strictly star nicola adams girlfriend ella baig says they wont be hit by the curse

Her love Nicola Adams was confirmed as being partnered with Katya Jones in the launch episode of Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday.

And now the boxer’s model girlfriend Ella Baig, 22, has revealed she’s confident their relationship will not become another victim of the infamous Strictly curse.

Speaking with The Sun On Sunday, Ella said: ‘I’m not worried about the curse. Nicki and me are best friends so I don’t really see anyone as competition and she doesn’t either.’

The model continued: ‘The grass is never greener on the other side and me and Nicki have a lot of history together, so I don’t think anyone is going to steal her off me.   

‘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.’

Ella added that she was relaxed about her partner being around ‘attractive’ female dancers, as she also works with other stunning women as a model.

And Nicola, 37, has also expressed her confidence in their relationship surviving the pressure of the show, saying she and Ella are ‘strong’.

Also speaking with the publication, Nicola said her love was being very supportive ahead of her time on the show and added that dance partner Katya is ‘smoking hot’.  

The Strictly ‘curse’ is seen when one or more members of a couple compete on BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing.

The couple is typically torn apart by time-related issues or one partner’s attraction to another person on the show, which in the past has led to divorces, breakups, called off engagements and more 

Katya is no stranger to this idea, as she was caught kissing her dance partner Seann Walsh in 2018 when she was married to fellow pro Neil Jones, 38. The couple split 10 months after the scandal.

Former boxer Nicola and professional dancer Katya, 31, were confirmed as a pairing and made history as the show’s first ever same-sex couple with fans hailing the duo as ‘trailblazers’ during Saturday night’s show. 

Talking ahead of the pairing, the sporting star said: ‘I was the first female to win an Olympic boxing medal in 2012, first female to win Commonwealth Games’ gold medal, first female to become a double Olympic champion. I’m liking these little firsts of making history!’

Nicola was surprised by professional dancer Katya at the Royal Albert Hall in London where she had her last ever professional fight in 2019, the dancer appeared behind a huge sparkly disco ball.

Back in the studio, presenter Claudia said: ‘Nicola, you like firsts, this is a Strictly first, you wanted a woman and you wanted someone competitive, I give you Katya.’ 

Talking about what choreography fans can expect, Katya said: ‘I think the beauty of this partnership is… it’s never been done before on Strictly. So, basically, we’re free to do what we want, there’s not really set rules!’ 

Judge Craig was left delighted over the pairing and said: ‘I am really looking forward to seeing Nicola and Katya, it’s the first time a pro girl has the opportunity to actually lead the dance, which is really super exciting for Katya.

‘Obviously she has had to drag a lot of people around the floor before, darling, and pretend not to lead! I think this is going to be a sensational partnership, I really do.’

 She’s known for flaunting her gorgeous figure in sizzling social media snaps. 

And Olivia Culpo turned up the heat yet again on Sunday as she shared a throwback snap posing up a storm in a skimpy bikini to enjoy a day at the beach. 

The beauty queen, 28, showed off her toned abs in the beige two piece that featured cute off-the-shoulder sleeve detailing.

She upped the glam with her beach-side look by choosing to accessorise with a chunky blue necklace and matching earrings.

Olivia held her brunette tresses back with a headband that matched her bikini and opted for a natural and bronzed makeup look.  

She captioned the stunning post: ‘A beach and a bikini and no screaming toddler sounds reaaaally nice right now’.

Earlier this week Olivia revealed her new hair cut, which included getting ‘real bangs.’ 

Then, she called her boyfriend Christian McCaffrey, who she dubbed as her ‘ultimate hype man.’ 

‘I have bangs, they’re real bangs this time,’ she gushed to her beau, who tells her pal to stop filming, before he raves about her new look. 

When asked if he liked them, the NFL dreamboat exclaimed ‘holy f**cking a**’ and told her he ‘loves them’ and started whooping.  

Her man’s mom was less supportive of her bangs and jokingly quipped to only ask her opinion about them after they’ve grown out. 

In August, she revealed she suffers from endometriosis on her Instagram Story to her 4.7 million followers. 

She also explained in a People interview, last month, she was ‘trying to do the holistic route as of now’ rather than a laparoscopy. 

At the time, the Rhode Island native revealed that she checked into the emergency room with ‘pain on my right side’ and discovered she had an ovarian cyst. 

