Katya Jones joked she had received no special treatment when she arrived at the signing at a Waterstones store, quipping that she was made to wait in line to get her hands on a copy of Adam Peaty’s book, The Gladiator Mindset. 

In a selfie posted to her official Instagram, Katya further promoted the publication with an adorable photo, as she grinned alongside Adam.

Can’t believe Adam made me queue to get my signed copy

“Can’t believe @adam_peaty made me queue to get my signed copy,” the Russian dancer expressed to her social media fans.

“Strictly update: his feet have recovered and he is still inspiring the nation! Keep Dominating. Always be better than yesterday (although I used to tell him “be better than your last go).”

Fans were quick to leave their reactions in the comments section, with many gushing over how happy they were to see the pair reunited so soon after being given the boot on Strictly two weeks ago.

“The dream team! Lovely photo of you both. Sorely missed on strictly and hope to see you dancing together again very soon!” user speedochick wrote, adding: “The Argentine Tango was my favourite”.

Another fan, andrei_toader_15, made light of Katya having to wait in the queue for her signed copy, writing: “Love the book, got my signed copy!! Got to say it is worth queuing up for What an inspiration!”

The Olympic champion was eliminated from Strictly after failing to impress viewers — and the judges — with his Jive routine, which had only earned Adam a measly 27 points.

However, after he departed the BBC One show, his mother Caroline took matters into her own hands, insisting that she wasn’t “buying” the public vote, before claiming the  programme is “fixed”.

She also asserted that the critique from the judges generally hadn’t always been consistent or fair — not just with Adam, but with his fellow celebrities too.

Many fans agreed with Caroline’s comments, including Katya, who said that her celeb partner was “a dancer inside” in a separate post following their defeat. has contacted a representative of the BBC for comment.

Adam later addressed his mum’s social media rant during an appearance on BBC Breakfast. 

The 26-year-old was quick to defend his mother after the question was brought up, to which Adam responded: “I agree with you, mums are always going to support their own.

“She wanted to see me every Saturday night – you know how mums get, bless her.

“I love her to bits, she loves me to bits,” he continued.

“I think she just wanted me to do a Paso (Doble), that’s all she wanted to see me do… for me, if anyone can lose well it’s me, and everyone in that competition, they are incredible people, and I’m glad I’m out because I don’t deserve to be there.”

And while he was gutted to be leaving Strictly, Adam admitted to feeling mental and physical fatigue during the weeks he competed on the ballroom show, which is why he went on to deem his exit as “bittersweet”.

He recalled his lengthy practising hours while speaking on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, adding that he was overcome with sadness over missing out on the chance to perform a Paso Doble.

But he did get to return home to his family, which felt just as good after feeling depleted from the hectic schedule he’d been under for well over a month.

“Honestly, it’s bittersweet because I came out and I wanted to do the Paso, for example, but I get to do other things like spend more time at home with my family and I hope to do more stuff hopefully inspiring people with my book.”

He continued: “There’s so much going on. I’m not a negative person.”

Strictly returns Saturday at 6.40pm on BBC One.
