STEPS star Claire Richards turned down a place on Strictly Come Dancing because she was worried about the effect the infamous curse could have on her marriage.
It comes after the success of her bandmate Faye Tozer, 43, who was a runner up in last year’s series.

Mum-of-two Claire, who is married to her former PR Reece Hill, said: “I do worry about how full on it is and being so close to another man all the time.
“It would would freak me out.
“I think the curse has become a projection, if there are wobbles in the first place then it becomes a thing.”
Celebrity contestants whose marriages crumbled after appearing on the BBC1 show include ex-rugby ace Ben Cohen, 40, Louise Redknapp, 44, and Countdown star Rachel Riley, 33.
