Nicola Adams confirms return for Strictly final with Katya after Covid scare

Strictly Come Dancing star Nicola Adams has confirmed she will be back for the show’s upcoming final.

The Olympic boxer was forced to quit the long-running BBC competition after her professional dance partner Katya Jones tested positive for coronavirus.

The couple made history as the first same-sex pairing on the show, and were doing well in the contest until it was brought to a halt.

But Nicola has revealed it is not the end of her Strictly stint.

Fans learned about her return during Wednesday night’s It Takes Two, where Rylan Clark-Neal announced the exciting news.

The former Celebrity Big Brother star exclaimed: “You did give us a little tease didn’t you, that maybe a little return to the dancefloor darling, might be happening.

“I can now confirm that these guys will in fact be dancing in the finals. However, not for the trophy, it wouldn’t be fair.”

Nicola and Katya were so excited that they jumped up out of their seats.

The athlete seemingly confirmed the news on last week’s show, but left her fans guessing as she didn’t say when.

However she has cemented the news in place for once and for all.

Fans couldn’t contain their excitement over the announcement and took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

One fan gushed: “So good to see Nicola and Katya back together. I’m still so sad they had to leave the competition, but glad they’re both ok and YAY for dancing the final #ItTakesTwo.”

Katya was so excited that she jumped up

“Yay, Nicola and Katya doing a turn in the final just had to be done! Cancel the performance from a random popstar #ItTakesTwo,” a second shared.

A third said: “So nice that we’ll see Katya and Nicola in the finals show. A shame they couldn’t just slot them back in to the comp.”

*Strictly Come Dancing returns Saturday on BBC One.
