Strictly Come Dancing 2015: Anthony Ogogo blasts claims of clashes with pro partner

Otlile Mabuse, Anthony Ogogo

Anthony Ogogo has rubbished reports that he's been clashing with his Strictly Come Dancing pro partner Otlile Mabuse.

The boxer has been paired with the newbie to this year's pro line up but they were hit by claims yesterday they hadn't quite been getting on.

The Sun newspaper reported that Oti had branded Anthony an "a******’ as they were coupled up during the launch show earlier this year.

However Anthony was quick to slam the stories, branding them "codswallop", a word which really should be used more nowadays.

"I'm extremely annoyed that the silly media are saying that me & @otlile_mabuse aren't getting on. Its ridiculous & very poor on their behalf," he wrote on Twitter. "I've never had so much fun as I've had in the last two weeks learning to dance with this superstar @otlile_mabuse."

Anthony added: "The media have simply preyed on the fact that myself & @otlile_mabuse are new to this and have taken advantage of our naivety. BAD DARTS! "

Anthony and Oti will be dancing LIVE for the first time this weekend as Strictly Come Dancing returns to our screens.

The couples will be performing over two nights on Friday and Saturday evenings on BBC One.

Although while their performances will be marked by the judges there will be no elimination with the scores being carried over to the next weekend.
