Katya Jones, 33, took to Instagram to reassure her fans that she and Arsenal legend Tony Adams, 56, have been working incredibly hard each week to secure their place in the competition. The Strictly Come Dancing star’s candid admission that their performances are “not perfect” comes after Tony avoided the dance-off – despite once again landing in last place on the leaderboard. 

Katya thanked her 212,000 Instagram followers for their support as she posted a cute selfie with Tony to her story.

“Thank you so much everyone!” She began with a prayer emoji. 

“I can reassure you that we are doing nothing less but working our butts off and learning learning learning.

“Not every week comes out as perfect as we rehearse, fears and nerves still show up,” she continued.

“But as long as you’re here to support our journey and want to see us dance – we shall keep going and giving our everything!” (sic) 

On Saturday, Tony and Katya landed at the bottom of the leaderboard with just 19 points, but Sunday’s results show saw the pair avoid the dance-off once more. 

The duo danced the Cha Cha Cha to the Grandstand Theme Tune by Keith Mansfield as part of a wider celebration of 100 years of the BBC.

Despite receiving the lowest scores from the judges, the popular pair continue to be saved by the public week after week. 

Last night, it was comedian Jayde Adams who bid a sad farewell after she and her partner Karen Hauer were placed in the bottom two.

The couple, who had been ranked in ninth place out of a total 12 couples by the judges, competed against Molly Rainford and Carlos Gu, who had placed in seventh. 

The dance-off saw Molly and Carlos perform their couple’s choice to the Grange Hill Theme Tune.

Meanwhile, Jayde and Karen performed an entertaining Charleston to The Ballad Of Barry and Freda (Let’s Do It).

In the end, all four judges chose to save Molly and Carlos, and Jayde shared her emotional parting speech to partner Karen. 

Unfortunately, some viewers were less than impressed by the outcome of the public vote, with many taking to social media to share their frustrations

Nikkie raged: “How can this be right that they’re in the bottom 2 and Tony sales through yet again?? Now tell me it’s not a fix. It’s a disgrace.” (sic)

Courtney fumed: “Oh look at that, two amazing dancers in the dance-off while Tony Adams will come back next week having the same feedback since WEEK 1! this is madness! #Strictly WHAT’S GOING ON? #StrictlyComeDancing2022.” (sic)

“Fix again! @bbcstrictly Tony Adams still in? Really?” Jill Lyons quizzed.

While Kelly said: “The theme failed the pros and celebs this week. A shame that Jayde went over the likes of Tony, her parting speech was lovely #strictly.”

“Jayde and Karen were robbed, this should have easily been a week where Tony should have gone,” @Wandoful raged.

However, other viewers felt the judges made the right decision in sending Jayde home, with Caz tweeting: “As great as she has been, Jayde was the right person to go tonight. It was the weakest of all the routines, and of her own routines. I blame whoever choreographed it really!”

Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday at 6.50pm for a Halloween Special on BBC One.
