Strictly Come Dancing fans couldn’t take their eyes off Olympian Adam Peaty’s tight trousers as he performed a quickstep dance with pro partner Katya Jones.
The 26-year-old Olympic gold medalist impressed at the BBC One competition tonight wearing gray trousers and a checked shirt.
But this sight left something to want in the eyes of the people watching at home.
Dozens of people claimed they’d see a major problem with Adam’s high-waisted trousers as he danced to Are You Gonna Be My Girl by Jet.
One said: “Can anyone really see Adam’s dance? I could only see that bizarre veggie!”
Another scoffed: “Strictly the stylist is on a mission to make @adam_peaty’s trousers tight every week, isn’t it?”
Another fan commented on Twitter: “Adam deserves a medal for dancing with his trousers on his back! Must have been so uncomfortable”
The judges gave Adam and Katya 19 points, with much of their reaction to the athlete’s rigid posture.
Anton du Beke explained: “You must get the arms in the right position, they are too far back that you have no end of problems.
“They don’t just go up and back, you should put them forward where your partner is standing, so you keep him in front of you, that’s probably the best thing you’ll do!
“So good luck with that, and good luck for the rest of your life!”
Chief Justice Shirley Ballas said: “What I love about you is that you are extremely competitive, but I can see that you are not going to go down easily.

“So come back next week, dust off, and give us a little more rest as we walk around the dancefloor.”
The swimmer previously joked that he would kick off before confidently saying “always wins” if he scores less than the judges.
Adam – who has taken time out from the pool to protect his mental health – said: “I can take the criticism but if I think it was a good dance, I have put my heart and soul into it, for hours more Hours of training and a lot of hard work so if someone says it’s three or four I won’t be happy I am.”
But he continued: “That’s the game, that’s what I feel I’ve got myself into.
“I know it’s going to be very difficult and very different. I will work hard, very hard once training starts.
“I’ve won pretty much every competition. It’s so different going into it. I don’t know what to do.”
