Broadcaster Dan Wootton made a sly dig about professional dancer Katya Jones’ past during a GB News interview. His swipe came when he was discussing the “saucy” Argentine Tango routine Katya and partner Adam Peaty performed on Saturday’s instalment of Strictly Come Dancing. Dan ended up probing former Strictly pro Kristina Rihanoff on Monday’s episode of GB News about the “intense” moment. 

Adam, 26, and Katya, 32, have made it through to the next round of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing competition. 

However, the Olympic champion and the Russian-born dancer sparked a frenzy after they performed a sultry Argentine Tango last weekend.

The pair left fans stunned when they appeared close to kissing at the end of their routine after viewers noted the “intensity” of their dance. 

When ex-Strictly dancer Kristina Rihanoff appeared on Monday’s instalment of GB News to be interviewed by journalist Dan Wootton, he couldn’t resist quizzing her about the “saucy” routine. 

During the live interview, Dan told Kristina: “This was quite something, oh my goodness. 

“So Adam Peaty is the Olympic swimmer, but he’s got a woman who is the mother of his baby.

“But Kristina, was that just acting with Katya Jones?

“I have to be honest with you, we know Katya’s history and to me, that looked saucy.”

Dan’s jibe was centred around Katya’s kiss with former Strictly partner Seann Walsh in 2018. 

Sadly, Katya and fellow pro Neil Jones revealed in September 2019 they had separated, with their announcement coming 10 months after she was pictured kissing her former Strictly dance partner Seann.

Katya and Neil were together for 11 years and at the time of their separation, they issued a joint statement saying they wanted to remain friends. 

Dan added: “I don’t know anything, I am just saying what I saw with my two eyes.”

In response to Dan’s swipe, Kristina said: “I am not in that bubble anymore.

“Look, I think there is a lot to say about that acting as well, they are both in it, he is as in it as much as she is. 

“We can see the intensity in his eyes and at the end, he is sort of pulling himself back out of that character. 

“I think they had a lot to prove that week because the one before wasn’t perhaps up to standard.”

Following speculation of an almost-kiss on social media, Adam responded on Twitter about the moment.

Adam wrote: “My favourite dance so far. Thank you to everyone who has sent supporting messages! I loved it.

“To everyone who wants to see what they want, your comments have real-life consequences. I will not be overcome or lowered by your gossip. Protect your energy.”

Adam is in a relationship with his girlfriend Eirianedd Munro and the couple share a son together.

Strictly Come Dancing airs Saturday on BBC One at 6.45pm.
