The Red Dwarf star had a bust-up with his dance partner last week claim new reports.

Strictly star Danny John-Jules has been warned by bosses after 'shouting and swearing' at his dance partner.

BBC bosses have allegedly reprimanded Danny, 58 for his treatment of partner Amy Dowden, after he left her in tears.

A new report in The Sun claims that professional dancer Amy has told bosses she has "had enough" following ongoing verbal abuse from the Red Dwarf star during rehearsals.

A source told the newspaper: “Danny swears and shouts at Amy a lot.

"She’s in bits. After fleeing to a cafe, she rang producers to say she didn't know if she could continue."

The source added that the sci-fi favourite left her in tears after he repeatedly swore and shouted at her during rehearsals - and bosses sat Danny down to tell him that it won't be tolerated.

A source said: “Amy’s been crying constantly at the hands of Danny. 

"He gets very angry in the training room and he swears and shouts at her a lot.

“He also makes a lot of snide comments about him being famous and her not.

“Things have been bubbling away for a while and it all came to a head on Wednesday.”

The insider added: “Amy is so patient and sweet. It’s her dream being on the show. Quite frankly, everyone on Strictly wants Danny to go.”

While neither of the pair mentioned any disagreements during their It Takes Two appearance, however Danny appeared to mock the reports on with a cryptic tweet on Twitter.

A BBC spokesman denied claims that Danny is a bully but told Heart that the pair did have a disagreement during rehearsals last week.
