Strictly Come Dancing: Nicola Adams’ girlfriend has zero worries about curse despite ‘smoking hot’ partner Katya Jones

Nicola Adams’ girlfriend Ella Baig has zero worries about them succumbing to the notorious Strictly Come Dancing curse and believes their relationship is strong.

The 2020 series kicked off on Saturday where it was revealed that the Olympic boxing champion, who is making history in the show’s first-ever same-sex female couple, has been partnered with Katya Jones.

Despite Nicola branding Katya ‘smoking hot’, Ella revealed she has no qualms and isn’t jealous in the slightest.

‘I’m not worried about the curse,’ Ella insisted. ‘Nicki and me are best friends so I don’t really see anyone as competition and she doesn’t either.

‘We did have a conversation about the “curse,” and we agreed I would meet her dance partner so there are no hard feelings or jealousy there.

‘Once you find someone you genuinely get on with you can walk past the most attractive person in the world and you don’t even know they are there.’

Ella continued to The Sun: ‘I can’t see an issue with my partner being surrounded by attractive female dancers.

‘Temptation is always there but if you’re committed to someone, you’re committed to someone — there’s no such thing as temptation when you’re in love.’

Nicola added to the publication: ‘Katya’s smoking hot, but Ella and I are so strong we will never be a victim of the Strictly curse.’

Ella isn’t the only star who isn’t fazed by the Strictly curse.

‘We’re not actually living with our partner or anything like that, it’s just that we’re forming a bubble with them,’ she said. ‘To be honest, it’s going to be like any other year.

‘When you’re on the show, you’re so dedicated to the show that even if I wasn’t in that bubble, I’d be going to rehearsals and coming home and just sleeping really.

‘I don’t really do much else because it really does consume your time and so to me, it’s not really that different. I think the media is always going to speculate and say things anyway.

‘You just bat an eyelid at it because you know you’re working well and doing your job.’

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 7.25pm on BBC One.
