Strictly Come Dancing 2016: Greg Rutherford's girlfriend has a crush on Natalie Lowe


Greg Rutherford's girlfriend has revealed a surprise Strictly Come Dancing crush.

The Olympian is currently dating dancer Susie Verrill, who says she loves Greg's pro partner Natalie Lowe more than him!

Chatting this week, Susie slammed the so-called Strictly Come Dancing 'curse' and described it as "offensive".

And she called on Greg and Natalie to get even closer to one another to improve their performances.

Susie told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “I think the Strictly love curse is really offensive to all the dancers, it makes out that that is what they are up too.

“It’s ridiculous, I want Greg and Natalie [Lowe] to get closer, then it looks great.

“I used to be a dancer and I love it.”

Admitting to even fancying Natalie a bit, Susie went on: “I love Natalie, I love her more than Greg. When I watch them dancing, I’m just focusing on Natalie. She is so gorgeous. I really fancy her.

“I’m not worried at all. When Greg got the call I told him he had to do it - I said, ‘Don’t worry that you can’t dance’.”

This weekend will see Greg and Natalie dancing the Salsa to 'Wrapped Up' by Olly Murs.

Strictly Come Dancing airs live from Saturday night at 6:30PM on BBC One.
