Jayde Adams and Karen Hauer have made an early start to Strictly rehearsals on Thursday after a night on the red carpet at the Attitude Awards.

The 37-year-old comedian and 40-year-old professional dancer clutched at their cups of coffee as they walked towards the dance studios in London this morning.

They showed their commitment to making it through another week with flying colours as they prepare to perform the American Smooth on Saturday.

Wearing a bright orange trench coat and matching black turtleneck top and comfy joggers, the Strictly contestant brushed her blonde locks back to a low bun.

She went makeup-free on the wet London morning, carrying a black backpack and M&S shopping bag to keep the pair fuelled throughout their tough training sessions.

Dance partner Karen cut a similarly casual figure in her stone-coloured hooded jumper and black puffer jacket.

Also carrying an M&S shopping bag, Karen put her pins in a pair of black sports leggings and wore a pair of black platformed leather boots.

They enjoyed some time away from the studio last night as they posed on the red carpet together for the Attitude Awards held at The Roundhouse in Chalk Farm, north London.

The pair commanded attention in their striking patterned outfits, with actress and writer Jayde donning a black lace jumpsuit with a white statement belt and underlay top.

She brought the drama with her puffed shoulder garment which flowed out into a train behind her.

The actress and writer’s makeup look was just as dramatic, finishing her look off with a black smokey eye look and bold red lip colour.

Karen wore a similarly striking outfit, wearing a leopard print mini dress which had black frills down each arm.

She wore a bright green Jacquemus miniature handbag with matching pointed court heels, and matched her makeup with co-star Jayde.

The 40-year-old dancer wore a red lip, black smokey eye and wore her signature brunette curls loose across her face.

Jayde on the other hand slicked back her hair to showcase her distinguished makeup look.

The pair are dancing the American Smooth to Bette Midler’s Wind Beneath My Wings on Week Four of the Strictly competition.

Last week they came seventh place on the leaderboard with their body-positive performance of What A Feeling from Flashdance.

The comedian, who is partnered with Karen Hauer, in one of two same-sex couples this year, was dubbed an ‘inspiration’ by fans who were brought to tears.

Sporting black leotards and matching black boots, Jayde had explained during a VT that ‘dancers come in all different shapes and sizes’ and she wanted to show this.

She said: ‘So this week for me is all about showing that dancers come in all different shapes and sizes.

‘You don’t have to look a certain way in order to make people feel happy. It’s really lovely to get this body out on camera. Two woman with very different physiques dancing together and nailing it.’

Karen added: ‘We have to celebrates all of our bodies.’

Judge Motsi Mabuse thought the routine was ‘beautiful’ and said it was ‘so great to show that dancing is for everyone’ – with the pair scoring 29 out of 40 points.
