This year Strictly is deffo not short on dramz.

Fresh off the heels off the Seann Walshe/Katya Jones kiss, we now have actor Danny John Jules facing reports of bullying his dance partner, Amy Dowden.

The 58-year-old has come under fire over claims of abusive behaviour, with reports of angry outbursts taking place in the training room that had left Amy in tears. 

However, now Danny has taken to social media to suggest that it is the BBC themselves that are guilty of intimidating behaviour.

Reports emerged last week that the actor had been swearing and shouting a lot at Amy during rehearsals.

Strictly bosses told Danny they would not tolerate any more bad behaviour in recent meetings.

The pair appeared on spin-off show It Takes Two to address the claims.

Amy said, ''things did get a little bit intense the other day in rehearsals. But you know what, we took a half an hour break and get back straight to it.''

She continued, ''I’ve never felt bullied or threatened by Danny I really want to get this man to Blackpool and then to the final.''

What did Danny have to say?

''I would never bite the hand that feeds me, it’s the best dance we have done in the past couple of days since we have been on the show. And I’m just happy to go along with it. She’s the boss, she wears the pants. Why would I argue with a Welsh woman?''

However, now he has hit back at the BBC, tweeting, ''#FakeNews is in the mouth of the beholder’” along with a face palming emoji.

Fans were quick to comment, some defending Danny.

One wrote, ''she said she never felt threatened by him. So how does that equate to bullying? Don’t exaggerate things! Drama queen.'

His wife, Petula, has hit out at the bullying claims, tweeting, ''wow BBCstrictlyPR and BBCstrictly are really throwing Danny John Jules under that bus…I'm in shock…why are you trying to destroy him?''

Strictly Come Dancing: The Results continues at 7:50pm tonight onn BBC One.


Strictly Come Dancing has revealed the next contestant in their celebrity lineup. In a first for the show, a YouTuber will hit the Stricly dance floor this season.

Vlogger and author Joe Sugg has been confirmed as the fourth contestant. 

“My knowledge of dance isn't the best, so I'm just going to go into it completely open minded,” he said.

Joe did admit that he’s feeling slightly nervous about all the tan and lycra he’ll have to wear:  “I do feel pretty nervous about it. I just hope they have child sizes as I'm tiny!”

Strictly confirmed Katie Piper as the first contestant yesterday morning.

The mum decided to take part in the show to boost her confidence: “'I think it gives a wider message, my past is irrelevant, to be able to go forward and do these things is a bigger wider message. That’s something I want to take forward, and it’s nice to be part of something so light-hearted!''

Star of stage and screen Danny John-Jules will also be hitting the dancefloor. The Red Dwarf star said he is thrilled to be taking part in the BBC show.

Joining Joe, Katie and Danny will be popstar Faye Tozer. The Steps member said being part of Strictly is a dream come true: “I’m going to relish every moment.”

Strictly will continue to reveal more contestants in the coming weeks. Rumour has it the launch show will air on Saturday, September 1.

We are so excited for the show to return to our screens!
