STRICTLY Come Dancing's Katya Jones told The Sun that women have been "sliding into her DMs" following her same-sex pairing with Nicola Adams.
The 31-year-old beauty made history on the BBC One dance show this series after she and the boxer were partnered together.
Unfortunately, their Strictly journey came to a premature end as the pair were forced to bow out of the competition when Katya tested positive for coronavirus.
But she is still enjoying the legacy of being a new lesbian pin-up after dancing with a woman on one of the UK's biggest TV shows.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Katya shared: "I have been getting quite a few messages from girls, which is nice – but no-one famous.
"Why don't they [famous women] slide into my DM's?! I am very much single!"
Katya split from fellow Strictly pro Neil Jones 15 months ago and went on to reveal that she has never dated a woman before – and she thinks she'd be "too bossy" for a same-sex romance.
The dancer told us: "Have I ever dated a girl? No I haven’t, but maybe a woman wouldn’t want to go out with me because I’m a bossy woman!"
She continued: "All the fuss about Nicola and I dancing together was, for me, quite strange because in the ballroom world, it’s such a normal thing.
"You go to any dance school and there are mainly girl-girl partnerships, even in the competitions – often because there aren’t enough boys.
"For us it was totally normal, but to do this on prime time TV, I understand it was really exciting."
Katya and Nicola had no choice but to quit Strictly after the former's positive coronavirus test, which came in spite of her not displaying any symptoms.
A two week isolation spell meant they would be forced to miss two live shows, and competition rules wouldn't allow two consecutive byes.
However, given their popularity, the pair will be returning for a special one-off performance next week – and Katya promised that it will be their raunchiest routine ever.
"I am so happy we were able to do it – we needed closure," she smiled.
"We have spiced it up this week. It’s nice because we aren't being judged, so I've had the freedom to do what we want and I have thrown everything at it this week…. bar the kitchen sink!
"There are lots of lifts and tricks, and there’s a bit more chemistry in there; it's very different to anything we've done in the competition before and I can’t wait to show a different side to people."
Nicola previously described Katya as "hot" – but she is happily loved up with influencer girlfriend Ella Baig, who she has been with for two years.
