Strictly Come Dancing star Adam Peaty has shared an update on his training for the competition, revealing that he still doesn’t know any dance moves despite the launch date inching closer and closer.
Earlier this week, BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker accidentally let slip the launch date for Strictly 2021, revealing that it’s going to officially launch on September 18.
With just over two weeks to go, one would think that the celebrities taking part would be doing everything they could to master their step-ball-changes and fix their frames as quickly as possible.
However, the swimmer, who recently returned triumphant from the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, admitted that he still has quite a bit of learning to do.
Speaking to PA news agency at the GQ Men of the Year Awards, the three-time Olympic gold medal winner didn’t seem too nervous about the fact that he has some homework to do.
‘I don’t know any dance moves yet and it’s two weeks away. So it’s going to be fun, but we’ll see,’ he said.
While at the awards ceremony on Wednesday evening, Adam, 26, was honoured with outstanding achievement of the year after winning three medals in Tokyo – two gold and one silver.
Ahead of his debut on Strictly, Adam recently gave fans a sneak peek at some of the razzle dazzle they can expect from him on the dancefloor.
The athlete shared a photo of himself wearing a fringed sequinned dress, complete with sparkly gold straps.
‘Think I got the wrong outfit,’ he joked in the tweet, tagging Strictly as the picture showed him also wearing a black face mask behind the scenes.
This year’s Strictly line-up is jam-packed with celebrities boasting talent and personality aplenty, from McFly musician Tom Fletcher to Loose Women star Judi Love.
The show will also introduce a few new professional dancers into the mix, with several returning favourites preparing to go head-to-head with their partners in the hope of winning the Glitterball Trophy.
Strictly Come Dancing 2021 launches on Saturday September 18 on BBC One.
