Over the years, the term “curse” has been used to describe relationship break-ups involving the contestants or professionals on Strictly Come Dancing. Now, Adam Peaty has admitted he’s not surprised why it happens, as he discussed how close you get to your dance partner.

Demonstrating a move in an interview with The Times, the athlete said: “My hips are here, hers are here, and then we do this… You get close. I can see how it happens.”

Katya Jones, 32, is believed to be single, while Adam is in a relationship with his girlfriend Eirianedd Munro.

The pair welcomed their first child together, a son named George, 11 months after meeting.

Adam said the nature of his job made him unsure about whether or not he was ready to be a dad.

He added: “Obviously it wasn’t planned. I got the call in Australia, with her crying.

“I was like, ‘OK, this is going to change my life forever’.

“I was like, ‘I’m not prepared to be a father.’ I’m very selfish. I’m an athlete.

“The best athletes in the world have to look after themselves first – I’ve never been able to stay in a relationship because my sport is so demanding.”

The competitive swimmer has been praised by fans for his dance moves on Strictly Come Dancing in recent weeks.

In week one, he and Katya scored an impressive 30 points for their Cha Cha routine.

Last weekend, they danced the Quickstep and earned themselves 19 out of 40 points.

Ahead of their latest live performance, Adam revealed he had broken sleep after pain caused by intense training woke him up.

On Instagram, he said: “So I had a 5.30am start this morning. But my feet.

“I woke up at 4am because I can’t walk, I can’t walk. I literally couldn’t walk to the toilet.

“But then I woke up at 5.30am and it was a little bit better and now I’m dancing. Quickstep. Gotta find a way through the pain.”

Katya has been a professional dancer on the show since 2016.

She won the Glitterball trophy for the first time with Joe McFadden the following year.

In 2018, she hit the headlines after she and dance partner Seann Walsh were seen kissing on a night out.

At the time, she was married to Neil Jones and Sean also had a girlfriend.

After the pictures were published, the pair issued an apology for their actions.

In August 2019, she and Neil announced they had separated after six years of marriage.
