Georgia May Foote brushes off Strictly Come Dancing curse
Georgia May Foote isn't worried about the 'Strictly Come Dancing' curse.
The former 'Coronation Street' beauty - who is dating Sean Ward, who plays the soap's villain Callum Logan - insists neither of them are fearful that Georgia will end up with her dance partner Giovanni Pernice.
She said: "It's nothing to worry about. I'm in a very happy relationship so I don't think it's fair when people say that. My hunk is at home.
"Sean is just excited I'm doing this. We had a lovely romantic holiday in Gran Canaria [before 'Strictly' launched]. Everyone called me orange but I was like, 'No! It's an actual holiday tan - not a spray tan.'"
And whilst the 24-year-old actress admits she does have some nerves ahead of the first live show, she couldn't be happier with the dancing professional she's been paired with.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper's TV magazine, she added: "He's a very good teacher. He's so strict, I have to tell him off for shouting at me. I ache everywhere. He just says, 'You're not doing it right!' I'm like, 'I know! I'm not a dancer!'
"We've not got an easy first dance. I've gone from not dancing at all to a really difficult one. The standard seems really high this year."
