Danny John-Jules and Amy Dowden have been united in brushing off bullying rumours on Strictly – but back of house insiders are claiming bosses are furious at him mocking the claims.

The Strictly Come Dancing pair, who after this weeks allegations are now favourite to leave the show, were reportedly locked in a heated fight on Wednesday that left Amy leaving in tears.

As a result, reports that a final warning was given to Danny soon surfaced – although this was later denied by Strictly reps.

But a new report today claims bosses are livid at his blasé attitude, with an insider claiming to The Sun: Hes shown no remorse. Its shocking.

Metro.co.uk has contacted Strictly for clarification and comment.

Following the allegations coming to light, Danny joked online about the allegations made against him, retweeting comments of support and uploading a poster of King Kong and declaring it as his new CV.

He later slammed the comments directly and said: My conscience has never been clearer.

He also appeared on spin-off show It Takes Two alongside Amy to clear the air, and while they both admitted things got intense during Wednesdays rehearsals, they said they were back on track.

Ive never felt bullied or threatened by Danny I really want to get this man to Blackpool and then to the final, Amy said.

Danny added: The only reason Im here this far is because of Amy.

I would never bite the hand that feeds me, its the best dance we have done in the past couple of days since we have been on the show.
