Strictly's Nicola Adams axed from show as Katya Jones tests positive for Covid

Nicola Adams and Katya Jones have been axed from Strictly Come Dancing.

The boxer and professional dancer made history as the first same-sex pairing on the show.

But they have now pulled out of the competition after Katya tested positive for coronavirus – with the pair now self-isolating separately to follow the government guidelines.

Nicola revealed she was ‘devastated’ at the way she had left the series – after being tipped to win the show.

Speaking of her early exit, the athlete said in a statement: ‘Hey guys! I’m absolutely devastated my Strictly journey has come to an end so soon.

‘I had so much more to give and so many people to win this for!

However, she had a tough time of it in movie week, ending up in the dance off with Jason Bell.

Judges opted to save the boxer, meaning Jason was sent home.

Katya also teased that they had a strenuous routine for this weekend’s show, with the pro dancer revealing she was ‘bruised’ from rehearsals.

Appearing on Strictly Come Dancing spin-off It Takes Two, she lifted the lid on how their American smooth was coming along.

‘We’re really enjoying it. It’s nice to have time to work on extensions, arms and just breathing together… my arms are a little bit bruised from lifts,’ she told host Zoe Ball.

To which the presenter predicted: ‘If you’ve got bruises from the lifts, they’re going to be phenomenal.’

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday, at 7.10pm, on BBC One.
