Strictly off-screen rows revealed as Adam Peaty is 'shouted at' by 'scary' dance partner Katya JonesSeptember 30, 2021
STRICTLY star Adam Peaty has revealed off-screen rows with his demanding dance partner Katya Jones.
The Olympian, 26, admitted he gets "shouted at" during their "intense" rehearsals.
He's training at least ten hours a day to learn the waltz ahead of Saturday night's show after an impressive first performance.
"We've been rehearsing very, very hard," he told ITV's Lorraine today.
"I've got very, very, very sore feet.
"I woke up at 4am and thought 'I don't think I'm going to be able to walk today, never mind dance'.
"But then I woke up again at 5.30am and once I got the blood flowing it was alright."
Talking about the dynamics in the training room, Adam added: "It's very intense.
"You can't let yourself fall out of the mental zone because she has a go at me and shouts at me. It's very full on.
"You've got to turn up every single day no matter what you've got going on in your personal life, or business or whatever it is."
Katya said: "You're impressed with my 'turn up' energy, aren't you?"
But Adam just replied: "It's scary, very scary."
The sports star took to the Strictly floor for the first time on Saturday night, dancing a cha cha to track Beggin'.
Adam was left with a bloodied nose after a particularly tough session with Katya last week.
But their training paid off on Saturday night, and the judges weren't shy in their praise of the dad-of-one.
Craig Revel-Horwood said he was "glued to every inch of movement" from Adam who left some hot under the collar as he performed with his shirt unbuttoned and wiggled his hips.
However, things almost went a little awry with Katya slipping as she performed a 'pot-stirrer' with his leg in the air while she twirled under him.
