Rachel recently spoke about her experience of the Strictly ‘curse’ after marrying Pasha. During her time on the show, the TV star announced her split from her first husband Jamie Gilbert.
Shortly after the series, she and Pasha confirmed they were in a relationship. Speaking to the Sunday Times Magazine, the blonde beauty expressed her feelings about the Strictly ‘curse’, the idea that celebrities tend to fall in love with their professional partners, arguing that it wasn’t the right term for her experience.
Rachel teased: “Are you calling my babies a curse? That’s not right!” The maths whiz went on: “If you have cracks, Strictly can expose them. It gave me the distance to make the break that was going to happen anyway.”
