Adam Peaty became the sixth star to be eliminated from the 2021 series of Strictly Come Dancing on Sunday night.
Olympian Adam, 26, took to the ballroom with partner Katya Jones in a bid to impress judges Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Anton Du Beke, Head Judge, Shirley Ballas and the public.
However the star was eliminated from the contest after going head to head with Tilly Ramsay and Nikita Kuzmin.
Adam Peaty and his partner Katya Jones performed their Jive to Little Bitty Pretty One by Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers, in a bid to impress judges.
And Tilly Ramsay and her partner Nikita Kuzmin performed their Tango to Kings and Queens by Ava Max.
However the results came in, and it was time for Adam and Katya to say their goodbyes.
Craig Revel Horwood chose to save Tilly and Nikita, and said: "Firstly, I wouldn’t have put these couples in the bottom. That’s just me personally, but seeing they are there and I’ve got to choose, I’m finding it really difficult tonight and this isn’t like me."
"But for the reason of a better dancer and a better dance off scenario, I’m going to choose to save Nikita and Tilly."
Motsi Mabuse chose to save Tilly and Nikita too.
Motsi said: "I mean, it has been a tough competition. All the couples have performed really, really well.
"One of the biggest lessons I’ve ever learned while judging is music is key, and I think the couple for me that was more sound to the music is going to be Tilly and Nikita.'"

Anton Du Beke chose to save Tilly and Nikita, and explained: "Well, this was a great dance off. I’m delighted for both couples performing that well in the dance off.
"If you have a dance off, you want both people to dance really, really well and they both did. I found it so equal I was desperate for something to happen to make me choose and there was a moment in one of the dances that made me decide and that was Tilly and Nikita."

Head Judge Shirley Ballas was the last to vote, and she said she would have decided to save Adam and Katya.
Shirley said: "No, I would have saved Adam and Katya."
Discussing their journey on the show, the dancing duo thanked everyone involved, including those behind-the-scenes, and fans.
Adam told Tess: "I have absolutely loved every single challenge. I’ve never had a challenge like this.
"As an Olympian for 16 years, I’ve pushed my body to places that I never thought it could be pushed. This is just a whole new ballgame and I’ve got so much respect for everyone that dances across the world and to all of these contestants and pros that put themselves on the line every single week, it’s just been a great experience."
Adam continued: "I just want to say thank you to Katya, everyone behind the scenes, all the judges, wardrobe, make-up artists… absolutely everyone."
The remaining couples will take to the dancefloor next when Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday 13 November at 6:40pm, with the results show on Sunday 14 November at 7:20pm on BBC One.
