There's usually some friction on the ballroom dance floor as things get competitive.

But it would seem that Strictly Come Dancing's celebrity contingent are seething over more than just scores this year, as it's reported Brian Conley has been 'putting noses out of joint'.

According to The Sun , a number of the showbiz contestants believe the 56-year-old TV presenter and comedian is getting "special treatment" as his brother is the long-time floor manager.

Mirror Online has contacted representatives of both Strictly and Brian for comment on the matter.

The furious contingent of the celebs are said to feel that his huge success is down to having a family member on the production staff.

“Staying in Strictly and doing well is in no small part down to how your clips are edited and the airtime each celebrity gets, so having a family member on staff is bound to help," they added.

Alan is something of a TV veteran, and has worked on a number of other big show, including Britain's Got Talent and Top Gear.