Health situation: Last month Olivia revealed she has been diagnosed with endometriosis and early in October she asked fans for 'Tips to prep for endometriosis laparoscopy!'

humiliated shayna jack cops verbal abuse from directing staff as she derails sas australia challenge

She came under fire when she tested positive to Ligandrol in both her A and B samples in Cairns in July 2019, ahead of the FINA World Championships in South Korea.

And Shayna Jack, 21, faced further adversity as she copped verbal abuse by directing staff Mark ‘Billy’ Billingham on Monday’s episode of SAS Australia.

‘You’re a disgrace!’ the former soldier yelled at the humiliated swimmer after she failed to shoot at the ‘enemy’ during the ‘life or death’ challenge.

Realising her mistake, Shayna said: ‘I should have fired because he was putting my life in danger because he had his weapon on me.’

Mark vented: ‘You couldn’t make a decision! Too busy worrying about being out of breath. You know what you are? A f***ing liability to all the people behind you

‘That leaves it to me, or someone else, to go and tell your mum and dad that old numpty nuts got us all f***ing killed nearly – and unfortunately, she’s dead! How does that sound?’

When Shayna admitted that she felt ‘terrible’, Mark took no pity as he replied: ‘All you had to do was think, observe and deal with it. You’re a disgrace!’

Shayna was at the centre of doping allegations last year, after testing positive for the banned muscle-enhancing substance Ligandrol.    

She has regularly protested her innocence and denied knowingly taking the drug.

‘It’s something that is so far-fetched from what I’d ever think would happen to me,’ Shayna told The Sunday Project last year.

In the interview with host Lisa Wilkinson, Shayna said she was told anything she came into contact with prior to the test could have contaminated her sample.

‘There was a case in the past called the “kiss cocaine case” where someone had taken cocaine and then the partner, who was an athlete, kissed that person and they were contaminated because they had contact with something someone else had taken,’ she added.

More recently, Shayna spoke to Stellar magazine earlier this month about the ‘draining and horrible’ process she went through during the scandal last year.

She said she still dreams of being able to swim in the Tokyo Olympics in 2021, and will always stand up for what is right and ‘speak the truth’.

‘It has been a difficult and long process, but one thing has never changed for me from day one: I have never bought, possessed, been supplied with or used prohibited substances in any way,’ she told the publication.

Shayna is provisionally suspended, and has been for approximately 15 months. Her case is currently pending and her hearing has not yet taken place, but the exact date will not be released to the public.

shane warnes son jackson 21 admits hes clueless and has no life experience on sas australia

He left viewers shocked on last week’s episode of SAS Australia after revealing he had only tried 10 different foods in his life.

And on Monday, Jackson Warne admitted that despite having ‘no life experience’, he didn’t plan on riding on the coattails of the fame earned by his cricketer father, Shane Warne, 51.

The 21-year-old also explained that he wanted to use the episode’s gruelling ‘life or death’ course as a way to test himself ‘physically and mentally’ and see what he was capable of.

‘I don’t consider myself a celebrity at all,’ he told cameras ahead trying his luck at the demanding obstacle.

‘Obviously, my dad is a celebrity. The Warne last name is a celebrity, but I don’t think I’m famous or anything like that.

‘I’m such a young age. I haven’t had the life experience that other people have had. But this [the course] is an awesome test I can do to test myself physically and mentally’.

Jackson was then shoved along the course by the show’s directing staff. However, when his face mask was taken off, he didn’t shoot.

When asked why by Mark ‘Billy’ Billingham, Jackson said: ‘He’s got his gun down, Sir, he’s a friendly!’

Amazed by the model’s realisation, Mark praised him: ‘You’re a f***ing impressive person!’

Jackson left viewers gobsmacked last week after admitting he’d only tried ‘like, 10 different foods’ in his entire life.

And in an interview with news.com.au, he explained that his diet consists of: ‘Eggs, bacon, toast, cereal, burgers, nachos, chips, apples… that’s about it.

The model went on to reveal his typical day on a plate, which starts with ‘eggs, bacon and an oat shake’ for breakfast.

After going to the gym, Jackson feasts on ‘two burgers and a protein shake’ before tucking into pasta or lasagna for dinner.

‘It’s not like I don’t want to try other foods; it’s just that I enjoy what I’m eating and it works for me,’ Jackson said.

While filming SAS Australia in August, Jackson had the opportunity to eat a variety of foods he’d never tried before, including sushi, pineapple, rockmelon, mandarins and even steak.

Thanks to his experience, Jackson says he is now slowly attempting to broaden his diet at home.

‘My sister Brooke, she’s living with me at the moment, and she’s a really good cook so all the food she’s been having, I’ve been having a little nibble on,’ he said.
