Danny John-Jules reportedly sparked another row with his professional partner Amy Dowden during rehearsals for the final of Strictly Come Dancing. 

The actor, 58, was said to have been given the cold shoulder by other contestants on Thursday, leading him to blame the Welsh dancer, 27, for ‘ruining his reputation’.

‘Danny has been really angry, he turned up and was ignored practically by everyone and was furious with Amy- to say the atmosphere is tense between them is an understatement.

‘They don’t talk, they don’t look at each other and when they aren’t being forced to dance together they are on separate sides of the room.’

The source continued to say the Red Dwarf star has been vocal to other male celebrities at rehearsals, telling them he thinks Amy has ‘deliberately tried to damage his reputation.   

MailOnline has contacted Danny’s and Strictly’s representatives for comment.  

Last month, Amy was left in tears when she appeared without Danny on the show’s spin-off It Takes Two following their eviction. 

It came after reports claimed Danny refused to appear on the show after launching into a tirade at the Strictly judges, branding them ‘imbeciles’ upon his exit. 

He is claimed to have declared ‘I should have won’ and even called the judges ‘imbeciles’, with a source telling The Sun: ‘Danny lashed out at the judges calling them imbeciles and told friends and family he would have won the show.’ 

Addressing his absence, Zoe had told fans: ‘Sadly I’m afraid Danny has decided not to join us tonight but I’m delighted to have the gorgeous Amy here tonight.’

Amy was then seen breaking down in tears and reaching for tissues as she was played a montage of her and Danny’s time together in the competition.

Despite reports of tension between the couple, she paid credit to Danny and insisted she was ‘so proud’ of his performances. Amy said: ‘I’m so proud of Danny. Watching his journey – he is such a talented performer and I know and believe he belongs on the stage.’ 

Danny hit the headlines during his stint on the show after it was alleged he left Amy in tears after he ‘repeatedly shouted and swore’ in their training session during their final week in the competition.

Danny was reportedly issued with a ‘final warning’ by show bosses over his ‘bullying’ behaviour, but Amy was quick to dismiss the claims – stating the pair had a ‘minor disagreement’ that was resolved. 

Danny later claimed he is ‘the victim of a vendetta’ in an interview with The Sun.

‘I’m a man who says what he means and means what he says, my conscience is clear over all of it. It seems to be turning into a vendetta. 

‘For some reason, some don’t want me to be successful on Strictly’, he added. 

Kind words: When asked by Tess Daly about his time on the show, Danny said: ‘It’s been a great experience and I’m just so unhappy I didn’t get Amy to where she needed to be’
