Why did Tony quit Strictly with Russian dancer Katya Jones?

While Katya Jones is praising Adams for his brave decision to quit ahead of his dance face-off against Tyler West and Dianne Buswell, fans are raising eyebrows regarding the injury. Meanwhile, the BBC refused to explain what the injury was or how it occurred. Sources said,

Tony Adams sensationally quit Strictly Come Dancing on Sunday evening, pulling out of the contest with an apparent hamstring injury. 

Just a week after Tony had a heated row with dancer Katya Jones, he quit on week eight with the BBC  source confirming,

“After finding out he would be facing the dance off, Tony had a chat with producers and stated that both he and the physio were concerned that dancing the jive again in the dance off could cause further injury and he had therefore decided he would instead withdraw from the competition.”

A source at the studio had further clarified how Adams looked ‘upset’ after the Saturday night show ended. They added,

“Something was wrong, something was going on. He was struggling to walk and was holding his leg.”

Judges Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Anton Du Beke, and Head Judge, Shirley Ballas, and the voting public were shocked after the exit of Adams.
