Caroline Quentin says she got frustrated with her partner during training. Strictly Come Dancing star Caroline Quentin has admitted that she's had her first "barney" with her professional dance partner Johannes Radebe. The couple took part in a joint interview on This Morning today (November 5) and revealed that they had a disagreement during training for the first time this week, with actress Caroline saying that she was "entirely wrong". "We had our first barney yesterday," she said. "It's quite hard sometimes to be taught by someone who is always genuinely right. It's quite frustrating! I offered him an opinion about a dance step and I was entirely wrong, but rather than back down gracefully, I just banged on about it. Thankfully the pair's argument hasn't disrupted their partnership or their friendship, with Caroline saying that she 'worships' Johannes, who she was delighted to be partnered with for the 2020 series of the BBC show. "Suddenly now I'm having that real joy of dancing with a partner," she said. "I'm doing lifts here with a partner... and I get the person who is best at lifts!" She added: "My instincts were good because I simply worship him." Caroline ended up with a final score of 21 (6+7+8) from judges Craig Revel Horwood, Shirley Ballas, and Motsi Mabuse.
