‘Strictly Come Dancing’ professional Danny John-Jules has spoken out after being accused of leaving professional partner Amy Dowden “in tears” after a blazing row.

On Friday, tabloid reports claimed that Danny was on his “final warning” from producers for “bullying” his professional partner, by “shouting and swearing” at her during their rehearsals.

While a source told HuffPost UK that no such warning was given, and denied that Danny is a “bully”, the actor has now posted his own statement on Twitter, implying the journalists responsible for such stories were racist.

“I take great pride being hunted down by Khaki Wearing, Doberman holding,Tobacco chewing, Cross eyed, Cousin producing, Banjo playing, Chair rocking, Night riding, Sheet wearing, Pointy hatted, illiterate, hacks who’s truth is driven by hate.”

Amy Dowden has not commented on the matter on social media.
