Mike Tindall rules out Strictly over 'marriage-wrecker curse'

EMILY PRESCOTT: Zara Phillips’s husband Mike Tindall rules out Strictly Come Dancing – after braving the I’m A Celebrity jungle – over ‘marriage-wrecker curse’

He braved the jungle in I’m A Celebrity but don’t expect to see Mike Tindall on the Strictly Come Dancing dancefloor any time soon.

Zara Phillips’s husband has ruled out appearing on the show because of the infamous ‘Strictly Curse’.

‘I’d probably say no because it’s a marriage-wrecker, isn’t it? And we don’t want that,’ he told me, alluding to the number of contestants whose relationships have hit the rocks.

But the I’m A Celebrity creepy-crawlies haven’t put Mike, 44, off the idea of hotfooting it with Zara and their children to Australia one day.

‘Never say never,’ he said at a Rugby Legends dinner last week, adding that the couple, left, are fond of the Aussie lifestyle.

Tigerlily Taylor, daughter of Queen drummer Roger Taylor, has found her happy ever after.

The 28-year-old model has dated music producer MK for six months and tells me at Vanity Fair’s EE Bafta party that the next step is to move in together.

I doubt she will have any issue persuading her dad and model mum Debbie Leng.

She says: ‘My parents have met him and they’ve been very supportive.’

Let’s hope Tiger and MK are more committed to house-hunting than they were to Dry January.

They couldn’t resist a beer as they enjoyed the hot springs on a recent trip to Iceland.

He swiftly followed it up with a panicked: ‘Ignore! Wrong email account. Sorry.’

Could the cryptic message have been about his next novel?
