The so-called Strictly curse is the supposed jinx that has seen a number of showbiz couples come unstuck after one of the partners appeared on the BBC programme.

One person said: "Omg can’t stop laughing," while another wrote: "Omg! Nearly choked on my popcorn laughing at that!"

It's the Strictly curse already! One week, one week!

A third added: "Phil’s laugh though," followed by a string of laughing face emojis.

Meanwhile, Kevin and Anneka opened up about their Strictly journey together so far.

Kevin explained: "We're literally starting right from scratch, the first day we did, we started with a bit of choreography, and then we had a bit of a wiggle that doesn't feel good and then it was can we just go eight claps and we couldn't do eight claps in time.

"That doesn't come naturally to Anneka, she has a really analytical brain so when I talk about the angles of the brain and all of these really tiny details and suddenly gets really excited and interested in what we're doing.

"It's all about how about how does that person learn."
