Strictly Come Dancing star Michelle Visage has hit back at claims she's fallen out with Giovanni Pernice, calling him her "rock".
The US telly star was reportedly to be "deeply unhappy" with her professional partner after a series of fiery arguments.
However, Michelle is adamant they have a wonderful working relationship.
In a post on Twitter , she explained: "if anyone knows us, you would know how close Giovanni and I are.
"Gio is my best friend in this competition, he is my rock and I trust him with everything.
"We have the most fun and laughs together and to suggest otherwise is just sad.
"At this very moment, we are focusing on Blackpool."
It come after The Sun reported Michelle and Giovanni have clashed several times.
A source said: "Michelle has been quite unhappy at times. She has a fiery relationship with Giovanni.
"They have been locking horns since the start.
"Both are very strong characters and they've both had a lot to say. He's probably not used to a partner being quite so in control and calling the shots."
Michelle herself said of the pair: "We're both Italian. We're both intense. We're both Virgos. So there's a perfectionist level that's really ridiculous between us
"He wants it quicker than I'm able to provide it. So Mondays and Tuesdays is a lot of us at each other's throats. By the end of the week, we're totally in love with each other again and it's fine. "
She added: "I've never walked out. We just like to fight. We like to fight it out, but it's just that's all in love. Our relationship is very fiery. It's weird, but it's perfect."
Giovanni has made it to the Strictly final three times – he's also said to have butted heads with last year's Faye Tozer.
