Zara McDermott says boyfriend Sam Thompson is ‘not nervous’ about Strictly curse

Zara McDermott insists her boyfriend Sam Thompson isn't worried about her falling victim to the so-called "Strictly curse".

The Love Island star suggested her Made in Chelsea beau isn't nervous about her doing the BBC dancing show this year, despite their rocky past.

The loved up pair briefly split in 2020 after Zara, 26, confessed to cheating on Sam, 31, during a stint on X Factor: Celebrity.

And Strictly fans are all too familiar with the notorious Strictly curse which has seen celebs fall for their dance partners after getting up close and personal with them during rehearsals.

Asked if Sam was nervous about the Strictly curse, Zara told Daily Star and other press: "No, no, not at all.

"I think everyone on the show who has got a partner is super supportive and everyone's going to be in the audience."

A source previously told OK! that Sam was "massively dreading" Zara falling victim to the Strictly curse and history repeating itself.

Asked how it felt to be the first ever Love Island star to enter the ballroom, she said: "It was definitely an incredible feeling. I know I am the first Love Island contestant to do it, but I don't think there was ever specifically a ban for it.

"I think maybe the show wanted someone who had ventured out of that box, really.

"I'm really proud of my background and where I've come from because I've grown so much and done so much, so it does feel absolutely incredible but at the same time but I don't see myself as that much of a reality person now with the work that I do."

Zara has presented several documentaries for the BBC, Disordered Eating, Uncovering Rape Culture, and Revenge Porn.

Zara and Sam first started dating in 2019 and, after a brief split following Zara's cheating bombshell, rekindled things in December of that year.

They now live together in Chelsea, London.
