Brian Conley angers Strictly co-stars

rian Conley has reportedly been getting "special treatment" on "Strictly Come Dancing".

The 56-year-old comedian has been rubbing his fellow competitors up the wrong way as they feel he's at an advantage because his brother Alan Conley is a long-time floor manager for the ballroom and latin show and reportedly helps the bosses call all of the shots.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Alan has worked on the show for years and his inevitable closeness to Brian has been putting noses out of joint. There is fury among a group who think Brian is getting special treatment.

"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.

"Brian survived the first dance-off against former "Holby City" actress Chizzy Akudolu, despite having been the favourite to go."

However, the funny man - who is the bookies" favourite to be the next contestant eliminated - insists he is enjoying the competition and is hoping he can progress further.
