Strictly’s Adam Peaty admits he understands why couples are shaken by the show’s famous “curse.”
Olympic swimming champion, 26, is having a blast learning a new skill and putting her paces through her paces by pro dancer Katya Jones, 32.
And while he’s in a happy relationship with girlfriend Irie Monroe, 23, Adam says he can see why relationships blossom in the rehearsal room.
exhibiting a clever maneuver during an interview with many times, she said: “My hips are here, hers is here, and then we do this … you pass. I can see how it goes.”
Adam and artist Erie met on Tinder in early 2020 and were expecting their son, George, within months.
He said: “Obviously it didn’t go as planned. I got a call in Australia, with her crying. I was like, ‘Okay, this will change my life forever’.
“I was like, ‘I’m not ready to be a father.’ I am very selfish. I am an athlete. The best athletes in the world have to take care of themselves first.
“I’ve never been able to be in a relationship because my game is too demanding.”
However, the pair have also dealt with the demands of the recent Tokyo Olympics where Adam added two golds to his career medals.
Adam’s partner Katya’s own marriage dates back to 2018 when she became close to comedian Sean Walsh.
The pair were seen kissing on a night out in London, and she split from husband of six years, Neil.
After last night’s rigors, Adam found himself in unfamiliar territory in the middle of the leaderboard.
The judges criticized his posture but it was his tight-fitting trousers around his buttocks that caught the audience’s attention.
One viewer joked: “The Strictly Stylist is trying to make @adam_peaty’s trousers tighter every week, right?”
