STRICTLY Come Dancing star Adam Thomas admitted “the show curse has already happened”.
The former Emmerdale star, who works with Russian dancer Luba Mushtuk, compared the professional dancer to his wife Caroline, who he has been married to since 2017.
Adam, 35, revealed some of the juiciest backstage gossip, including details of the infamous Strictly curse.
He told his brothers Ryan and Scott on their podcast Mancs on the microphone: “The Strictly curse happened.
“I know… I couldn’t believe it myself, but me and Luba…”
But all is not as it seems as Adam quipped: “I’m just kidding,” which drew a gasp from his two brothers before they started laughing.
Love Island alum Scott added: “Everyone says Luba looks like Caroline,” to which Adam replied: “She does… she does.”
Adam and Luba performed the Jonas Brothers’ Cha Cha Cha to Waffle House last Saturday.
Adam admitted he “forgot the routine” and was on the verge of “throwing up” just minutes before his first live performance.
The Waterloo Road star said: “It’s the most nerve-wracking experience of my life, and I’m not just saying that.”
“Backstage I was so nervous I thought I was going to throw up because I’d been working on this routine for so long, and then finally the night came and then I found out I was going first.
“My head, my mind, everything just went haywire, I completely forgot the routine. I was like, ‘There’s no way I can do this,’ and then I literally went on stage with Luba and I’m sitting there and I’m like, ‘I don’t know the routine.’
“Luckily my legs did it…” [I went into] The autopilot and my legs just looked up at me and said, “Don’t worry buddy, we’ll keep going, you just keep smiling buddy.”
