Strictly star Tony Adams set to ‘infuriate’ fans with his outfit on this weekend’s show


STRICTLY Come Dancing star Tony Adams is likely to “infuriate” Arsenal fans this weekend – and it’s all because of his outfit.

The former footballer will transform into a red devil, which is the mascot of rivals Manchester United.

Tony, 56, was Arsenal’s captain and played centre-back for 19 years with a total of 672 appearances.

Despite big-money offers to go to Manchester United, Tony stayed loyal to his team.

But on Saturday night, as he performs in Strictly’s Halloween week, he’ll be dressed as a devil – Man U’s crest.

Tony’s been rehearsing a quickstep all week, which he’ll perform to The Devil Went Down to Georgia by The Charlie Daniels Band. 

He’s partnered up with Katya Jones who he had a backstage bust-up with two weeks ago.

The ex-footballer suffered a crisis of confidence during a dress rehearsal – and was swiftly given a dressing down by Katya.

Admitting to It Takes Two host Rylan Clark what happened, Tony admitted: “I was full of fear beforehand. We had a team talk.

“She [Katya] came into my dressing room after our dress rehearsal and told me a few home truths about me holding back.

“I think she admits it could have gone either way. I could have thrown my toys out of the pram and gone home.

“But I fought back the fear and just kind of went for it.”

Katya replied: “What you said is right, I took a risk.

“It could have fallen apart or it could have given him that extra fire in his belly.

“I took a risk because I thought that’s what he needs right now. It definitely did pay off.”
