The professional dancer donned a long grey jacket and matching cap with blue tracksuit bottoms, blue jumper and white trainers as she made her way to the train station.

Katya could be seen looking down at her phone as she walked, with a down-trodden expression.

The star was forced to quit Strictly just a week before the show visits Blackpool, due to a shock injury sustained by her dance partner Tony.

Fifty-six-year-old Tony decided on his departure prior to his dance off with Tyler West and Dianne Buswell, which was then announced by Strictly host, Tess Daly.

Tess explained: “Due to an injury sustained on Saturday night, Tony is unable to take part in the dance-off and has decided to withdraw from the competition.

“This means there will be no dance-off tonight and Tyler and Dianne are through to Blackpool.”

Tony endured a hamstring injury on Saturday’s show, where he performed a jive to Land Of 1,000 Dances by Wilson Pickett.

The star took to social media to explain his situation, stating:

“There comes a point when you can no longer ignore medical advice, and very sadly my point came tonight.

“Sorry I couldn’t dance off against my friend @TylerWestt, but thank you thank you to ALL @bbcstrictly who made this into an unbelievable joyful, tough and exhilarating 8 weeks.”

He went on to gush about his dance partner, writing: “I will miss you all.

“And, well I have no words for @Mrs_katjones.

“She is my absolute rock, queen, nemesis, HERO. I love her to bits. Keep dancing. Tomorrow I’ll be getting the leaf blower out and back to normality. With sequins.”
