New allegations are claiming that Will reportedly asked Karen to travel to near his Cornwall home to rehearse, only failed to show up...
There’s been an update about Will Young’s exit from Strictly Come Dancing. And what these new reports are saying about the singer’s behaviour behind-the-scenes is a little shocking.
For the past week, rumours have been swirling about why the former Pop Idol judge quit the BBC competition, seemingly without explanation.
And one of those whispers have been about his and dance partner Karen Clifton’s relationship.
Following reports that the pair hadn’t been getting on, it’s now being said that Will made some pretty hefty demands of Karen, only to flake out of rehearsals at the last minute.
According to The Mirror, Will requested that Karen make a 12-hour round trip fro London to his home in Cornwall to rehearse with him, only when she turned up, Will allegedly failed to show.
‘Will wanted to rehearse closer to home, which was impractical for Karen but she was happy to accommodate’, the insider said.
‘He described London as having a “negative energy”, and he had some household things he needed to be nearby for, so it made sense at the time for them to relocate.
‘But after Karen spent six hours sitting on a train, Will failed to show up. Understandably, Karen was furious. And to make matters worse, she had to spend another six hours travelling back up to London, making it a pointless 12-hour trip.’
However, neither will nor Karen have commented on the allegations, and when Will quit, Karen wrote a more than supportive tweeted, following up with one that read: ‘Shame certain press have to sour what was a great time for me and Will that sadly came to an end.’
