Taking to Instagram a short time after their elimination, Adam shared a lengthy message with his fans along with a series of snapshots showing him and Katya together. "What an experience @bbcstrictly has been," he wrote.

"I'm so grateful for my time on this show, from the highs of performing in front of millions and the extreme challenge of learning a new routine within 3 days every week, it's been incredible.

"I didn't know how much it meant to me until I got a bit emotional after my dance-off; however, I don't think it was the dancing that pushed me over the edge, but the two years of the constant challenge with myself combined with the energy to win the Olympics and becoming a father at the same time."

Of his partner, the athlete said: "Thank you Katya for being there every single day, you are incredible. I don't have enough positive words for you and what an amazing person and dancer you are. Thank you to everyone behind the scenes, you are brilliant. I'm so grateful for everyone who has made this experience so amazing."

"Time to get some rest (although my book launches this week!!!) I’ll come back the strongest version of the real me and I can’t wait to start racing again!"
