Swann bails out

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE - ED GLEAVE

GRAEME Swann has re­vealed he had a bust-up with pro part­ner Oti Mabuse in re­hearsals.

The crick­eter, 39, said: “We had a fall­out be­fore we did the jive. I’d worked re­ally hard on a bit of it and then she wanted to take it out. I de­manded we keep it in.

“We had a blaz­ing row about it and she stormed out. I was left feel­ing very sheep­ish and stupid. I’m ter­ri­ble in fights, es­pe­cially with women. I say things, then im­me­di­ately regret them.

“Later on I made her a green tea and we hugged and it was all great. The other day I brought it up and I thought she was go­ing to kill me on the spot!” DANNY John-Jules put in the best act­ing per­for­mance of his ca­reer last night…he was all smiles with dance part­ner Amy Dow­den. Ru­mours are swirling that the pair hate each other so much bosses have had to step in.

But any bad blood was kept well hid­den dur­ing their Caribbean in­spired samba. Al­though it still wasn’t enough to im­press the judges and they are again bot­tom of the leader­board.

There is now a good chance they will miss out on the holy grail of the se­ries – the visit to Black­pool.

Of course, there was no men­tion of the con­tro­versy sur­round­ing them last night. That seems frankly ridicu­lous, as ig­nor­ing their trou­bles just adds even more grist to the ru­mour mill.

Ash­ley Roberts was star of the show again, show­ing heart with a dance ded­i­cated to her late fa­ther.

But it might not be enough to bag her the Glit­ter­ball as we view­ers just can’t see past her dance CV…
