Adam Peaty wowed judges at last night's Strictly Come Dancing live show as he performed his first live dance with dancing partner, Katya Jones.
The Uttoxeter born Olympic swimmer danced the Cha Cha to Madcon's Beggin', recently made popular by Eurovision winners and Italian rock band Måneskin.
Their dance wowed the judges with judges Shirley Ballas and Craig Revel Horwood unable to hide their delight.

First up was Craig who told Adam: "I was glued to every inch of movement darling, you couldn't get my eyes off it I'm afraid. Fantastic, really masculine, strong, going for gold."
Fellow judge Motsi Mabuse added: "I just fell in love with some of those movements. You have such a refreshing energy and a charisma. Oh my word, I can't wait for the next 16 weeks!"
Shirley was up next and she couldn't have agreed more, and told him: "It was effortless and it moved in every direction and the back part of the body was oozing and a beautiful shape on the New Yorker chemistry.
"And at the end when you tossed your little leg over, I am in awe. That is amazing., well done!" she added.
Anton Du Beke was last to give his comments on their dance. He added: "Well I'm not quite sure what you've done to the rest of this panel, but listen, it was incredible. It's tremendous, if you just keep that going throughout the series, you'll be just fine, brilliant."
Viewers tuning in at home were quick to make the comparison to 2019 winner and Emmerdale actor Kelvin Fletcher and took to Twitter to comment, reports The Mirror.
One person commented: "last time they were all this flustered was Kelvin Fletcher's first week #Strictly."
Another posted: "I knew Adam was underselling himself. I reckon he’s the Kelvin of this series. He had all the hips, can’t wait to see him in the ballroom. I mean he’s not exactly hard to look at either, is he? #Strictly."
Both Craig and Motsi gave Adam and Katya a seven, with Shirley and Anton giving the pair an eight, taking their score to 30.
Television presenter AJ Odudu topped the leaderboard with a score of 34 from the judges, with Adam and Katya finishing in joint second with Great British Bake Off star John Whaite and his partner Johannes Radebe, the first all-male partnership in the show's history.
