Jamie was the 11th celeb to be named in this year’s series.
“The Strictly curse is where you dance with your dance partner, get really close to them… I think that’s what happened to Seann Walsh. So many people have got with their Strictly dancers. I will still be seeing Habboo, I’m not going to start kissing my dancer!” he said.
He went onto imagine a hypothetical situation involving his new pro partner and Sophie.
“I’ve been thinking about this – imagine if she was front row, if I’d got to the end and potentially I was going to win it and there was all these rumours going around that I was flirting or getting with my partner.
“Habboo was on the front row but after the very last dance I spun her round and we started kissing! It wouldn’t be something I’d do!”
One of the most infamous victims of the so-called curse was comedian Seann Walsh and Russian pro dancer Katya Jones.
Katya recently described how she’s transforming the way she shops in a bid to help save the planet.
The dancer, 30, has vowed to live more sustainably and avoid buying new clothes for a whole year.
In a new interview, Katya said she also intends to prioritise reusable shopping bags and coffee cups as she looks to reduce her impact on the environment.
