Jamelia clashing with Strictly Come Dancing's Tristan MacManus?

Jamelia has reportedly fallen out with her 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner Tristan MacManus.

The 'Superstar' hitmaker has reportedly been clashing with her professional partner after they found themselves in the bottom two last weekend as he believes she's not working hard enough.

A source said: "They're really feeling the pressure after finding themselves in the bottom two last week and it has caused a bit of friction.

"Jamelia has been late for rehearsals several times and doesn't seem to be putting in as much effort as Tristan.

"He's one of the new dancers so he's super-keen to win."

The 34-year-old star and Tristan, 33, went head-to-head with Ainsley Harriott and Natalie Lowe in the dance-off on Saturday after failing to impress the public with their foxtrot.

However, judges Craig Revel Horwood, Bruno Tonioli and Darcey Bussell all voted to save them and sent Ainsley home instead.

Jamelia and Tristan are now hoping to get back to their best when they dance the jive to The Time Warp from The Rocky Horror Picture Show this weekend.

An insider told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Last week was ultra-busy for Jamelia - training for 'Strictly', travelling between Birmingham and the London studios, doing 'Loose Women' and organising her daughter's 10th birthday party.

"She's a busy single mum but loves being on 'Strictly' and has found a great friend and teacher in Tristan."
