Everyone was shocked when Will Young decided to leave the Strictly Come Dancing competition earlier this season, and now, he's refusing to take part in the final.

Will left the show because of "personal reasons," but it was widely rumoured that he wasn't getting on with the other contestants and had arguments with his dance partner, as well as the judges.

Speaking of the singer's decision, an insider told The Sun: “He was asked to be part of the group dance… it's a great routine which welcomes back this year's Class of 2016. He declined.”

As fans come to terms with Will Young’s shock Strictly departure, reports are emerging which suggest that the singer may have grown “fed up” of his dance partner, Karen Clifton.

According to The Mirror, the Leave Right Now performer was struggling to deal with the workload placed on him by the dancer in the run-up to him quitting the show for “personal reasons”.

A source told the paper that the 37-year-old did not like being consistently scrutinised and as a result had “squabbled” with Karen last week during rehearsals for the show.

“Karen was just doing her job, she was training him hard but in the end he just didn’t want to keep getting told off and corrected all the time,” they said.

“It infuriated him. They squabbled a few times during rehearsals and it left him feeling exhausted. He just found the whole process too taxing and didn't think it was worth such a huge effort.”

However, the source’s claims run contrary to a statement released by the star himself on Tuesday.

When announcing he would be leaving the hit series, Will said: “I have found a creative partnership with Karen that has been the most wonderful thing to experience.”

“I will be eternally grateful to her for her direction, talent and guiding me through three wonderful dances that I will be able to show my grandkids in years to come.”

Will Young shocked his fans this week when he quit Strictly Come Dancing.

The show is only in it's third week but Will pulled out due to "personal reasons."

And now, it's revealed just how much money he'll lose by breaking his contract with the BBC.

According to The Telegraph, the singer faces a loss of £20,000 (€22,000) for quitting the show, which means he'll only receive £5,000 (€5,500) of his reported fee for taking part.

There has been a lot of speculation surrounding his exit from the infamous series, with many saying it's because of his bust-up with Len Goodman on the second week of the show.

Others are claiming that it's because of his anxiety issues, while more sources are saying he's just "dandy."

Whatever the reason, we'll miss him.

Will Young has unexpectedly quit this year’s Strictly Come Dancing for “personal reasons”.

This evening, the Leave Right Now singer said in a statement: “To be a part of Strictly has been a long time ambition of mine.  As a performer, a viewer, and a fan of the show, to dance as a contestant was an experience I always hoped for.”

“I have made some great friends, and am in awe of their performances week in, week out.” 

“I have found a creative partnership with Karen that has been the most wonderful thing to experience,” he continued.

“I will be eternally grateful to her for her direction, talent and guiding me through three wonderful dances that I will be able to show my grandkids in years to come.”

“Unfortunately, I am leaving the show for personal reasons.  I leave with joy in my heart that I have been able to take part in one of the most loved shows on British television.” 

While fans of the show have been quick to speculate that the 37-year-old’s shock departure could be linked to criticism he received from Strictly judge Len Goodman on Saturday night, sources say the row had nothing to do with his decision to leave.
