Strictly's Neil Jones confirms new relationship one year after split from Katya

Strictly Come Dancing’s Neil Jones confirmed he’s in a new relationship, a year after his split from Katya Jones.

The former couple announced their marriage was over in a joint statement, on August 18, 2019.

And the professional dancer has revealed he has moved on, while taking part in a Q&A session on Instagram.

One inquisitive follower asked the 38-year-old: ‘Are you still single?’

To which he simply replied: ‘Nope’.

While he didn’t lift the lid on his new romance, the BBC star did share a snap as he enjoyed a bike ride, appearing to hold his hand out to someone just off camera.

Neil and Katya revealed their split on social media last year, calling time on their 11-year relationship.

‘As our fans and loyal supporters you are really important to us and so we wanted to let you know some news,’ their statement read. 

‘After 11 years, we have made the mutual decision to separate. We will always love each other, just in a different way as friends.

‘This will never change what a great team we make and we are really proud of everything we have achieved together.

‘Our shared love of dance means we will keep working and dancing together as well as exploring individual projects. No matter what we do we will always support and respect each other.

‘We wish one another every happiness and we will remain the best of friends. We are really looking forward to getting back to the ballroom and can’t wait to keep on dancing.’

They started dating back in 2008, and tied the knot in a lavish wedding five years later.

The couple hit a rough patch back in 2018, after Katya was pictured passionately kissing Strictly dance partner Seann Walsh on a night out.

She apologised for her actions on social media, insisting her actions were not a reflection of their marriage.

At the time, they appeared to work through the drama and put on a united front over the next 10 months, before going their separate ways.
