Katya Jones and Nicola Adams had to pull out of Strictly after the pro dancer’s positive coronavirus diagnosis
A source close to Katya said: “She was inconsolable about having to leave the competition, she was so excited about being in the first same-sex couple and she really thought it was her chance to restore her battered ‘kissgate’ image.
“She wants to be remembered for all the right reasons not the wrong ones.”
After Katya’s Covid diagnosis, Nicola Adams has vowed to ‘keep on dancing’ with her pro partner.

She will continue practicing her moves with girlfriend Ella Baig at home – and isn’t ruling out continuing her training with Kayta in the future.
“Nicola is gutted that her Strictly journey has come to end so prematurely,” a source told The Sun Online.
“Not only was she loving her time on the show. But she adored the whole process of learning to dance and all the different skills she was acquiring along the way.
“Katya was an amazing teacher and Nicola is planning to carry on training even though she is no longer on the show.
Katya won Strictly with Joe McFadden three years ago
“She has just had a new studio designed at home with Ella so they have the space to practice. It means although her story on the show is over she can carry on dancing.
“Nicola would love to meet up and dance with Kayta again one day too. They got on brilliantly and one of the hardest things for Nicola is that she won’t be able to see her again. But the most important thing, above anything else, is that Katya is OK.”
Stunning Katya won the series in 2017 with Holby City actor Joe McFadden, 45.
