Strictly Come Dancing 2020: Katya Jones asked bosses if Nicola Adams could ‘carry on without her’ after contracting coronavirus

Strictly Come Dancing professional Katya Jones wanted Nicola Adams to ‘carry on without her’ when she tested positive for coronavirus.

The duo, who made history on the show for being the first same-sex pairing, were forced to leave the dancing competition last month.

After Katya tested positive for Covid-19, both the dancing pro and Nicola had to self-isolate for 14 days.

Speaking to Kym Marsh and Gethin Jones on Monday’s Morning Live, Katya said she asked Strictly bosses if Nicola could do the competition without her.

‘I got a phone call and I just broke down instantly and Nicola didn’t know what was going on and I kept saying “Can she carry on without me?”,’ Katya told the hosts.

‘For me of course, that’s the thing, I want our celebs to have the best experience and to go as far as possible, but we had to do what we had to do.’

‘The fact that I didn’t catch it as well absolutely blew my mind,’ Nicola added.

‘It was really difficult because I’m a champion, I’m a fighter, I would rather go out on my shield than be taken out by a virus but we had to abide by the government rules and want to make everybody safe, but it was just so hard to deal with.’

‘But who knows, maybe I’ll get a second chance,’ the boxer teased.

Katya and Nicola may no longer be in the competition, but they will get to take to the dancefloor once again this Saturday.

Earlier this month, it was confirmed that the duo plan to return to the dance floor one last time as part of the Strictly grand finale.

While they won’t be competing, they’ll be performing a brand new routine for fans.

On Sunday Ranvir Singh and Giovanni Pernice were eliminated from the show after landing in the bottom two with Jamie Laing and Karen Hauer.

Jamie will now battle it out in the final along with Bill Bailey, Maisie Smith and HRVY.

Morning Live airs daily at 9.15 on BBC One and Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday.
