Emma Thompson gives husband Greg Wise CONDOMS in case he succumbs to Strictly ‘curse’ with dance partner Karen Hauer


MOVIE star Emma Thompson gave hubby Greg Wise condoms in case he succumbs to the Strictly “curse” and cheats with dance partner Karen Hauer.

The Oscar-winning actress, 62, has confessed she is concerned actor Greg, 55, who starred as Lord Mountbatten in Netflix drama The Crown, could ditch her for the younger Latino champ.

Emma, who married Greg 18 years ago, said: “I am worried about the Strictly curse, very much so.

"I have put a packet of Durex into Greg’s good luck card. Just two.

“But you don’t know, do you?

"They haven’t got time for a lot of shagging, I hope, they’ll be so exhausted.

"I am not going to the show every week.

"Karen’s gorgeous, she’s from Venezuela and is only 39.”

Meanwhile, the couple’s daughter Gaia, 21, added that her dad would be prepared to perform shirtless because he has a six-pack.

At the Icon Ball for London Fashion Week on Friday night, she said: “He has a six-pack and will take his top off if he is needed to."

Greg has asked for advice from last year’s winner, Bill Bailey, 56.

He said: “Bill was very useful. One of the things he told me is to get my patent leather ballroom shoes ready and wear them around the house.

"He had a problem with blisters on his heel over the run.”
