“The one thing that Strictly is renowned for is the dancing. It’s a show about dancing and watching these people’s dance journey,” he told the Metro.

“I just think it’s been overshadowed with the ‘Strictly curse’ as they like to say.”

He went on to add: “I’ve done the show. I’ve seen what goes on behind the scenes. They like to say everyone sleeps with everybody and they don’t.

“It’s not like that at all but it’s portrayed like that. It can be, don’t get me wrong. But in my experience, it’s not always like that.”

Webbe’s comments come after 2015 Strictly winner Jay McGuiness claimed that contestants were “hooking up” away from the glare of the show’s cameras.

“There was definitely things going on, I know for a fact that people were hooking up. It can feel that everyone is at it,” McGuiness told The Sun’s Bizarre.

“People snog behind the scenes and it gets brushed under the carpet. People seem to be all over each other. It’s a constant cycle.”

“Some of it will die after a week, and then it’s about the next season. Some people get away with it, and some people don’t,” he went on to add.
