Adam Peaty kicked off rehearsals for the next week of Strictly Come Dancing with his professional dance partner Katya Jones on Monday morning.
The pair were engulfed in drama over the weekend after viewers thought the Olympian "almost kissed" Katya on Saturday night's episode despite having a girlfriend.
And after vowing not to be "overcome by gossip", the 26 year old took to his Instagram Stories to reveal he was back in the studio to train for his next routine.
"So it's Monday morning, and a new dance – a new, hard Monday," Adam informed his followers while standing in an empty rehearsal room with music blaring in the background.
The athlete continued: "Mondays are hard, but we're going to get there. We're looking forward to this dance.
"Let's have it," Adam said enthusiastically before adding: "Energy, energy, energy!"
In another clip shared shortly after, Adam said: "Also, I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted, everyone who got us through.
"It's just going to be hopefully another incredible dance. I don't know anything about the choreography on this one but let's hope it's good."
His positive attitude for the week ahead comes after he warned trolls on social media after they claimed he "nearly kissed" Katya during their Argentine Tango on Strictly.
Adam addressed the comments, writing on Twitter: "My favourite dance so far.
"Thank you to everyone who has sent supporting messages! I loved it."
He then continued: "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."
At the end of the dance, the pair had their chins touching and lips very close to one another.
The pair continued the pose, so they didn't break the magic of the performance as the audience cheered.
Their chins remained touching as Adam lifted Katya from the pose, as she was stretched out underneath him.
Katya can be seen placing her hand at the top of Adam's head as the pair keep their faces close. They then break the pose to walk over and hear the judge's critiques.
Despite viewers' comments, Adam's girlfriend Eiri Munro has appeared to have laughed off fans theories in a TikTok video.
