Nicola Adams has posted an emotional message vowing to continue ‘breaking boundaries and fighting for what’s right’ after being forced to pull out of Strictly Come Dancing

The Olympic boxer was in the show’s first ever same-sex pairing, but had to drop out of the competition when her pro partner, Katya Jones, tested positive for coronavirus. 

The news, announced yesterday, meant that Nicola is now in a 14-day quarantine and will no longer be able to participate. 

After an outpouring of support for her and Katya from fans sad to see them go, a touched Nicola has taken to Twitter and Instagram to vow she will continue to stand-up for LGBT rights. 

She said: ‘Hey everyone. I just wanted to say thank you for the lovely messages and the support, like, it’s been unbelievable, and I did not expect such a nice response. 

‘It’s completely blown me away. I’ve never received so much love from people that I don’t even know and it really hit home to me what this journey meant, not just to me but to everybody else as well.’

‘I just want you to know that, regardless of the situation, I will continue to break boundaries and make changes, and continue fighting for what’s right,’ she concluded. 

‘Just thank you for having my back, and being there when I needed you.’ 

Strictly was hit with a number of issues on Thursday due to coronavirus – with Rylan Clark-Neal, who hosts spin-off chat show It Takes Two, the first to reveal he was having to self-isolate after coming into contact with someone who tested positive.

It was shortly followed by the news of Nicola and Katya’s departure, which saw Strictly pros and celebs share their sadness and well-wishes. 

Judge Motsi Mabuse was also forced to fly home to Germany for an urgent matter, meaning that she will also be missing from the line-up this weekend. 

She will be replaced by Strictly veteran, Anton Du Beke for the upcoming live show. 

It’s now being hoped that Nicola will be allowed to return in the 2021 series to continue her quest for the Strictly glitterball.

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