Olympic swimmer Adam Peaty’s, 26, girlfriend Eiri Munro, has spoken out about the fallout after his “almost kiss” with Strictly dancer partner Katya Jones two weeks ago. 23-year-old Eiri admitted she had to take a break from social media after she was inundated with abusive comments.

I am trying to lay it to rest now as I am tired

It comes after Adam and Katya performed a passionate tango on the BBC show that ended with them face-to-face.

Rumours immediately began to spin that the pair were close to sharing a smooch, but they immediately shut down the claims.

In a recent interview, Eiri said: “I have been receiving a lot of hate on the internet – people saying really horrible stuff.

“I am trying to lay it to rest now as I am tired.”

She thanked those who have supported her throughout the difficult time in a new TikTok video, where she explained how grateful she is.

“I want to say thank you to everyone,” she explained.

“It makes me a bit emotional. To everyone that has been really nice to me, because last week was a lot.

“Even when it’s a thousand nice comments and one mean one, it’s so easy to feel like the world is against you and it did feel like that for a while.”

Eiri added: “I then had a reality check and I remembered that I am not that important.

“But you guys made me feel so much better, those that were checking up on me and those that were commenting. Thank you.”

She concluded her message, saying: “You saved my life.”

Adam hit back at the rumours last week, warning those who took part in spreading the rumours that their words have consequences.

“To everyone who wants to see what they want, your comments have real-life consequences,” he said.

“I will not be overcome by your gossip.”

Adam and Katya made it through to week six, after owning the dance floor on Saturday night with their energetic Samba.

They performed to Faith by George Michael, with the swimmer sporting a tight-fitting pair of jeans.

Ahead of this week’s live show, the pair have been rehearsing hard but while Adam was squeezing in a swimming session into is hectic Strictly training schedule, the athlete soon realised that he’d made a spray tan error when he got undressed.

As he was wearing jeans and a T-shirt for his performance, he only got the upper half of his body done.

But when he stripped down to his swimming trunks for his session in the pool, the mistake was obvious for all to see, as his legs were a completely different shade to the rest of his body.

Noticing the amusing mishap, Adam posed for a picture before sharing it online, in view of his 138,100 Twitter followers.

Alongside the picture, he wrote: “I should’ve probably got my legs spray tanned too. Completely forgot my actual job requires me to be almost naked.”
