STRICTLY'S Tom Fletcher and wife Giovanna have revealed nerves over joining the line up – and have discussed the infamous curse.

The 36-year-old pop-rock star, Peep Show favourite, 48, and Big Brother spin-off host, 33, will be taking to the dance floor this Autumn.
Tom's wife Giovanna, who was crowned the winner of this year's I'm A Celebrity, spoke to The Sun about the dreaded 'Strictly curse.'
Speaking at the star-studded Paw Patrol premiere, she said: "Tom’s doing Strictly and we’re so excited for him.
"The Strictly curse? No, I’m not worried about that. We’ll be fine."
The best-selling author who has three adorable boys Buzz, Buddy and Max with her childhood sweetheart Tom joked: "I did I’m a Celeb, and now he’s doing Strictly. Well, we didn’t want to keep it boring in our household."
"We'll be fine."
Meanwhile Tom revealed his initial nerves about joining the line up, but promised a few surprises.
He told the Sun: “I’m nervous and excited at the same time. Can I dance? Well if dad dancing counts then I can do that. I’ve got a few moves though so hopefully there will be a few surprises.
Harry and the rest of the McFly lads have been been really supportive.
And we’re back performing now so yes, it’s going to be a lot of fun."
What is the Strictly curse?
The "curse" is a phenomenon that hits celebrities and their dance partners during their time on Strictly Come Dancing.
Due to the harsh schedules, sexy dance moves and close quarters with their partners, their off-screen romances sometimes suffer as a result.
Stars who are said to have fallen victim to the curse over the years include Katya and her husband Neil Jones, Jamie and Louise Redknapp, Karen and Kevin Clifton.
