Why was Ben banned from Strictly?

Last August, Ben appeared in Lorraine and talked to Andi Peters.

He explained to Andi that Ms. Annie had banned him from Strictly for the show’s infamous curse.

He said: “Andi, I would like to be strict.

My wife really doesn’t want me to be strict, I’ve talked about it very publicly, but she’s not interested in me having an affair.

“As you know, I studied dance at university for three years, I have a degree in dance – that obviously doesn’t make me a good dancer.

“But my wife really doesn’t want me to be strict. I’ve talked about it very publicly, but she’s not interested in me having an affair.”
