Strictly’s Katya Jones warned ‘not to get close’ to Adam Peaty after ‘near kiss’

Friends have reportedly warned Katya Jones to "not let herself down" by getting too close to her Strictly Come Dancing partner Adam Peaty.

Drama engulfed the 32 year old professional dancer over the weekend after Strictly viewers thought that she and the Olympian "almost kissed" during their steamy Argentine Tango.

This comes three years after Katya was snapped during a boozy night out smooching her Strictly partner Seann Walsh, prompting the end of his relationship with his then-girlfriend Rebecca Humphries.

And Katya's close friends are now said to be concerned about history repeating itself with 26 year old competitive swimmer Adam.

A source told The Sun that pals approached her backstage after Saturday's dance with Adam to say to her: "Don't let yourself down by getting too close to a partner again.

"Please don't put yourself in this position."

The publication reports that the show's other professional dancers were present to witness the advice Katya was given following her performance.

OK! has contacted a representative for Katya for further comment.

It has been three years since Katya was involved in a massive scandal after she was pictured kissing her Strictly partner Seann on a night out in London.

The pair later issued public apologies, claiming it was a one-off mistake that was fuelled by alcohol.

Just days after the pictures emerged, Seann's then-girlfriend Rebecca Humphries ended her five-year relationship with him in a statement posted on her Twitter.

Speaking of the scandal at the time on Strictly's spin-off It Takes Two, Katya said: "Obviously I apologise, and I can't apologise enough to everyone who it hurt and involved.

Less than a year later, Katya and her husband Neil Jones announced their decision to part ways after seven years of marriage.

On Saturday, Strictly viewers were convinced Katya and Adam "nearly kissed" as they held a pose following the end of their dance.

Addressing the concerns by viewers, Adam wrote on Twitter: "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."

Adam's girlfriend Eiri Munro also appeared to have laughed off fans theories in a TikTok video.
