Katya Jones, 30, was partnered with Nicola Adams, 38, on the latest series of Strictly Come Dancing. The two were the first same-sex dance couple, but were forced to drop out of the competition earlier this month after Katya tested positive for Covid-19.
The Strictly professional issued a cheeky warning to the Olympian after Nicola suggested that Katya would “blame herself” after the pair were forced to leave the competition.
The dancing duo joined It Takes Two host Rylan Clark-Neal, when he revealed the duo will dance together again during the final.
“I can now confirm that these guys will in fact be dancing in the finals, however not for the trophy, it wouldn’t be fair,” he shared, adding that the pair will be dancing a “brand new routine”.
Rylan then went on to quiz the pair about their swift exit from the dance competition.

“I didn’t want her blaming herself because it wasn’t her fault and I didn’t see it that way.”
Also on the show, Katya revealed that she initially pleaded for Nicola to be able to continue dancing without her.
“I just kept asking ‘Can Nicola carry on?’ Because obviously that’s all I wanted for her. But, hey, we’re doing our part,” she said.
“Everyone’s being kept safe and these are the rules… of course gutted and absolutely heartbroken.”
