Emma Thompson supports Greg Wise’s Strictly Come Dancing performance with their daughter Gaia Wise

Emma Thompson went wild for her husband Greg Wise‘s debut Strictly Come Dancing performance on Saturday. 

The doting wife and actress, 62, was joined by their daughter Gaia Romilly Wise, 21, at the studio while Greg took to the dancefloor to honour his late sister.

The Sense And Sensibility star, 55, danced the American Smooth to That’s Life by Frank Sinatra alongside strictly pro Karen Hauer – earning a respectable 24 points.

After oozing Old Hollywood glamour with their performance, Greg and his professional dance partner caught up with co-host Claudia Winkleman. 

Claudia pointed out: ‘Your wife and daughter are in the audience.’

Emma put on an animated display as she mouthed: ‘She’s the wife and I’m the daughter.’

‘Your wife is the one who persuaded you to do it. Are you grateful?’, Claudia asked.

The Crown star responded: ‘Pathetically grateful, my love. 

‘I mean come on, what’s not to love?’

 After the pair danced, Anton praised: ‘This was a dance that made me miss going on the floor, I’d give you 45 points on my own if you could,’ while Shirley noted that he needed to work on ‘the fundamentals.’

Craig also complemented: ‘The Viennese waltz section left a lot to be desired but out of hold thoroughly thoroughly engaging,’ and the duo earned 24 points out of 40.

His performance comes as his wife has prepared herself, and him for the threat of the so-called ‘Strictly Curse’.

The actress revealed last week that she gifted her husband condoms in case he gives into temptation.

While the ‘curse’ – which sees its victims split with their partners after taking part in the competition – has had an impact on stars signing up in the past, Emma isn’t concerned. 

Emma and Greg have been married for 18 years after meeting in 1992 while filming Sense and Sensibility.

Clearly confident in her relationship, she joked to The Sun: ‘I am worried about the Strictly curse, very much so. I have put a packet of Durex into Greg’s good luck card. Just two.

‘But you don’t know, do you? They haven’t got time for a lot of s***ging, I hope, they’ll be so exhausted.

She added: ‘I am not going to the show every week. Karen’s gorgeous, she’s from Venezuela and is only 39.’
