Strictly Come Dancing bosses furious that Danny John-Jules mocked bullying claims as bookies make him favourite to be AXED this weekend

The Red Dwarf actor grinned and waved V for Victory signs as he left his house for rehearsals in the morning.

He later suggested the claims against him were fuelled by racists “in pointy hats”.

John-Jules’s defiant display comes after The Sun revealed he’d been given a “final warning” by BBC bosses for shouting and swearing at dance partner Amy Dowden, 27.

Last night they were stunned by his devil-may-care attitude, with one insider saying: “He’s shown no remorse. It’s shocking.”

As the allegations emerged, John-Jules, 58, exited his north London home in a jokey baseball cap labelled “Parental Advisory: Explicit Content”.



He also uploaded a poster to Twitter showing King Kong grasping actress Fay Wray in the 1933 movie — captioning it “My New CV”.

In another post he claimed reports of his misconduct had been “driven by hate” from “sheet wearing, pointy hatted” reporters — an apparent reference to the gowns worn by Ku Klux Klan racists.

John-Jules, who also plays policeman Dwayne Myers in BBC drama Death In Paradise, tweeted: “My conscience has never been clearer.

“I take great pride being hunted down by Khaki Wearing, Doberman holding, Tobacco chewing, Cross eyed, Cousin producing, Banjo playing, Chair rocking, Night riding, Sheet wearing, Pointy hatted, illiterate, hacks who’s truth is driven by hate.”





In the evening he again refused to apologise when he appeared with Amy, 27, on BBC2’s Strictly spin-off show It Takes Two.

While she confirmed things had “become a little intense” during rehearsals, he said: “I would never bite the hand that feeds me.

“I’m more than happy. She’s the boss, she wears the pants.

“Why would I argue with a Welsh woman?”


Afterwards a Strictly insider claimed that John-Jules had only survived on the show because Amy didn’t want to spark further controversy. The source added: “If she had decided to formally take this further, he could very easily be off.”

Meanwhile bookies predicted he will go very soon — by slashing the odds of him being voted off in tomorrow night’s programme.

It comes after The Sun told how Amy had been in tears over John-Jules’s behaviour.

During one outburst he allegedly told her: “I’m the star, not you.”

An insider said: “Amy’s been crying constantly at the hands of Danny. He gets very angry in the training room and he swears and shouts at her a lot.

“He also makes a lot of snide comments about him being famous and her not.”

Before he signed up to Strictly, John-Jules accused the judges of making racist decisions, tweeting: “They always get rid of the black guy first.”

In 2008 he was sentenced to community service for assaulting two council workers in a row over his recycling bin at home.
