Strictly Come Dancing 2021 news – Adam Peaty makes SHOCK admission leaving fans 'really upset' after Judi Love dance-off

Nov 3, 2021

ADAM Peaty has revealed his confidence has taken a knock after unexpectedly finding himself in the bottom two.

The Olympic star appeared on It Takes Two with his professional partner Katya where host Rylan commented on the tension in his expression.

Adam said: "I’m still carrying a bit of baggage from the weekend. It was tough to go to the dance off because it was so unexpected, I thought you know what, 29, solid.

"But it just shows you like with Rhys last week, no one is safe. I have to find my confidence again now. I do deserve to be here… I think. It’s dancing and I need to breathe."

The pair were spared by the judges on Sunday night with Judi Love being sent home.

But he said he is "loving" the Strictly so much so he decided he would just focus on the dancing because although it was "unfortunate" they were in the dance off it was beyond their control.

    Strictly shock (continued)

    Meanwhile Nina slammed Strictly Come Dancing for the ‘shocking and horrible’ judges’ scoring that saw her eliminated.

    Nina said she was stunned when, during the same show, Craig Revel Horwood gave double the points to Loose Women star Judi Love, despite saying her dancing was “a technical disaster.”

    She said: “If you have a competition, have a level playing field. Give everybody a chance, or if not that, then at least mark accordingly.

    “You can’t give someone like me a three when I’ve tried so hard and tried something so technically difficult, then at the same time give someone else who’s had a bit of a mistake a seven just because they looked good doing it.”

    Strictly shock

    Nina Wadia has said her shock dumping from the show was ‘difficult’ and left her ‘very down’.

    The EastEnders star, 52, who was the first celeb to get booted off the show has opened up about how she felt being the first celeb to get axed in week two.

    Nina is still reeling after being eliminated from Strictly after losing the dance off to Katie McGlynn.

    She said: “Coming out of Strictly was a big shock because I wasn’t expecting it to happen the way it happened, and it happened very quickly and it was all very surreal for me and when I came out I was very down. 

    “There was a feeling of embarrassment coming-out  as early as I did, there was a feeling of did I let people down, did I let myself down.”

    Speaking to The Lads Dads and a Couple of Beers podcast, she said: “All these questions going on in my head and then the people reaction at the back of it, to say well no.. you shouldn’t have come out you were robbed, and I’m like I needed that!”

    ‘They didn’t want me to win’

    Previous contestant Julian Clary has claimed producers introduced the dance off to stop people like him getting through to the final.

    The comic, 62, has sensationally spoken out about his experience on the hit BBC show.

    Julian was sceptical about his time on Strictly  when he finished third in 2004 – despite being a terrible dancer by his own admission.

    He told The Times: “It was all done on the public vote then and I don’t think they wanted me in the final.

    “I wasn’t very good. There were better dancers than me. Now they have the dance-off thing. They’ve sussed a way to control it.”

    Getting the shivers?

    Giovanni Pernice cuddled up to his dancing partner Rose Ayling-Ellis as they left the show’s studios last night.

    The pair thrilled fans yesterday as they discussed taking home the earliest 40 in Strictly history for their Tango to Ed Sheeran’s Shivers on It Takes Two.

    And after their appearance, the dancing duo happily posed for photos outside the studios smiling and with their arms wrapped around each other’s waist.

    EastEnders actress Rose stunned in a black velvet high-neck dress that featured ruching along the side and a thigh-high slit.

    The 26-year-old teamed the number with metallic heels and gold hoop earrings while her hair fell in a sleek style.

    Bruno to return for the Strictly tour – but fans aren’t all happy

    Bruno Tonioli will be back in the Strictly fold next year for the live arena tour.

    He was forced to miss out as he is also a judge on the show’s US counterpart and cannot travel back and forth due to Covid.

    Bruno, who also missed the 2020 series of the show, is thrilled to be making a comeback.

    He said: “I am absolutely delighted to be back on the judging panel for the Strictly Arena Tour for the first time in two years.

    “I’ve missed my fellow judges, I’ve missed the glitz and glamour of the tour and I’ve missed the amazing audiences that come to see us all over the country – I hope you have missed me too.

    Gordon’s stern words for Nikita

    Gordon Ramsay couldn’t resist ribbing Nikita for showing off a bit too much skin in his fancy dress when dancing with his daughter Tilly.

    He said: “One little issue, Nikita, you and I have been talking for many months now. You know Frankenstein always has his top button done up. Come on, man. Get rid of the six pack. It’s a family show. Really?”

    Not again

    The show has been plunged into a new fix row as fans claimed Dan Walker should have been in the dance-off – NOT Adam Peaty.

