Daisy Lowe: I won't fall victim to the Strictly curse

Daisy Lowe is confident she won't fall victim to the 'Strictly' curse.

The curvaceous model recently started dating male model and actor Bradley 'Frankie' Wade and Daisy is convinced she won't be swapping her new man for Slovenian hunk Aljaz Skorjanec, her dance partner on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 27-year-old beauty shared: "Frankie and I have been dating for just over a month, and it's going well. He's fit, really fit from the inside out.

"I made a sneaky video of him the other day making me pancakes at home while topless, and it's hard to imagine that getting much better.

"I posted the video on Snapchat with a big pink heart around it, though he'll kill me for saying that.

"Of course I've been asked about the 'Strictly' curse, but there's no chance."

Daisy is full of praise for her new dance partner - but pointed out that Aljaz, 26, is madly in love with his fiancée, 'Strictly' dancer Janette Manrara.

She told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "I love Aljaz with all my heart, even after a month, because he is the most gorgeous, warm, kind-hearted human being. But it's totally platonic.

"He is like my brother. And he and Janette are so in love, they are gorgeous and engaged, and we all have so much fun together.

"Frankie loves Aljaz and he is really supportive, which is lovely.

"Whenever the curse is mentioned, I'm so happy I met him before we started."

Despite being a world-famous model, Daisy has admitted to feeling very nervous before her debut appearance on 'Strictly'.

She shared: "I was having a right panic. Having Aljaz has eased the pressure since then, because he is so calm and patient.

"But you do go through so many stages of panic, sheer terror and bone-shaking fear.

"I'd love to stay as long as humanly possible, so I'm going to cling on for dear life, but there are so many incredible people in this year's cast. It really feels like a family.

"We've got a WhatsApp group and everyone's like, 'I feel sick, I'm tired, this happened, I'm crying at rehearsals.'

"But when things go better, they all message, 'We love you' and send sweaty selfies."
