Emma Willis 'bans' husband Matt Willis from competing in Strictly Come Dancing


Big Brother presenter Emma Willis is so worried about her husband Matt dancing with "hot women" that she has banned him from competing in Strictly Come Dancing.

Emma, who fronts Celebrity Big Brother and The Voice, said she regularly gets jealous of her boy band husband Matt Willis and doesn't want him anywhere near the dance show's "hot women".

She told The Mirror: "I'm a jealous person. If my husband is around a younger, good-looking woman, I'm like, 'Stop looking at them!'"

"We're women - and for the most part, I think it's a natural thing that we all have in us."

She added: "Matt could do Strictly, because he's an amazing dancer. Every now and then he will bust out a pirouette in the middle of the living room and our daughter will be like, 'Wow, Daddy!'

"But I don't want him grinding against hot women. I do get jealous, but I think that's normal."

The "Strictly Curse" has previously seen professional dancers and their celebrities begin romances away from the dance floor.

Emma, 40, married Busted star Matt, 33, in 2008. They have three children together, with a new baby girl joining the family in May this year.

Matt has previously ventured into television, winning ITV's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here in 2006.

And with Busted heading back out on tour, Emma has admitted she gets nervous about the female attention he receives.

She said: "I'm naturally jealous. I'm married to a man who is really hot and is on tour with loads of women screaming at him.

"I think I'd have to be extremely confident in myself not to have that in the back of my mind.

"But at the end of the day, he married me - so I've got to remember that."
