Strictly Come Dancing: Danny John-Jules and Amy Dowden drift amid 'bullying' claims

Friday 9th November 2018

A significant drift in Danny John-Jules’ odds is fuelling the fire of a rift between him and his Strictly dance partner.

The Red Dwarf star is now 22/1 to win the BBC One show from 12/1 after rumours he and Amy Dowden are at loggerheads.

The actor is also three times more likely to be eliminated this week – from 15/1 to 5/1 (see odds below), and to stick the knife in even further, Dowden is 16/1 to refuse to dance with him on Saturday’s show.

It’s also 50/1 that she walks off the live show.

The dancing pair have put on a united front but the Sun has reported that Danny’s been making Amy ‘cry constantly’ since Wednesday.

A source told the paper: “He gets very angry in the training room and he swears and shouts at her a lot.

“Things have been bubbling away for a while and it all came to a head on Wednesday. Amy is so patient and sweet. It’s her dream being on the show. Quite frankly, everyone on Strictly wants Danny to go.”

Despite this, it’s been reported in the Metro that the pair have since made up, and Danny is not on a final warning.

Strictly Come Dancing is rarely without drama—in September partners Seann Walsh and Katya Jones were splashed over the tabloids after being caught kissing outside a pub.

It wouldn’t have been that bad aside the fact that Jones is married and Walsh was in a relationship.

The show has only just got back on its feet since that scandal and already it’s been rocked with another.

Spokesman Paddy Power said: “Despite Danny’s denial, we’ve seen plenty of times that there’s usually no smoke without fire when it comes to Strictly Come Dancing.

“We believe this is no exception, and the rapid odds change on Danny to be eliminated this week reflects the public’s mood toward the dancer. Put it this way – they’re definitely Team Amy.”
