Strictly Come Dancing star Danny John-Jules, 58, said he has “no regrets” about his time on the show, despite being accused of bullying his dance partner Amy Dowden, 27. At the time of the show, a source told The Sun: “Danny swears and shouts at Amy a lot. She’s in bits.” They added the BBC professional had complained to bosses about his behaviour after reportedly being left in tears by the Death In Paradise star. Danny has continued to deny claims he bullied Amy.

At no point did we ever have a conversation that wasn’t about dance

At the time of the reports, he also tweeted his “conscience has never been clearer”.

In a new interview with the publication, Danny said he was always “professional” with Amy on and off screen.

He said: “I came in professional and I left professional.

“As many times as I had Amy dripping off me and I was dripping off her, at no point did we ever have a conversation that wasn’t about dance.”

On whether the bullying claims left him feeling bitter about the show, he simply added: “That’s showbiz.”

Claims the pair clashed in rehearsals emerged days before he was voted off of the show in week eight.

Ahead of his departure, the dancing duo shut down bullying claims during a joint interview on spin-off show Strictly: It Takes Two.

Amy told host Zoe Ball: “I’ve never felt bullied or threatened by Danny I really want to get this man to Blackpool and then to the final.”

But the brunette beauty added things did get “intense” between the pair in a rehearsal, but insisted they were fine after a half an hour break.

After leaving the show, the Red Dwarf star was a no-show on the spin-off, where all contestants give their first exit interview.

The publication added Danny suffered cruel taunts online about his efforts on the show following his departure.

He added: “I was expecting [the backlash] because people always talk c**p about me.

“But I did exactly what I was hired to do and what I promised to do, which was to dance my a*** off.”

During his time on the show, a Strictly production source told the pair had a “minor disagreement” in rehearsals.

They said: “Danny and Amy have had a tough week trying to master their difficult Samba.

“They had a minor disagreement earlier this week but were quickly back into rehearsals that same day and had a good rehearsal.”
