Strictly Come Dancing: Adam Peaty explains why he’s joined BBC show

Olympic gold medal winner Adam Peaty has revealed he is competing in Strictly Come Dancing for “all the normal guys” who want to enhance their dancing.

The 26-year old and specialized dance partner Katya Jones will be hoping to obtain a passage into week three as the show goes to the public vote this weekend for the first time in the series.

Scores from last week’s show will be combined with the judges’ totals from this week ahead of the first elimination.

Ahead of performing a quickstep on Saturday (October 2), Peaty explained why he was keen to appear in the BBC hit show.

“Some of my mates don’t dance because they haven’t got the confidence or the appeal,” he said.

“Everyone wants to dance but everyone has to learn.

“I want to show people that already if you’re a muscly guy or a big guy, you don’t have to be nimble. That will come, I think.”

Peaty additional that he “never, ever thought” he would be able to unprotected to what he did last week on the dancefloor, when he was given a score of 30 (out of 40) by the judges, whilst training is proving difficult due to the pain its causing his feet.

Adam will be hoping to impress judges (left to right) Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Shirley Ballas and Anton Du Beke.

Strictly Come Dancing will air at 6.45pm on Saturday on BBC One.
