Danny John-Jules awkwardly told to 'chill out' by Strictly judges after Amy

Danny John-Jules was awkwardly told off by Strictly Come Dancing judges for being “too tough” with partner Amy Dowden and was warned he needed to “chill out”.

Earlier this week, the Daily Mirror exclusively revealed how his dance partner Amy fled training in tears after a massive row.

And the judges appeared to address the issue while criticising their dance.

Bruno Tonioli told the Red Dwarf actor: “You have to be really careful. You can’t be too touch and staccato…you can’t push her.”

While Craig Revel Horwood said of their Samba: “It’s too tough. There’s too much energy.”

Craig then advised Danny to chill out and calm down in his routines if he makes it through to next week.

Danny and Amy were then awarded a score of 27 for their Latin number.

It comes after a difficult week for the couple who became embroiled in the latest Strictly scandal.

Strictly star Danny appeared to suggest the BBC are bullying him after a string of stories emerged portraying the actor as a hot head who constantly rows with his partner.

Last week Amy fled training in tears earlier this week, with the dancer saying: “I can’t go on with him any more.”

She sobbed to BBC producers that she couldn’t be paired with the former Red Dwarf actor anymore after a row in the dance studio – before later reconciling with the actor.

And although the pair seemed to patch things up with a smooth It Takes Two interview praising each other and vehemently denying bullying, it appears Danny is still miffed by the BBC.’s response to the row.

Today, hours before Saturday’s recording the Red Dwarf actor liked a tweet which read: “This woman has 100% denied there is any issue between her and Danny, they make a great pair on the dance floor! In my opinion its a damn big stitch up by the powers that be! Just the BBC doing what they do best, bullying others!”

Danny’s wife Petula, who has been pictured cheering Danny on with her children Dante and Danae, in the Strictly studios, also feels her husband has been “stitched up.”
