The professional dancer is apparently not impressed with Jamelia being repeatedly late for their Strictly Come Dancing rehearsals...

Uh oh, Jamelia is NOT in her Strictly Come Dancing partner Tristan MacManus’s good books.

According to sources, professional dancer Tristan is having major issues with Jamelia repeatedly turning up late to rehearsals.

A source told The Mirror: ‘They’re really feeling the pressure after finding themselves in the bottom two last week and it has caused a bit of friction.’

‘Jamelia has been late for rehearsals several times and doesn’t seem to be putting in as much effort as Tristan. He’s one of the new dancers and is super-keen to win.’

Fans have been quick to point out that the singer and TV presenter has had a busy time recently, trying to juggle Strictly with her Loose Women committments and her daughter’s 10th birthday, and so it’s no suprise that she might not seem as all-in as Tristan.

But with Tristan keen to make his mark on the show, and with the dance partners ending up in the dance off twice already, we can see his side too.


Jamelia has previously spoken out about how much harder she’s finding the ballroom dancing show than she’d expected.

She told PA: ‘ I thought I’d have a little advantage; I’m Jamaican and I thought all of this rhythm would be good on the dance floor, but it’s so much more than that’

‘There’s a real technique and art to it that you have to learn.’

This weekend the duo will be performing a Jive to The Time Warp from the Rocky Horror Picture Show to co-incide with the show’s Halloween special episode.
We’ve got our fingers crossed for them…
Update: A spokesperson for Strictly has told the Daily Express there’s ‘absolutely no truth’ to the reports.
