Adam Peaty’s girlfriend Eiri Munro, 23, has reacted to Strictly Come Dancing viewers’ claims that the champion swimmer, 26, and his dance partner Katya Jones, 32, “almost kissed” live on the BBC show last night.
Eiri took to her TikTok account to break her silence on the moment in a reaction video following the pair’s sultry Argentine Tango routine.
In the video shared with her 31,000 followers, Eiri pretended to cry while the caption read: “Watching your boyfriend almost kiss another woman on live tv.”
She then whipped her head backwards while pretending to scream as the words, “Finding out 10 million people also watched it live”, were written across the clip.
Express.co.uk has contacted representatives for Adam and Strictly for comment.
It comes after eagle-eyed Strictly fans rushed to Twitter to claim that Adam had “tried to kiss” his dance partner after completing their routine.
Adam and Katya could be seen sharing an embrace on the dance floor.
Adam then stared deeply into his dance partner’s eyes before the pair shared a hug and went to the judges for their feedback.
However, viewers believed that the dancing duo “almost kissed” in the intense moment.
Twitter user Carol Thomson claimed: “Oh dear… I’ve rewound to watch that cringe moment where Katya had to stop Adam from kissing her on #Strictly.”
