Strictly’s Caroline Quentin says she had ‘nasty row with pro Johannes Radebe’

Strictly Come Dancing star Caroline Quentin has revealed that she and her pro dance partner Johannes Radebe have had their first row.

The pair appeared on This Morning on Thursday where they discussed their fantastic score of 21 points in the first two weeks of the show with Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.

Holly asked Johannes if Caroline "was a good student" and when he replied saying she was a "fantastic" one, she butted in and revealed their bust-up and said the "honeymoon period is over".

Holly asked: "Is she a good student Johannes, does she listen and work hard?"

Johannes replied: "She is a fantastic student and I am not just saying that because she is sitting next to me.

"She is a very strong-headed woman, but she takes directions so well, as you can see, the performances have proved that.

"I have been enjoying my time with her."

Caroline cut in: "It is very nice for Johannes to say that, but we had our first proper barney yesterday and we are both still slightly ouchy from it.

"It's hard sometimes to be told all the time by someone who is always genuinely right, it's quite frustrating.

"I offered an opinion about a dance step and I was entirely wrong, but rather than back down gracefully I just banged on about it.

"And he got really annoyed with me!

"And about 10 minutes later I realised I was entirely wrong.

"I think our honeymoon period is over and it's going to be… No, actually it won't, because I am going to learn to be quiet and bow down to superior knowledge."

Johannes said he was surprised at the pair's fantastic score in week one.

He said: "I was surprised about the scores actually, I thought they would probably score her a five.

"But when those sevens came out I was like, 'It's a testament to how hard you have been working for the last two weeks.'"

Phil also asked Caroline about her dreams to be a ballerina when she was a child.

She explained: "Like a lot of kids I went to ballet school, I was obsessed with it, ballet was my absolute life and my dream.

"It didn't happen for various reasons, I wasn't good enough, I wasn't tall enough, my body wasn't quite right for it.

"And suddenly now I am having that real joy of dancing with a partner, because I never got good enough to do partner work, I never did lifts.

"And that's what you dream of when you're a little girl… And I get the person who is best at lifts in the world, and he needs to be."

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV
