'It wasn't easy for me to watch Adam's sexy dances with Katya', says Strictly star's girlfriend

STRICTLY star Adam Peaty's girlfriend Eiri Munro has admitted it was tough watching his sexy dances with Katya Jones.

The pair were eliminated from the competition last week, but up until then had entertained fans with their sizzling chemistry.

Eiri, 23, said she never had any worries the Strictly curse would strike her relationship, but admitted the intensity of the pair's Tango, in which viewers claimed the pair nearly kissed, was tough to watch.

Speaking to The Mail, she said: "Adam warned me last night that this week's routine, the Argentine tango, is a 'very sexy dance'. I was like, 'Yeah, that's fine, I can handle it'.

"But watching, at home with my mum, woah, it's intense."

She added: "It's not easy for me as Adam's partner to watch, but I know in order for them to continue in the competition they have to 100 per cent commit to the role."

Early on in the competition Adam had to miss son George's first birthday due to the gruelling demands of his 12 hour daily training sessions.

Eiri admitted they underestimated how absent from the family home Adam was going to be, and when he did come back he was often exhausted.

However, she got behind him as best she could, supporting him throughout and cooking his favourite meals such as cottage pie and grilled steak.

When George saw his dad dressed as a character from Avatar during movie week the tot's reaction melted his mum's heart.

She said: "The delight in his face makes all these long days, feeling like a single mum, worthwhile."

Olympian Adam, 26, recently opened up about how he handled the furore around the 'near kiss'.

Discussing his career as a competitive swimmer, the hunk explained that he is able to "channel rage".

As a result, the online claims about his and Katya's closeness didn't make him angry "at all", with the star telling The Mirror: "Where would that anger be pointed? There’s nowhere to put it, because it’s not true."

At the time, Adam issued a brief statement via Twitter, which warned: "Your comments have real life consequences."
