Strictly Come Dancing judge Darcey Bussell has dismissed “the curse of Strictly” as a “load of rubbish”.

She insisted that the people who had split up with their partners after appearing on the show had had other problems in their relationships.

The former star ballerina debunked the curse as she prepared to return for her third series of the BBC dance contest in September.

In February, former BBC Breakfast presenter Susanna Reid announced that she was separating from Dominic Cotton, her long-term partner and the father of her three sons, after appearing in last year’s series.
