Adam Peaty has described his shock elimination from Strictly Come Dancing earlier this month as "bittersweet".
The 26-year-old - a three-time Olympic swimming champion - had been among the favourites to make it to the latter stages of the contest but instead found himself the sixth celebrity voted off in a shock result.
Reflecting on his time on the show, Peaty told Good Morning Britain: "Physically and mentally, it's so fatiguing. You've got a learn a dance in three days, and then perform on a Thursday, Friday, Saturday as such. You've got to have it in the bag by Thursdays.
"Honestly, it's bittersweet because I came out and I wanted to do the Paso, for example, but I get to do other things like spend more time at home with my family and I hope to do more stuff hopefully inspiring people with my book."
Peaty, who became known as 'Peachy' Peaty due to his tight outfits, had been partnered up with 2017 champion Katya Jones.body check tags ::
