The married star Davood Ghadami has been paired with newest dancer Nadia Bychkova and tongues are already wagging about the Strictly curse.
The 35-year-old actor – who plays market trader Kush Kazemi in EastEnders - has been married to wife Isobel since 2010 but fans of the show are wondering how their relationship will fair under the intense Strictly spotlight.
It’s all since it was announced that he would paired with Nadia Bychkova, an ex-Playboy model from the Ukraine, who has twice been world dancing champion.
"Everyone has been teasing Davood that he's bagged the dancer everyone else wanted," a show insider told the Sun.
"Nadiya is drop-dead gorgeous. Who wouldn't want to dance with her? She's also a top, top dancer having been world champion twice."
The 'curse' is a phenomenon that hits celebrities and their dance partners during their time on Strictly Come Dancing.
Due to the harsh schedules and often raunchy moves, their off-screen romances can sometimes suffer as a result.
Both Daisy Lowe and Louise Redknapp have been dubbed victims of the curse as the latter confirmed her divorce from husband Jamie Redknapp in August.
Neither David or Nadiya have commented on the speculation, the model has instead focused on her excitement at joining the show, gushing: “Words can’t describe how excited I am.”
The other pairings will remain a secret until series 15 of the show kicks off tomorrow night (9 September) at 7pm.
