It’s a vendetta

Shirley: I want an older man Rock­ett’s re­view

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News - BY JA­NINE YAQOOB

GRAEME Swann has ad­mit­ted he had a blaz­ing row with his Strictly part­ner – and can see why ten­sions bub­ble over.

The mild-man­nered crick­eter, who per­forms with Oti Mabuse, 28, said they fought after she changed the moves last minute. Graeme, 39, said: “It was be­fore the jive, I worked tire­lessly for a day to get it and then she said she was tak­ing a bit out be­cause I wasn’t any good.

“We had a blaz­ing row and she stormed out and left me feel­ing stupid and sheep­ish. I’m ter­ri­ble in fights, es­pe­cially with women. I say things, im­me­di­ately re­gret them and apol­o­gise. So I went straight to the kitchen, made her a green tea and we hugged.”

Speak­ing about the Danny bul­ly­ing claims, he said: “If they have got their dif­fer­ences, I hope they have made up.”


LOOK­ING FOR LOVE Our queen of the dance floor KAREN ROCK­ETT gives her ver­dict

Just when I thought Kate looked like a goner, she comes back with a light, bright quick­step in full bridal re­galia and got her best score yet. She and Al­jaz might just make it to Black­pool. Score: 30 Chill out Danny! Try­ing far too hard with this samba. He and Amy didn’t make mis­takes but it wasn’t very re­laxed. Felt more like a dance exam. He re­ally wants it – maybe a bit too much. Score: 27

Bare­foot and look­ing like the pro­fes­sional dancer she is, Ash­ley’s con­tem­po­rary dance with Pasha was per­fect. I’m not keen on all the angst-rid­den fa­cial ex­pres­sions but it was flaw­less. Score: 39

Great fun, Graeme! He’s dar­ing, charis­matic and very watch­able. He gave this salsa his all. I hope he and Oti get to Black­pool. They are en­ter­tain­ing and he never takes him­self too se­ri­ously. Score: 31

The Gor­geous Moon River by Au­drey Hep­burn re­ally suited Stacey’s style. She showed pure class with a com­plex waltz. She’s nat­u­ral, gen­uine and looked per­fectly ease in Kevin’s arms. Score: 32

A su­per-fast su­per-cool jive to Jackie Wil­son’s Reet Petite. I loved this dance. Faye eas­ily kept up with Gio­vanni match­ing him move for move. I’m with Bruno. It would have been a 10 from me too. Score: 36 Lots of slightly camp shim­my­ing and funny fa­cial ex­pres­sions made for quite an amus­ing samba with Dianne. Not his best dance but as bouncy as Tig­ger. Joe’s in no dan­ger of go­ing home soon. Score: 32

Dar­ing Lau­ren never holds back from risky moves. Her trust in AJ is to­tal and there is a chem­istry be­tween them. Her ro­man­tic and brave Vi­en­nese waltz should see her reach Black­pool. Score: 34 Cool as a cu­cum­ber,

Charles and Karen de­liv­ered a hip hop style charles­ton that won him a stand­ing ova­tion. Not as cheeky and cheesy as usual but the judges liked it be­cause of it. Score: 35
