Will Young supposedly clashed with pro partner Karen Clifton on Strictly Come Dancing.

It was confirmed that Will had quit Strictly Come Dancing Tuesday evening, citing personal reasons.

A spokesperson for the BBC announced: "Due to personal reasons, Will Young has decided to withdraw from Strictly Come Dancing. The show fully respects his decision and wishes him all the best for the future."

With Will refusing to speak out about his exact reasons for departing, there's been a LOT of speculation over just why Will left.

From claims of anxiety to just fearing he wouldn't win, all sorts of theories have been thrown about.

Now the Daily Mirror newspaper suggest Will had "squabbled" with pro partner Karen in training, leaving him "exhausted".

A source told the tabloid: "Karen was just doing her job, she was training him hard but in the end he just didn’t want to keep getting told off and corrected all the time.

"It infuriated him. They squabbled a few times during rehearsals and it left him feeling exhausted. He just found the whole process too taxing and didn't think it was worth such a huge effort."

Will briefly spoke out yesterday following all the speculation over his departure.

He told BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show host Chris Evans: "Here's the thing. I'm absolutely dandy, thanks. It's all very undramatic, really.

"I've done my statement and others can say what they want to say. I never read what they say anyway."

Whatever the reasons for Will's sharp exit from the competition, it's set to cost him.

According to reports, Will will lose £20,000 off his fee after pulling out midway through the contest.

Strictly Come Dancing 2016 is back this Saturday and Sunday night.
