On Saturday, Adam, 26, gave a strong message to those speculating about his ‘near kiss’ with Katya. 

The swimmer wrote on Twitter: ‘My favourite dance so far. Thank you to everyone who has sent supporting messages! I loved it.

‘To everyone who wants to see what they want, your comments have real life consequences. I will not be overcome or lowered by your gossip. Protect your energy.’

‘Protect your energy’: The Olympic swimmer, 26, took to Twitter to issue words of warning to those ‘gossiping’ 

Katya has been embroiled in Strictly curse drama in the past as the then-married dancer caused controversy in 2018 when she and dance partner Seann Walsh were photographed kissing.

After images and video of the kiss were released, an onlooker who witnessed Seann and Katya’s kiss told The Sun they were ‘snogging like a pair of teenagers’ and ‘didn’t seem to care who might see them’.

The pair were at the Duke Of York pub in Marylebone in Central London in October 2018.

Their close relationship was noted by members of the crew but the kiss still came as a shock to everyone.

Following the incident, Seann’s actress girlfriend Rebecca Humphries released an impassioned statement in which she revealed he called her ‘psycho’ and ‘nuts’ for questioning his friendship with Katya, who he kissed on Rebecca’s birthday.

While Katya was supported by her husband Neil Jones after the ‘drunken mistake’, their marriage did not last as they announced their split in August 2019.

The dancers confirmed they were splitting in joint Instagram statements, but despite writing they had mutual ‘respect’ and ‘love’, a source claimed Katya’s infidelity was something her husband couldn’t get over.

The pair have remained friends since the split and continue to be professional dancers together on Strictly.
