Strictlys Adam Peaty undergoes tattoo transformation during rehearsal

Adam Peaty has given fans a peek at his face covered in tattoos – but don't worry guys, they aren't real.

The Olympic champion was having a little play around with Instagram filters during a break from Strictly training with his pro partner Katya Jones.

The snap he posted on Instagram shows the star with a huge butterfly inking on his throat. Etchings of bugs, including a wasp and a worm, cover his face and he is wearing a nose ring.

He also shared a video of Katya trying the app, asking fans: "Who wore it better?"

Adam, 26, did well in his first week in the BBC ballroom competition, coming second on the leaderboard after Saturday night's show.

But he has now confessed that this week he had a hard day of training for week two, which left him asking why he had signed up for the show.

Discussing how rehearsals were going, Adam said in a video on Instagram: "We are getting there on the second routine.

"I'm really going through it so fast, like, such a difference from the Cha Cha Cha. That was quick but this is just new level.

"Yesterday I really struggled and questioned myself why do I do this and why am I doing this, because nothing was clicking."

He went on: "But for some reason overnight, a bit of rest and a bit of just thinking about it overnight, it's just really really helped and I'm in a happy space again so I'm enjoying it and hopefully, hopefully, I can relax into it."

The swimmer – who was a gold medallist in Tokyo this summer – said he is really hoping that this week's dance is a cracker.

"I mean, I want every week to be good, but obviously this is the first week where voting opens as well," he said.

"It is going to be exciting!"
