On Week 2, it was Gillian Taylforth and Anton Du Beke, who did their dance on ‘It Takes Two’. It was the beginning of the Friday night curse and we saw Taylforth and Du Beke leave the show on the results show on Sunday night, the same week.
The curse continued to Week 3, where Gary Rhodes and Karen Hardy performed part of their dance on BBC2 and it was time for them to go on Sunday that week. On Week 3, before Jessie Wallace and Darren Bennett danced, Claudia Winkleman warned the viewers that whoever danced on a Friday night had left the show that week. So the curse hit Wallace and Bennett and they left the show on Sunday that week.
Now it’s Week 5, and all the couples were a bit reluctant to dance on ‘It Takes Two’ because of the curse. However, when asked by Winkleman, who would like to dance,
John Sergeant and Kristina Rihanoff, volunteered to do it. Did Sergeant volunteer because he wanted to leave? Will the Friday night curse carry on and will we see Sergeant and Rihanoff leave the show?
