Nicola Adams and Katya Jones make epic return to Strictly after coronavirus saw them axed from competition

NICOLA Adams and Katya Jones made an epic return to Strictly after coronavirus saw them axed from the competition.

The Olympian, 38, was forced to pull out of the competition after her professional Katya, as well as four crew members, caught Covid.

However, Nicola's been given another chance to appear on the dance floor with a brand new routine.

Host Claudia Winkleman said: "That was unbelievable, thank you so much Nicola and Katya."

Fans were amazed with the performance, with one person saying: "Okay, so what's the number to vote for Nicola and Katya? #strictly #strictlycomedancing #StrictlyFinal #Strictly2020"

Another added: "Oh what could have been… Nicola and Katya giving us a sensual, sexy, raunchy dance in hold with lifts. We were robbed."

A third remarked: "Brilliant from Nicola and Katya. #Strictly"

The women were the first same-sex pairing in the show's history and were devastated to have to make a premature exit from the competition after Katya tested positive for Covid-19, despite having no symptoms.

Nicola previously said the removal from the competition was "frustrating".

The star told Zoe Ball on BBC Two's It Takes Two: "I'm doing OK thanks.
