Caroline Peaty took to Twitter and made the comments after her son and his professional dance partner Katya Jones were eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing last night. Adam Peaty also took to social media to hit out at “the people who tried to bring us down” while he was on the show and told them to “do better”.
The Olympic swimmer was sent home after the judges voted to keep Tilly Ramsay and Nikita Kuzmin following the dance-off.
After their elimination, Caroline tweeted: “Such an amazing partnership and Katya you have taught my baby boy to dance, thank you. Total fix and I’m not buying the public vote.”
She was also unhappy to see Adam land in the bottom two, writing: “What a total farce, neither Tilly nor @Adam_peaty deserve to be in the dance-off!”
One fan replied to Caroline to say that “someone had to go” and she was doing Adam a “disservice” by hitting out at the show.
They wrote: “This isn’t the Olympics, it’s an entertainment show where people vote based on what they like. Someone had to go.
“Adam’s been fantastic and achieved so much to get this far. You’re doing him a great disservice by calling it a farce and knocking the remaining contestants.”
Caroline replied: “Everyone is entitled to an opinion, I have watched this show for the first time and I have seen with my own eyes that the judging is not consistent or fair, not just with Adam either! And just so you know I am a kind person.”
A representative for Strictly Come Dancing has been contacted by Express.co.uk.
Meanwhile, Adam hit out at online trolls following his elimination as he thanked the Strictly team for his time in the series.
Taking to Instagram, he wrote: “What an experience @bbcstrictly has been. I’m so grateful for my time on this show, from the highs of performing in front of millions and the extreme challenge of learning a new routine within three days every week, it’s been incredible.
“I didn’t know how much it meant to me until I got a bit emotional after my dance-off; however, I don’t think it was the dancing that pushed me over the edge, but the two years of the constant challenge with myself combined with the energy to win the Olympics and becoming a father at the same time.
“It’s crazy to me because I thought I was ‘OK’ but I am not. We all have to wear a piece of armour to get the job done and it wasn’t until this week that I knew I could let it go.

“I’m still healing from the trials and tribulations that elite sporting athletes go through but with that, I’m also adapting and learning from life. Thank you Katya for being there every single day, you are incredible.
“I don’t have enough positive words for you and what an amazing person and dancer you are. Thank you to everyone behind the scenes, you are brilliant.
“I’m so grateful for everyone who has made this experience so amazing.”
He also praised Tilly after she and Nikita were saved by the judges following the dance-off.
He wrote: “@TillyRamsay you were incredible and I’m so glad you get to show how much of an amazing dancer you are again next week!
“For the people who tried to bring us down throughout the show, please challenge yourself to be better. The world needs much more positivity and truth.
“Time to get some rest (although my book launches this week!!!) I’ll come back the strongest version of the real me and I can’t wait to start racing again!”
