Strictly’s Tony Adams labels dance partner Katya Jones ‘overly critical’ in sly dig

Strictly Come Dancing 's Tony Adams has labelled his dance partner Katya Jones as "overly critical" in a sly dig on her coaching style.

The pair appeared on Good Morning Britain as they spoke to hosts Susana Reid and Ed Balls, who have both previously starred on Strictly before.

Former footballing star Tony, 56, and his pro partner Katya discussed the "row" that happened on last week's show, that was caught on camera, as they appeared to get irate with each other.

They weren't there to deny that there was ever any tension between them, as when asked about the supposed row, Tony replied: “We constantly argue, don’t we?”

Katya then joked: “We just don’t like each other at all, we don’t get on!”

Tony continued: “We’ve had two months together now. She’s been training me and the routines she’s putting on are incredible. And sometimes when I miss a step."

Taking a thinly-veiled dig at Katya, Tony continued: "Sometimes she’s a little bit over critical and I just want to have a good time as well.

“So I think it’s a balance between maybe letting me make a mistake and enjoying myself a little bit at times… I’m not an expert in this field.”

Tony and Katya, who have reached the middle stage of the competition, found themselves at the bottom of the leaderboard this week, just one point behind Ellie Taylor and Johannes Radebe.

They performed a salsa routine, however, Tony fumbled through a few of the steps, leaving Katya frustrated with him.

During the closing moments of the show, as the hosts Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly were wrapping things up, Tony and Katya could be seen behind the duo looking angry and gesticulating at each other.

They were awarded just 21 out of 40 for their routine, which no doubt came as a blow after Tony wowed the judges the week before, with him and Katya performing a quickstep to "The Devil Went Down To Georgia" by The Charlie Daniels Band.

They were awarded 31 out of 40 from the judges, who were left blown away by the former footballer's dance skills.

Speaking about their lacklustre routine this week, head judge Shirley Ballas said: "Well Tony, I actually thought you tried to give me rotation when you stepped backwards.

She added: "It is just an absolute shame you got on the wrong foot. You made too many mistakes, they were one after another."

However, Shirley did note that Tony had improved on his technical skills in comparison to previous performances.
