Watch: Tony Adams and Katya Jones admit they argue all the time
As the credits rolled on the Saturday night live show in Week 7, Adams and Jones could be seen having a heated discussion in the background.
The former England manager, 56, and the professional dancer, 33, appeared together on Good Morning Britain where they admitted they "constantly argue" because rehearsals are so intense.
Adams said: “We’ve had two months together now. She’s been training me, she's a genius, the routines she’s putting on are incredible.
"And sometimes when I miss a step, sometimes she’s a little bit over critical and I just want to have a good time as well."
GMB host Ed Balls, who was partnered with Jones on the show in 2016, said: "But she always thinks you can do better, and that makes you better."
Adams added: “So I think it’s a balance between maybe letting me make a mistake and enjoying myself a little bit at times… I’m not an expert in this field.”
Jones joked: “We just don’t like each other at all, we don’t get on!”
The retired footballer confessed he cried for the first month of rehearsals as he found them so "brutal".
He said he was: “Physically, emotionally, mentally in bits… every week you’re learning a new skill and it’s just brutal.”
Adams was very disappointed with his own performance after making multiple mistakes in his Salsa and struggling with some risky lifts, scoring just 21/40 from the judges.
After the clip of their performance was played at the end of the show, Jones could be seen with her back to camera, confronting Adams, who appeared to be demonstrating a move to her before shrugging and shaking his head, speaking rapidly.
Despite being bottom of the leaderboard, the pair yet again escaped the dance off and so have made it through to Week 8 of the celebrity dance contest.
Jones said on social media: "THANK YOU for voting us through to week 8!! We are beyond grateful ! And we hope you can see how hard we are trying ! So if want to see us dance another week, so we will keep doing so trying our best!
"@tonyadamsofficial impresses me every day! I’m just loving every single day teaching him to dance, seeing his improvement and growth! We are not here to play it safe cause life really begins at the end of your comfort zone! Let’s gooooo."
