And reflecting on her experience ahead of the final on Saturday night, EastEnders star Emma Barton claims she has perhaps suffered the weirdest injury in the history of the whole show! "It was quite funny actually, so the Charleston - we did Charleston week 11," she recalled at the press conference this week.
"It's fast, high-intensity, and then on the Friday morning when we got to the studio and we had to do a bit of social media, and I pulled a muscle in my bottom - just standing. How do you do that?!" She added: "It was the right [cheek], and I was like 'oh no!' I didn't panic, I didn't panic." Asked how she dealt with the pain, Emma replied: "With large plasters! It worked because I got through it, just me like, 'please I've got to dance, I've got to dance this dance!'"

With Strictly Come Dancing's 17th series nearing its end (how is it the semi-finals already?!) we decided to take a look back at past love matches from the hit show. We've all heard about the famous 'Strictly curse' where contestants – and a few professional dancers – start off the series in relationships only to have their heads turned by their gorgeous dance partners. It happened to pro dancer Brendan Cole with Natasha Kaplinsky back in series one and Flavia Cacace and Matt Di Angelo in series four. More recently, Seann Walsh and Katya Jones were pictured kissing during the 2018 series. While Katya's husband Neil Jones appeared to forgive his wife at the time, they have since announced their separation, and Seann was dumped by his girlfriend Rebecca Humphries immediately following the scandal. During this season, AJ Pritchard and his partner Saffron Barker were forced to repeatedly deny romance rumours, as were Neil Jones and Alex Scott. But it's not all doom and gloom for the show's stars. This may surprise you but quite a few Strictly couples who met on the programme, or appeared already in a relationship, have actually weathered the sequin-covered storm and are still together today. So who are these rare creatures? Read on to find out… Faye Tozer and Michael Smith It's been almost 12 months and Faye Tozer is still married to her husband of almost ten years Michael Smith. The Steps singer was partnered with Giovanni Pernice in the 2018 series, and despite a 'cosy' dinner between the two, Faye is still very happy with her husband. Giovanni, meanwhile, has been in a relationship with Ashely Roberts – who was partnered with Pasha Kovalev during the same series – since the show ended.
Gemma Atkinson and Gorka Marquez Gemma and Gorka met during Strictly 2017 but kept their romance under wraps until the series ended. Unusually for Strictly, they weren't dance partners – Gemma was coupled with Aljaz Skorjanec and Gorka danced with Alexandra Burke. Two years on, the gorgeous couple are still going strong and welcomed daughter Mia on 4 July 2019. In a previous interview with HELLO!, Gemma told us: "Gorka is like my best mate. He's very supportive and understanding of my career, and I'm very supportive and understanding of his. It works well. I hope he's The One, otherwise I wouldn't be with him." Gorka said: "She makes me laugh, she makes me happy. I'm lucky to have her beside me." You guys!
Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes Not even dancing with Strictly veteran Anton Du Beke could end this union! Ruth, who took part in the 2017 series, and Eamonn have been happily married since 2010 and have been together for a total of 22 years. In true Eamonn style though, he joked last year that Ruth's turn on the dancefloor was "nearly the end of our marriage". We can't ever see that happening!

Ore and Portia Oduba TV presenter Ore Oduba had a very special Strictly journey because his university sweetheart Portia was pregnant with their first child at the time. Despite morning sickness and tiredness, TV researcher Portia was in the audience cheering on her husband almost every week until he lifted the Glitterball trophy with pro partner Joanne Clifton in 2016. Speaking about his wife, he told HELLO!: "She keeps me grounded. She's my choreographer, stylist, physiotherapist as well as wife."

Janette Manrara and Aljaz Skorjanec Janette and Aljaz dated for two years before they joined the Strictly pro dancer team in 2013. Two years later the sweet couple got engaged, married in 2017 and are still happily coupled up today.

Strictly curse don't you dare touch these two!
Rachel Riley and Pasha Kovalev Rachel first met Pasha, 38, when they were partnered together on the BBC ballroom competition back in 2013. At the time she was in her first year of marriage to high school sweetheart Jamie Gilbert but they split soon after her appearance on Strictly. Ok, that's kind of curse material, but Rachel and Pasha are still together six years on. They secretly tied the knot in a Las Vegas ceremony in July 2019, and announced in June they were expecting their first child together! Rachel's even learning Russian.

Ola and James Jordan We love the Jordans! Did you know that Ola and James have been together for 18 years and no Strictly curse has pulled them apart? Impressive. The dancers were long-time Strictly pros, both joining in 2006 and James leaving in 2013 and Ola in 2015. Ola has previously told HELLO! about the secret to their long-lasting marriage, saying: "Because we danced together and spent so much time together, we grew closer and fell in love, and then when we didn't spend time together, we missed each other. We just wanted to spend more and more time together and I think that's what made us be together. We've always liked each other's company."
Ben Cohen and Kristina Rhianoff Ben and Kristina met when they were partnered together on Strictly in 2013. At the time, Ben had been married to childhood sweetheart Abby Blayney, who he shares twin daughters with, for 11 years, but they announced their separation in 2014, just months after his appearance on the show. While that is 'curse' material, Ben and Kristina, who confirmed their romance in 2015, are still happily together and in June 2016 the couple had a baby daughter, named Milena.
Frankie and Wayne Bridge Frankie Bridge was a newly-married woman when she competed on Strictly alongside Kevin Clifton in 2014. Despite the gruelling rehearsal schedule and months spent dedicated to the show – where she reached the final – Frankie and her husband Wayne are still happily married today. In fact, Frankie was forced to pull out of the Strictly tour the following year because she was pregnant with her second child.
Abbey Clancy and Peter Crouch It will take more than the Strictly 'curse' to break up Abbey Clancy and her husband Peter Crouch! The couple have weathered a few storms during their relationship, but despite the model being paired up with hunky Aljaz Skorjanec in 2013, she and Peter are stronger than ever and even welcomed their fourth child, son Jack, in June.
