Strictly star Danny John-Jules’ dance partner fled training in tears after a massive row, saying: “I can’t go on with him any more.”

Amy Dowden, 27, sobbed as she rang producers on the BBC show after storming out of the studio where she and actor Danny, 58, had been practicing.

A source said: “Amy’s call sparked a sense of panic, not least when she said she couldn’t be paired with him any more.

“The two of them have had several cross words and arguments throughout the series. But this was the biggest row yet.

“Danny is knackered with all the training and he lost his cool. Amy took it really badly.”

BBC bosses told Danny he has to be “mindful of his behaviour moving forward” and spent today reassuring Amy.

Tonight the pair put on a united front on spin-off show It Takes Two as a source said Amy had decided to go on rehearsing with Danny in West London.

The source added: “They are trying to put it all behind them.

“Danny is a perfectionist who strives to make each dance better and better. It’s very common for things to get heated during training.”

Death In Paradise star Danny has been one of the favourites to win the show since week one.

Last weekend he and Amy finished bottom of the leaderboard but dodged the dance-off which saw Dr Ranj Singh and Janette Manrara go out.


Speaking to host Zoe Ball on It Takes Two today, the pair did not refer to the bust-up.

But Danny said he had struggled with training, feeling “like a girder” because he was so tense and stiff after the weekend.

Amy told how she had held him more strongly to lead him around the floor – and he said it felt like being trapped in “two vices”.

Tonight a Strictly spokeswoman declined to comment.

However a source said: “It’s been a tough week for Danny and Amy but they’re back in rehearsals and looking forward to Saturday night’s show.”
