‘It didn’t go down well,’ Adam Peaty says on Strictly about his missing son’s birthday.
ADAM PEATY has spoken out about the difficulties that come with the demanding training hours of Strictly Come Dancing, including missing his son’s first birthday.
This year’s Strictly Come Dancing features Adam Peaty, 26, and Katya Jones, 32. In a new interview, the Olympian discusses missing his son’s first birthday due to Strictly rehearsals.
Everyone must comprehend.
While training at Loughborough University, the award-winning Olympian met his partner Eirianedd Munro.
The couple revealed they were expecting their first child together in April 2020.
On September 11 of the same year, George-Anderson Adetola Peaty was born.
Adam revealed to the Sunday Mirror that he missed his son’s first birthday because to Strictly.
When asked if he could celebrate his son’s birthday, he said: “No, we were filming on that particular day.
“We finished at 10.30 p.m., so I drove home immediately, ready to celebrate the next day.
“It didn’t go over well, but that’s part of the challenge when you’re doing this.”
“Everyone needs to understand,” he added.

Last night, Adam went to the dance floor with a routine inspired by the blockbuster flick Avatar.
They danced a Rumba to Leona Lewis’ I See You, seeking to improve on their Quickstep scores from the previous week.
Unfortunately, despite the judges’ appreciation for the Olympic swimmer, his scores did not reflect this, as he finished at the bottom of the BBC show’s leaderboard.
Craig Revel Horwood, a judge, stated: “Yes, it’s a difficult one.
“If I’m being really honest, that looked a little weird on you.
He remarked, “The hip action was forced and not from the leg,” but praised the Olympian for the lifts and enthusiasm throughout the performance.
Anton was the last to speak, and he said Adam’s dance was of high quality, particularly in terms of lines.
Due to his Olympic experience, Adam will be used to receiving criticism and will seek to improve each week.
At the 2016 Summer Olympics, he became the first male British swimmer to win a gold medal in the 100 meter breaststroke in 24 years.
In 2021, he even defended his championship at the Summer Olympics in 2020.
Adam is also a contributor to the “Brinkwire Summary News.”
