Jamie Redknapp tops list of 21 celebs who REFUSED Strictly


Producers of Strictly Come Dancing have allegedly already hit a wall in trying to sign up celebrities for the 2018 season.

According to The Sun, 21 celebrities have already turned down the offer to compete, thanks to the ‘growing concern’ around the so-called Strictly Curse, which has seen a flurry of relationships and marriages crumble over the years following appearances on the show.

Topping the list is supposedly Jamie Redknapp, who has shockingly been asked if he’d like to be on the next season, despite being freshly divorced from former Strictly finalist wife Louise – with the series being blamed for the demise of their supposed wedded bliss.

‘There’s no way!’ Jamie Redknapp tops the list of 21 celebrities who have supposedly REFUSED to compete on the BBC dance show due to the infamous ‘curse’… after his marriage to former-finalist Louise ended in divorce two weeks ago

Louise, 43, appeared on the series in 2016, after which she and Jamie, 44, started to have marital issues. By the end of 2017, they were divorced.

It was highly speculated that Louise realised, during the show, that she wanted to get back to work having sacrificed it for her marriage – with co-star Daisy Lowe said to be encouraging her to do this. 

A TV source said: ‘Strictly used to be show that no celebrity ever turned down. But the Curse has changed all that. There is now a genuine concern that appearing on the show can negatively impact relationships. 

‘Jamie only has negative feelings about Strictly now. There’s absolutely no way he would appear.’

Georgia May Foote’s romance with her Coronation Street co-star Sean Ward ended after the show, with her eventually ending up with Strictly professional Giovanni Pernice.

Sean had to hit back at rumours he’d had a ‘series of rows’ with his actress girlfriend after her dance routine involved her pecking her professional partner on the lips – something that indeed end up leading to their split.

He rubbished claims of the Curse at the time: ‘I think that curse of Strictly rubbish happens with sport personalities. I’m not saying that but you know, as actors we’re used to it.’

Meanwhile, revealing what happens behind-the-scenes, Strictly professional Ola Jordan said: ‘It happens in the movies with actors and it happens on Strictly. It happens as people get close. It is the bond you have with your partner.’

Several married stars who have been asked to appear on the series and said no, include EastEnders starlet Lacey Turner, 29, Robot Wars presenter Angela Scanlon, 34, The Apprentice’s Claude Littner, 68, Countdown host Nick Hewer, 73, former Bake Off host Mel Giedroyc, 49, and Love Actually actress Martine McCutcheon, 41.

Other stars said to have turned down the show because of the Curse include Rula Lenska, Diane Parish, Greg James, Gyles Brandreth, Lee Ryan, Bradley Wiggins, Levi Roots, Clara Amfo, Roy Hodgson and Mans Zelmerlow.

However, not everyone is worried about the Curse; Spandau Ballet’s Martin Kemp has admitted he’s been asked numerous times to do the show but he keeps turning them down because he can’t dance.

He said: ‘They ask me a lot but I think they’ve got so used to me saying “no” they’ve not asked me. I can’t dance. There are some things I have to admit I can’t do.’

But producers may be in luck as Holly Willoughby has admitted she’d love to learn the dance technique following Ruth Langsford attempt last year – but she doesn’t know how well she’d do.

She said recently: ‘Everyone would be watching me do it and that would be horrendous because I’m not very good at dancing. I’d love to learn to dance but not on telly.’
