Greg, who married Emma in 1992 after they co-starred in Sense and Sensibility, told MailOnline: ‘I told my dear lady wife when they asked me and I said no and she said ”you’re mad you’ve got to do it!”
‘She’s been filming solidly since January and she finishes her last film tomorrow. We were going to have her first holiday together in seven years, but over the five minute conversation the autumn was kicked into the grass and she’s thrilled she’ll be able to relax and support me.’
Greg also revealed that he has spoken to his pal, and Strictly 2020 winner, Bill Bailey about taking to the dancefloor, after the comic wowed viewers and scooped the glitterball with Oti Mabuse last year.

He said: ‘When I was first asked to do I contacted him and he said ”you’ve got to look after your feet” and I’m interested in working hard and trying something completely new and seeing if this body will do what’s asked of it.
‘One of the things I’ve done is get my patent ballroom shoes ready because I think he had quite a problem with blisters, I think it was known as shoegate, I’m trying to get my feet as hard as possible.’
Greg had previously revealed that he decided to sign up for the show as a tribute to his late sister, adding that she was a real ‘disco diva’ who adored the primetime show.

He told MailOnline: ‘I was asked and I thought ”no absolutely I can’t do it,” and then I thought about it, and almost exactly five years after my sister died we’ll be doing our first routines.
‘My sister was a real disco diva she was the dancer in the family and she left this world in a glitterball coffin, so as this world is all glittery I have to go it for her.’
Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday 18th September on BBC One.
Touching: Greg added that he is taking part in this year’s Strictly in honour of his late sister Clare who was a huge fan of the show before her death in 2016 from cancer (pictured in 2014)
