Strictly Come Dancing's Craig Revel Horwood predicts show’s infamous curse will strike harder because of lockdown rules

STRICTLY Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood has predicted the show’s infamous curse will strike more than ever because of this series’ lockdown rules.

The outspoken Aussie, 55, says enforced support bubbles will either make or break couples and lead to “backstage meltdowns” on the juggernaut BBC show.

He even compared the show to rested reality show Big Brother – where a number of contestants had sex on telly.

He said: “People will be on edge, but that will spark up relationships. It remains to be seen, will the dancing be better or suffer?

"It’s like being stuck in the Big Brother house, people might do things completely out of character. Fun and gossip find a way.

"Something will always be happening backstage, always.

"There’ll be the usual banter, things go wrong… Everyone involved will be more nervous given the bubbles. It gives it a whole new edge.”

This year, because of the coronavirus crisis, Beeb bosses have forced pairings to form a “support bubble” with each other.

One dancer in each pair, either the celebrity or the professional, will live alone for the duration of the series to keep risk of COVID-19 spreading to a minimum.

It could mean that for as many as nine weeks, the only person the celebrity or dancer may spend any time with is their partner.

Craig added to Best magazine: “The bubbles will throw up lots of drama. Think about it, if you’re in a bubble, you’re stuck with that person. If a couple don’t necessarily get on it will earlier magnify the joy or the pain.

"As judges we’ll oversee the whole thing. I’m looking forward to some interesting stories developing. There might be a few more backstage meltdowns.”

The show returns this Saturday, where celebrities will find who they are paired with.
