She said that she knew the producers partnered up singles and confessed that it was "fun for everyone".
However, Kara appeared to be uncomfortable talking about the so-called Strictly curse: "You know, this is a really difficult subject.
I hate to go there, I think good luck to everyone as long as people aren't getting hurt." The Essex-born star famously ended up dating her professional partner Artem Chigvintsev after the pair won the competition in 2008.
The relationship lasted for three years before she revealed that they were no longer a couple.
They are both currently touring the UK in stage show Dance To The Music, meaning they can be together.
The impression was reinforced in the summer when Kara was seen at the Chiltern Firehouse without the Russian dancer by her side.Earlier in the programme the panel had been having a heated discussion over whether or not former Strictly dancer Kristina Rihanoff should have revealed that she was expecting her first child with rugby player Ben Cohen on Celebrity Big Brother and the impact if would have on his ex-wife Abby.Ben split from his wife Abby and partner of 23 years in 2015 and is now with Kristina, the couple met on the dance show when they were partnered together.Chigvintsev auditioned to appear as a contestant on the first series of So You Think You Can Dance.The pair achieved good scores in the first five weeks of 30, 32, 31, 32, and 37.
