Her co-star Adam Peaty has admitted that competing for the Glitterball Trophy after her medal-winning summer at the Tokyo Olympics is going to be ‘very different’.

Adam revealed that he signed up for Strictly after deciding he still wanted a new challenge while he took a break from swimming.
‘People expect me to work harder’: Strictly’s Adam Peaty admits it will be ‘very different’ competing for glitterball after gold medal success in Tokyo
Speaking to MailOnline about Strictly getting on the dance floor, Adam said he feels extra pressure to do well after winning two gold medals in Tokyo.
The player won her first medal in the 100m breaststroke, before winning her second gold medal in the 4x100m mixed medley.
He said: ‘People are expecting me to work harder and work harder, because I’ve won every competition I’ve been in, but going into it is very different.

‘I’m used to being in water, I’m not used to being on land against gravity, but hopefully my hips are fluid enough.
‘I think it is very important to challenge in life, I am an athlete so I am constantly being challenged, but I felt that I need to take some time out from swimming, it is about the challenge.’
Adam also told MailOnline that he feared it would be “extremely difficult” to accept the challenge of learning the dance, especially given that he has never trained with a partner before.
He continued: ‘Swimming training is one of the hardest sports I go up and down for four hours a day, dance music for me, but it’s going to be very hard, I trained my mind and body for it Is. A long time so I am hoping that I can use the hard work.’
She is shining! Adam also told MailOnline that he feared it would be “extremely difficult” to accept the challenge of learning the dance.
‘With the Olympics you’re not on TV, but the preparation is very different, but obviously you’re taking people through that training cycle.
‘I can take the criticism, but I won’t be very happy if I put my heart and soul into it, and get 3 or 4.’
‘Those first few weeks are going to be very tough, everything is pretty volatile around that but once I get a few weeks out of it it will be good.’
