STRICTLY Come Dancing’s Gorka has spoken out over Adam Peaty’s ‘almost kiss’ saying ‘they were into the moment.’
The pro dancer waded into the debate after fans were convinced the ‘Strictly curse’ had struck again after THAT Argentine Tango.
Fans took to Twitter in shock after the believed Olympic swimmer, Adam, 26, leaned in for a kiss with Katya after their hot dance last Saturday.
Defending the dance duo, the 31-year-old Spaniard said the near clinch was all just part of the performance.
He said on Steph’s Packed Lunch on Monday: “I think it was just the end of the routine.
“They were into the moment of the dance.
“The Argentine Tango is very passionate, and they finished it like that.
I think it was just the character of the dance.”

Meanwhile Adam has lashed out as rumours swirl about his near-kiss with Katya Jones.
He warned there are “real life consequences” after the awkward moment on last night’s live show.
Sharing footage of his performance on Twitter, Adam said: “My favourite dance so far. Thank you to everyone who has sent supporting messages! I loved it.
“To everyone who wants to see what they want, your comments have real life consequences.
“I will not be overcome or lowered by your gossip. Protect your energy.”
Adam – who is in a relationship with artist Eirianedd Munro – also posted a cryptic Instagram message about “real ones”.
The dad-of-one, who has been with Eiri for less than two years, wrote to his 570k followers on his Instagram Story: “You soon realise who the real ones are.”
Eirianedd, 23, also addressed the situation on social media.
Just hours before their dance, Eiri – who Adam shares 13-month-old George-Anderson with – had insisted she’s “not worried” in a cryptic Instagram post.
