Adam was also in there somewhere – giving George a cuddle after he had fallen asleep.

He captioned the images: “Family time [black heart emoji].”

How did fans react to Adam’s snaps?

It didn’t take long for Adam’s fans to get in touch to swoon at the photos, including some of his Strictly pals.

Strictly fave Aljaž Škorjanec simply left a blue heart emoji, while Nadiya Bychkova left a red heart emoji.

Another fan wrote: “Family time = best time.”

A second said: “So cute [hearts-for-eyes emoji].”

Finally, a third commented: “Family before a Strictly dancer!!!!”

Why were Adam and Katya criticised last week?

Adam’s precious time with his family contrasted with the fire and brimstone he’s bringing to the Strictly ballroom.

In last weekend’s show, Adam and pro dance partner Katya Jones once again sizzled as they danced the Samba.

However, their routine – which came a week after their now infamous ‘almost kiss’ moment – divided fans.

Showcasing his incredible hip movements – and a thrust or two thrown in for good measure – judge Motsi Mabuse drooled: “I wouldn’t have wanted to miss those hips ever in my life.”

But one viewer disagreed and said: “Adam Peaty should be reminded that it’s a family show.”
