The Russian hunk, 35, who quit the show in 2016 to join the US version, admitted the infamous Strictly curse is real after The Sun revealed Seann Walsh, 32, and married Katya Jones, 29, shared a snog after a night out together — and said there are many more incidents away from the cameras.
In an exclusive interview, he said: “A lot of stuff happens secretly that we don’t know about.
“It’s obvious the dancers have feelings – it’s not necessarily that they want to go and f*** them, but a lot of people do.
“It’s normal if you’re single but if you’re not single then OK, you’ve taken that a bit too far.
“I know from the past that these things happen and people get married and even stay together from the curse – it happens.
"We’ve seen Seann and Katya making out outside a bar and if you asked me if I think people like Giovanni and his partner or any of the others are making out when no one is seeing it, I cannot answer that question. It could well be happening.
“They may have hooked up even before Seann and Katya.”
And he hinted that the pro dancers have an agreement to keep flings quiet, adding: “Whatever happens on Strictly stays on Strictly, let’s remember that.”
Gleb, who now works on the US version of Dancing with the Stars, also claimed Rachel Riley’s Strictly boyfriend Pasha is the only pro who wouldn’t have an affair on the show.
He added: “You know the only person who will never have a Strictly curse is Pasha.
“I think no matter who you give him he will never ever ever have any attraction or anything, not even a flirty moment because he’s such a reserved guy.
“Even with his partner Ashley Roberts, she’s super-cute and super-hot – if you were single you’d definitely hook up with her, but he’s got a girlfriend and there’s no way he’d hook up because he’s also very conservative too.”
And while Katya and Neil Jones have already been hit by the curse, Gleb is adamant the couple will make their relationship work.
The star, whose 2019 calendar is out now, claimed: “I feel like everyone is expecting Neil to go ‘Oh my god, my wife, she’s such a sl**’, no of course not.
“He’s going to support her and he’s going to be like ‘listen, yes she had a few drinks and she made a mistake but she admitted it – hopefully it’s not going to happen again.’

“I also had problems in my relationship – me and my wife we were also kind of separated for a few months – I think four years ago and we made it work and you know actually it worked out pretty well.
“So I think they’re going to work it out and things happen – everyone is a human being..”
