Adams ‘devastated’ after Katya Jones’s positive test ends first same-sex partnership on show
Nicola Adams and her dance partner Katya Jones have been forced to pull out of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing series after Jones tested positive for Covid-19. The Olympic gold-winning medal boxer said she was “absolutely devastated” at having to withdraw early.
Adams and Jones were the first same-sex couple to compete on the flagship BBC dance contest. While the Russian professional dancer tested positive she has not displayed any symptoms, but will still have to self-isolate. Adams has so far tested negative, as have the rest of the cast.
