting on Wednesday’s (December 14) edition of Loose Women, Victoria admitted she initially grew “worried” her husband would fall victim to the curse.

“Do you know what? I’m not going to lie. I was really nervous,” she revealed. “We’ve got a great relationship, we’ve been together for 16 years but these girls are gorgeous.

“They’re in their 20’s, they’ve got perky boobs. You know, they haven’t had three children.

“I was worried. I thought, ‘God, he’s going to be spending all this time with this other girl’. You know, that is going to be quite a worry.

“But then I had to have a little word with myself. He’s been working as an actor for many years, and I’ve seen him pick Lacey Turner up – who’s gorgeous – and snog her on a washing machine!”

James was partnered up with Strictly pro Amy Dowden on the show, but they were booted out of the competition in Halloween Week after finding themselves in the dreaded dance-off.

Despite Victoria’s previous concerns about the Strictly curse, she and James insist they are still going strong and even revealed plans to soon renew their vows to each other.

“To renew our vows and have the kids there is so special,” James remarked, detailing their hopes to have a ceremony in Croatia, where they spent their honeymoon.

Strictly Come Dancing‘s final airs on Saturday (December 17) at 7.05pm on BBC One, while spin-off show Strictly: It Takes Two airs on weeknights on BBC Two. Both shows also stream on BBC iPlayer.