    They took to Twitter to complain about the outcome after the results show last night.

    Loose Woman Judi Love became the fifth celeb to be voted off the competition on Sunday night.

    Strictly fans were not impressed to see Adam in the dance-off with her.

    Many agreed BBC Breakfast star Dan should have been there instead.

    One Tweeted: “Dan should’ve been in the dance-off, don’t know what’s wrong with the British public, Adam was involved as always amazing choreography Dan was overmarked.”

    Hammer threat

    Nicola Adams has told of how she would try to protect her mum from a violent partner by keeping a hammer under her pillow.

    The Olympic boxing champ and the first Strictly star to dance with a same-sex partner was abused by her father from age four to 11, and was horrified when her mum started dating a second abusive man.

    Nicola was just 12 when confronted him with the weapon after a violent row, screaming: “Leave the house now or else I’m going to use it.”

    She recalled: “It was horrible. I couldn’t understand why it had happened, and I remember asking my mum: ‘How have we ended up in this situation again?’ I’d been through a lot already, and this guy was a lot bigger than my dad. I knew there was no way I’d be able to stop him if anything serious happened.

    “He wasn’t abusive towards me, just my mum. But what she went through was as bad as it was the first time. I was pretty scared.”

      Rylan sees the light side of bank account raid

      ‘Friend for life’

      Judi Love paid tribute to her professional partner Graziano as she was voted out of the competition on Sunday night.

      When asked by Tess about their time on the show, Judi said: “Can I just say I’m taking Graz home! I will keep dancing.

      “This has been an amazing experience, a life changing experience, I want to say thank you to all the professional dancers, the judges, the team, everybody!

      “Graziano has supported me, stuck by me, and took me to a place I never thought I could go and so for that I love you so much. Thank you.”

      Graziano was then asked if he had any words for Judi, and he said: “She knows, basically. First of all, I’ve made a friend for life.

      “She is one of the strongest women I’ve ever met, this woman has been in rehearsal every day, for every dance, given me 150 per cent, and you know what I love the most, you are true, you are real, so thank you so much.”

      Judi Love’s dance challenge for Craig

      Judi Love has issued a unique challenge to judge Craig Revel Horwood – she wants to have a TWERK OFF with him.

      Speaking to Strictly It Takes Two following her departure she said: “What I would say to Craig is that his expertise is ballroom so I would challenge him to a little twerk-off and let me lift up my scoreboard!” 

      Love was the first contestant in the history of the show to twerk during a live performance.

      Despite the challenge she said she still feels “good” and there are no hard feelings about her departure during the show’s Halloween special.

      “I appreciate all the judges, they’re professionals. That’s their expertise”, she explained.

      Maura tipped for the jungle after Giovanni split

      Love Island star Maura Higgins is rumoured to be lined up for I’m A Celebrity appearance after her split with Giovanni Pernice.

      The latest odds from Ladbrokes currently have Maura at 7/2 to enter the Welsh castle when the popular series returns.

      Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “With her ex-Giovanni making all the headlines on Strictly, a stint on I’m A Celebrity would be the perfect opportunity for Maura to create her own.”

      ‘Tell a love story’

      Janette Manrara told Sara Davies “take Aljaz, he’s yours” as she urged them to “tell a love story” on the dance floor.

      The 37-year-old star has been loved up with the hunky dancer since 2009, tying the knot in 2017, and the pair have consistently avoided the infamous ‘Strictly Curse’ despite both being stars of the show.

      And last month Dragon’s Den’s Sara admitted that Janette had told her to imagine Aljaz is her own husband while they are performing for the judges.

      Now, Janette has had her say – defending her stance as she explained: “Yes, you are doing the rumba, so she has to look at him like he’s her own husband, they’re telling a love story, and that song means a lot to her and it always reminds her of her husband.

      “I told her ‘for the dance, you need to take him, he’s yours’. And they did really well. When they dance together it’s their moment, he’s hers in that moment.”

      The Olympic Swimmer, 26, was spotted in good spirits as he left the studios with his pro partner, 32.

      Adam was seen putting his Louis Vuitton gym bag in the boot of the car and helping Katya with her bags.

      Consistency is key

      John and Johannes have scored the most 10s of the competition so far.

      They pulled off a high energy quick-step and the judges are LIVING for it.

      Shirley said John was “light on his feet”, but Craig called it “repetitive” before saying he “absolutely loved it.”

      One person who may not be celebrating is John’s boyfriend Paul who was caught ‘looking furious’ during the pair’s sexy routine a few weeks ago.
