Louise Rednkapp and her husband, former footballer, Jamie Redknapp have shrugged off jibes about the Strictly curse.

Louise and Jamie, who have been married for eighteen years, aren't phased when it comes to the so-called curse that surrounds the dancing competition. In fact, they're actually quit amused by all the stick they have been getting.

Louise is currently competing on this year's series of Strictly with her professional partner Kevin Clifton, and since her debut, Jamie has been teased that she may fall for one of the dancers on the show.

Jamie is a regular panelist on sports show, A League Of Their Own, and viewers will know that his friends James Corden, Freddie Flintoff and Jack Whitehall like to bring up the Strictly curse during filming. On the latest episode, even Jamie's dad Harry Redknapp was joining in and trying to wind him up.

And while Jamie may have looked slightly annoyed at his co-stars and held his head in his hands at his dad's comments, pointing out that he was talking about his daughter-in-law, Louise has revealed her hubby isn't actually that fussed.

Speaking to The Mirror, she said: "He came home that night after filming and told me all about it and we couldn't stop laughing. The whole concept of that show is to take the mickey out of one another and at the moment, he's at the forefront."

Comedian Jack has been behind many of the Strictly jokes thrown Jamie's way, but Louise explained: "Jamie and Jack are really good friends in real life, so he gives him so much stick... that's what their banter is really like."

Louise, meanwhile, has been busy mastering the Cha Cha for week three of Strictly. She shared an updated of her rehearsals with fans on Twitter, and admitted she was "aching" after three days of practicing her moves.

Last weekend, viewers saw Louise and Kevin perform the Viennese Waltz on Strictly and they definitely impressed the judging panel, bagging themselves 32 points. Their efforts saw the pair come in joint first on the leaderboard, along with Danny Mac and his partner Oti Mabuse.

Melvin Odoom, meanwhile, became the first celebrity to leave the competition. He found himself in the bottom two with singer Anastacia, and was automatically eliminate after receiving the fewest public votes.

Due to an injury Anastacia had sustained (she had torn the scar tissue from her mastectomy surgery), the dance off was axed and the celeb with the fewest votes was sent home. Anastacia has now been cleared to dance again and has been back in rehearsals this week.

Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday 8 October on BBC One.
