Strictly's Adam Peaty and Katya Jones are all smiles after their 'near-kiss' on the show

STRICTLY'S Adam Peaty and Katya Jones were all smiles as they headed out for a lunch break during rehearsals for Saturday night's show.

The pair looked happy in each other's company as they grabbed a bite to eat.

Swimmer Adam, 26, braved the cold in a white t-shirt, grey tracksuits and a pair of Nike trainers.

Meanwhile Katya, 32, opted for a brown midi puffer coat, black leggings and matching trainers.

The dancer styled her hair into two buns and finished the look with a red lip.

They could be seen laughing and joking around after picking up some food from a local shop.

The two sipped on some colourful drinks as they made their way back to the studio.

Last month the two set tounges wagging after the Olympian appeared to "try to kiss" his dance partner live on TV.

Viewers of the BBC dance competition saw the dad-of-one "lean in" for a peck after their sizzling Argentine Tango, before Katya pulled away.

It came just hours after Adam's girlfriend Eiri Munro flashed her toned tummy in a mirror selfie, captioning it "not worried".

Days later Adam accused viewers of "getting carried away" after his "near-kiss" on Zoe Ball Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2.

He said: "It's about being believable as well. You don't want to do a dance like that and not do it justice because you haven't switched on right at the end.

"So it's being believable and that's what some people get carried away with.

"But hey ho, that's life."

Weeks later Adam's girlfriend artist Eiri – who is mother to his child George – warned Russian beauty Katya to not get too close to her man.

She posted a tongue-in-cheek TikTok video teasing Olympic swim champ Adam, “If I see you with another girl I’ll kill her” — while she ran her thumb across her throat.

Eiri later revealed that she had to quit social media because of the online abuse that she was receiving over the "near kiss".

Earlier this week Katya and Adam looked closer than ever as they left It Takes Two together.

Last month, The Sun revealed that close friends had warned Katya not to fall victim to the Strictly curse — three years after she was pictured kissing her celebrity partner Seann Walsh.

She was still married to fellow pro Neil Jones at the time and the comedian was in a relationship with actress Rebecca Humphries, which then ended.

Six months later Katya and Neil went their separate ways.

Adam and Eiri met on dating app Tinder and were first pictured together in 2020.

They announced they were expecting their first child in April 2020 and welcomed George into the world in September last year.
