John-Jules in King Kong jape over bust-up with Strictly part­ner Amy

Western Mail - - NEWS -

DANNY John-Jules has posted an im­age of a men­ac­ing King Kong, writ­ing “my new CV”, hours af­ter re­ports of a clash with his Strictly dance part­ner.

The ac­tor, 58, and Amy Dow­den, 27, had a dis­agree­ment in the dance stu­dio on Wed­nes­day, with the pro­fes­sional dancer walk­ing out of a ses­sion, be­fore re­solv­ing the row and go­ing back to train­ing.

A source de­nied re­ports that John-Jules was given a “fi­nal warn­ing”.

The TV star, the old­est con­tes­tant on the BBC One show, later posted a snap on In­sta­gram of movie mon­ster King Kong hold­ing a woman and wrote: “My new CV just ar­rived.”

Last week­end, the Red Dwarf and Death In Par­adise star ended up at the bot­tom of the leader­board with 22 points af­ter he and Dow­den failed to im­press with their quick­step.

Ear­lier in the com­pe­ti­tion, they had been rid­ing high and were awarded the first 10 of the se­ries.

John-Jules, who re­cently joked that the so-called Strictly curse was the main at­trac­tion for him to join the pro­gramme, is per­form­ing a samba on this week­end’s show.
