Peaty understands the ‘Strictly curse’
STRICTLY’s Adam Peaty admits he understands why couples are rocked by the show’s famous ‘curse’.
The Olympic swimming champion, 26, is having a blast learning a new skill and being put through his paces by pro dancer Katya Jones, 32.
And while he’s in a happy relationship with girlfriend Eiri Munro, 23, Adam says he can see why relationships blossom in the rehearsal room.
Demonstrating a saucy manoeuvre during an interview with The Times, he said: “My hips are here, hers are here, and then we do this… You get close. I can see how it happens.”
Adam and artist Eiri met on Tinder at the beginning of 2020 and within months were expecting their son George.
He said: “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 for ever’.
