Nicola Adams and Katya Jones are reportedly going to return to Strictly Come Dancing for one final dance.

The pair, who made history as the first same-sex couple on the show, were axed from the programme on 12 November after the professional dancer tested positive for coronavirus.

While 38 year old Nicola was left devastated by the news, a source has now come forward to claim the former professional boxer and 31 year old will dance once more during the show finale.

“Strictly bosses knew as soon as Nicola had to leave that they wanted to do something special for her," the insider told The Sun Online.

“The rules mean she can’t come back to the show next year but they’re planning to bring her back with Katya for the final.

“And Katya is a much valued professional on the show and is hugely popular. This hasn’t affected her place in the Strictly family.”

While the source claimed Katya's place in the Strictly family has not been jeopardised as a result of this, it was previously reported that show bosses were left "furious" by her diagnosis as it was claimed she "must have broken the strict guidelines".

The source told the same publication that at least four other member's of the show's crew were now in isolation, too, after they came into contact with Katya.

“The BBC’s top brass are mutinous. Obviously everyone is glad Katya is okay but they put incredibly strict rules in place for a reason – to keep everyone safe.

“It’s been drummed into everyone that they need to follow protocol at all times – and some are saying that Katya has clearly broken the rules."

The insider went on to explain that some members of the show believe Katya may have gotten the deadly virus after going out to grab a sandwich during a break in training.

“Katya has been living alone at her flat and people have speculated whether she caught it when she went to grab a sandwich during a break in training.

“The BBC have since spoken to all the celebs and dancers and they’ve been told to bring in packed lunches from now on," they continued.

“Apparently they’re all really paranoid because Katya had no symptoms and it’s a miracle Nicola didn’t get it as they were dancing so closely. The celebs have also all asked their families to isolate as much as possible, and get supermarket deliveries.

“Since they found out at least four people who work on the show have had to go into isolation – and obviously that could increase. It’s basically Strictly’s worst nightmare.”
