Graeme: Row hit me for six
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.”
