Graeme: Row hit me for six

The People - - NEWS FEATURES -

GRAEME Swann says he can see why emo­tions boil over on Strictly – as he re­veals all about the “blaz­ing row” he had with his dance part­ner.

The crick­eter, who per­forms with Oti Mabuse, said they had a bust up af­ter she changed moves at the last minute.

Graeme, 39, said: “It was be­fore the jive, there was a bit she put in and I worked tire­lessly for a day to get it and then she said she was taking it out be­cause I wasn’t any good at it. I de­manded it be kept and we ended up hav­ing a blaz­ing row and she stormed out and she left me feel­ing re­ally stupid and sheep­ish.

“I am ter­ri­ble in fights es­pe­cially with women be­cause I say things and im­me­di­ately regret them and apol­o­gise mi­dar­gu­ment so I went straight to the kitchen, made her a green tea and we hugged and it was all great. On the Satur­day we nailed the jive. “But to wind her up, I started jiv­ing in front of her the other day and put my old move back in and thought she was go­ing to kill me on the spot.”
