Strictly’s Max George addresses ‘curse’ and talks past crush on Caroline Quentin

Strictly Come Dancing contestant Max George has hinted he's not worried about the infamous "Strictly curse".

The 32-year-old former The Wanted member and Glee star is taking part in the hotly-anticipated new series of the BBC dancing competition.

Speaking to Daily Star Online, Max admitted he was more worried about "frustrating" his professional partner as he can be "quite hyper," rather than worrying about the curse.

He revealed that he hoped his professional dance partner would be "full of energy" too.

Max explained: "Yeah I'm definitely going to need someone that tells me, 'right Max, you really need to work on that because that's just wrong,' but I want someone that's just full of energy because I'm quite hyper myself, so it would be nice to have someone… where I don't do their heads in."

He added: "I hope I don't frustrate anyone, because I do have tendencies to just like start waffling on about other stuff."

When discussing if he was more worried about "annoying people" than the Strictly curse itself, Max said: "Pretty much, yeah."

During the chat, Max also revealed he was excited to meet actress Caroline Quentin who is also in the Strictly lineup.

Max, who is also an actor, confessed he had "a crush" on Caroline when he was younger.

He said: "I'm absolutely buzzing that Caroline's here. I'm a huge fan of hers.

"Me and my brother had a massive crush on her when we were little, when we used to watch Men Behaving Badly, and I was literally just sat with her then and just talking, and she's so cool."

Max added about all of the celebrity contestants: "So yeah, I love all of them, I'm sure they're all wonderful.

"But yeah I'm sure everyones amazing, but Caroline I've managed to speak to and she's just class.

"I already feel so much better about like any nerves and stuff about being around this place that she's here."
