The Strictly Come Dancing 2014 line up of contestants have reportedly clashed backstage.

The group have only come together the once so far, filming tomorrow night's pre-recorded launch show on Wednesday evening, but there were grumblings between the celebrities.

According to The Sun newspaper, the completely novice celebs complained about some of the years of experience their rival stars have had, such as Pixie Lott's eight year of dance training.

Frankie Bridge and Caroline Flack also have some dance experience, while the likes of Masterchef's Gregg Wallace, Bargain Hunt's Tim Wonnacott and even TOWIE's Mark Wright have absolutely none.

The BBC apparently agreed to ban the more experienced stars from the first week of training in a bid to even up the playing field.

A source told the tabloid this morning: “Some of the stars this year felt they had a real disadvantage.

“They didn’t waste any time making their feelings known. After several complaints, bosses decided they’d have to do something to ‘even the playing field’ a little."

The source added: “Inevitably, the celebrities feel like they are now on two different sides, and it has affected them.”

However a spokesperson for the BBC commented: “Timings are dictated by contestants’ personal commitments.

"Production have not held back anyone’s rehearsal time.”

Strictly starts tomorrow night at 8PM on BBC One.
