& # 39; Strictly it is joyful, but it is so much harder than I thought & # 39 ;, the actress Scarborough told host Lorraine Kelly, 59.

Catherine & # 39; s appearance on the daytime TV program comes after she insisted that her husband Tom Pitford not worry about the strict & # 39; curse & # 39 ;.
Compete for strictly required hard work and often pulls competitors away from their families, creating gaps between loved ones. This phenomenon is known as the Strictly Curse and has led to various divorces.

Since the start of the show in 2004, a number of couples have fallen victim to the curse, including Natasha Kaplinsky, Ben Cohen, Louise and Jamie Redknapp, and more recently Neil and Katya Jones.
The show is also responsible for forming new romances, with lovebirds Giovanni Pernice and Ashley Roberts and Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell starting romances after the 2018 series.
Brunette beauty Catherine – who has been married to Tom since May 2016 – told The mirror: & # 39; Do you know what? Tom has a WhatsApp group with all his friends – many of them are rugby players and there is a lot of chatter.
& # 39; They all say, "Oh mate, you're the dick – she's running!" But it's just like, Whatevs! Because we are happily married. & # 39;
The Salford resident added that seeing her in the vicinity of another man is nothing new to her beauty because of her career as an actress.
Catherine said: & # 39; Tom was on the set when I sniffed the actors' faces. And I'm used to distorting my emotions. So it's nothing for me. & # 39;
