Strictly Come Dancing stars ‘clashing as tensions rise ahead of the grand final’

Apparently the fight for the glitterball is getting a bit tense behind the scenes, as it has been reported there are growing tensions on Strictly Come Dancing.

There are four couples in the final, but allegedly there have been some little arguments between Faye Tozer and Giovanni Pernice, and Pasha Kovalev and Ashley Roberts.

According to The Sun , the Steps star and her Italian partner have been "ranting behind each other’s back" throughout rehearsals, as Giovanni is "desperate to win" the competition.

Meanwhile, it has been reported that Pasha has ‘not looked kindly at Ashley’s budding relationship with Giovanni.’

But BBC reps have rubbished these claims, calling them "nonsense."

An insider told the publication: "Faye and Giovanni have been struggling with the pressure and have both been ranting behind each other’s back.
