Karen and husband Kevin have been hit with rumours of marriage woes recently...

Strictly pros Karen and Kevin Clifton have sparked a wave of relationship rumours recently, with claims that their 2-year marriage is on the rocks following Karen’s alleged affair with an accountant.

And now former pro and James Jordan has waded in on the speculation about the state of his ex-colleagues marriage. And he certainly didn’t hold back!

James, who is married to fellow dancer Ola Jordan, slammed 35-year-old Karen, calling her ‘confrontational’ and ‘scary’. Uh-oh!

Speaking to The Sun, he confessed, “I’ve had run-ins with Karen. She’s a scary character.” The pair starred on the show for a year together between 2012-13.

He also revealed that Karen had been ‘confrontational’ with his wife Ola, who starred on the BBC show between 2006 and 2015 also. Oh dear…

However, outspoken star James went on to praise popular pro Kevin, saying, “Kevin is a sweet guy.”

40-year-old James went on to slam the couple, who had admitted that keeping a relationship going during the filming of Strictly can be tough.

Of his own marriage with fellow pro Ola, he stated,“We survived ten years. They’re not as strong.”

James damning admissions come just as eagle-eyed Strictly fans noticed that the pair decided not to dance with each other during the weekend’s shows.

The couple generally tend to pair up with one another for the big group dances on the programme. But this weekend, they were noticeably apart, with Kevin dancing with Janette Manrara and Karen dancing with Brendan Cole.

And Strictly fans quickly picked up on the change, leaving them pondering whether or not the split rumours were true.

One gutted fan penned, “Kevin not dancing with Karen :(“. And another wrote, “Kevin isn’t dancing with Karen. Maybe the rumours are true…#Strictly”.”

The news comes amid reported claims that Karen has recently ditched the man she was dating, in order to work on her marriage with Kevin.

So are Kevin and Karen really the latest couple to fall prey to the fated Strictly curse? Only time will tell…
