Who is Strictly's Adam Peaty?

Swimmer Peaty is joining the show soon after his Olympic success.

The swimmer, 26, clinched two golds and a silver in Tokyo.

After the Games he said he would take a break from the pool, and we now know that one of things filling the gap will be the BBC ballroom contest.

Peaty said learning how to dance would be a good way of keeping fit during his time off from his usual routine.

He has admitted to being a bit nervous about the competition, which he said may end up being the first time he’s felt really uncomfortable.
