The hip-focused cha-cha choreography was performed on Maneskin’s song “Beggin ‘” and earned them a score of 30 out of a maximum of 40 points.

The duo received praise from the judges: “I was stuck with every inch of movement darling, you couldn’t take your eyes off him, I’m afraid”, judge Craig Revel Horwood noted. “Fantastic, really masculine, strong, in search of gold.”

“It was effortless and it moved in all directions and the back part of the body was oozing and a nice shape on the New Yorker chemistry,” another judge said, Shirley ballas.

“I never thought I would have so much fun being completely out of my comfort zone,” Peaty shared on social media Friday. “The hard work is done, let’s enjoy it @katyajones.”

His success and the positive reviews from the judges so far indicate he is unlikely to get the early exit he needs to be back in Italy in time for the International Swimming League qualifiers for London Roar.
