Strictly’s Katya Jones hits back at claims she’s been axed from line-up

The Strictly Come Dancing drama rages on.

The BBC show might not even be on TV at the moment but there is no shortage of controversy surrounding it.

Katya Jones, the pro dancer at the centre of the Seann Walsh scandal in the 2018 series, is now reportedly cut from the main line-up.

The 29-year-old dancer, who is married to fellow Strictly pro Neil Jones, was pictured looking downcast as she walked her dog after the news broke. 

She appeared to slam the reports of her axing with a statement t-shirt that read, ''You only know my name, not my story''.

It was reported that Katya had been offered reduced role by BBC bosses in the wake of last series' controversy.

While she remains as part of the line-up it is uncertain if she will get a celebrity partner this year.

This news brings about doubts about fellow pro dance Kevin Clifton's part in the show.

He has been at the centre of his own media storm since his relationship with his celebrity partner, Stacey Dooley, was announced.

However, a BBC spokesperson has insisted Katya won't be treated any differently to Kevin. 

The said, ''We wouldn't be treating her any differently to how we treated Kevin. It's not like he is guaranteed a celebrity partner this year.''

It looks like we'll have to watch this space and see the drama unfold – which we're not complaining about at all…
