Strictly pro Katya Jones says dance partner Nicola Adams lacks 'natural grace'

STRICTLY pro Katya    Jones says dance partner Nicola Adams   lacks “natural grace”.

But she feels the ­Olympic boxing champ has “aggressive positivity” that will help her improve.

Katya 31, says she has the ability to whip anyone into shape, citing ex dance partner Ed Balls, 53, as an example.

She said: “Nicola is my fifth dance partner and there have been some who were . . .  problematic, let’s say.

“And even if you take Nicola, she does not have ­natural grace, plasticity. But, if you apply the right method, I believe anyone can learn.”

They came third on the BBC1 show’s leaderboard last week.

Katya, who is making ­history in the show’s first same-sex couple with Nicola, 38, said gender was irrelevant.

In an interview in her home country of Russia, she added: “I love this term — aggressive positivity, it’s kind of such an optimistic-aggressive attitude.

“There should be ‘chemistry’. It doesn’t matter with a man or a woman.In terms of ­choreography, a new door has opened for me — who is the leader, who’s the follower?”
