Strictly dancer says sorry

Laila Rouass and Anton Du Beke

Strictly Come Dancing star Anton Du Beke is in trouble for using a racist word to his partner Laila Rouass during their training.

He's said sorry to Laila and says he's not racist, but some anti-racism campaigners say he should be sacked.

Laila said she'd accepted Anton's apology and they'd moved on.

"I'm really enjoying the show and dancing with Anton and hope we can go as far as possible in the competition," she said.
