In a chat with The Sun on Sunday, Johnny claimed her injury was a fix and her replacement deliberately choreographed which was too difficult for him so he would get booted off first.
Aliona is the only contestant to win the show twice before she left the show in 2015. She won the show with McFly's Harry Judd in 2011 and later with The Wanted's Jay McGuinness in 2015.
She also partnered Rav Wilding, Tony Jacklin, and Gregg Wallace, and was named the runner-up with Countryfile host Matt Baker in 2010.
