Neil Jones

Strictly Come Dancing fans were stunned to see Alex Scott and Neil Jones leave the show last night, with many claiming it was a fix.

The couple just missed out on a place in the semi-finals but they’re holding their heads up high following last night’s elimination.

Professional dancer Neil penned the sweetest tribute to his partner Alex after the results show.

The dancer couldn’t help but gush about his partner, who he has definitely grown close to over the past few months.

Neil wrote, “Joyful joyful was the perfect song to end our @bbcstrictly journey together because from the first moment we started together that’s how you have made me feel.”

“From day 1 I have taken my time to get to know you @alexscott2 MBE as I really wanted to make sure that you enjoyed every moment. All I can say is that the nation has seen the real you. I’ve said it a million times that you have made me proud and you have made me smile.

“Of course I was there to teach you how to dance but you taught me so much more and the biggest lesson I learnt was to always be myself and never change,” he continued.

“You have warmed the hearts and inspired so many people around the country on a daily basis because you always worked hard and I never heard you complain plus you did all of this with a smile on your face.

“I will walk away from all of this with my head held high knowing that we did everything we could do and without a single regret and loving every moment. I really want to thank everyone that has supported us both with your messages, posts, votes and just spreading the positivity of #teamred” Neil added.

The dancer joked that there’s so much he could say about Alex that he could write a book, “I’m just sad I’m not teaching you a new dance in the morning unless we could just dance together for fun and giggles.


They were the biggest scandal of this years Strictly Come Dancing. 

Pro dancer Katya Jones and comedian Seann Walshe were photographed drunkenly kissing while they were both in relationships and it caused massive outrage. 

And now Katya is back in Seann's arms for the show's finale this weekend and things are a bit awkward especially after Seann made a dig at Katya's husband Neil in his stand-up.

 Ahead of this weekend series finale, the group have reunited in a cosy snap.

Showing the group in rehearsals, it's captioned, ''Look who’s back! Practicing an epic group dance for Saturday. Let the countdown to the #Strictly final begin!''

Seann and Katya look happy in the picture, posing side by side – but nowhere near her husband Neil, who is beside Katie Piper. 

Seann had spoken about Neil in a stand-up gig where he called him ''gay''.

Just before the Strictly reunion, Seann had been talking about the whole scandal in a comedy routine.

He said, ''Before the show, the newspapers were complaining they didn't know who I was. You know who I am now, [explicit]. I’m the guy who kissed a gay man’s wife."

He added, ''Please don’t report that. I’m only joking. I’m just here trying to make you laugh."

The Strictly finale takes place this Saturday on BBC One at 6:30pm. 


It's the dramz  that just keeps on giving.

Comedian Seann Walshe might have been booted off Strictly Come Dancing a few weeks ago not long after he was pictured kissing married pro dancer partner, Katya Jones.

However, now it seems that the pair are to hit the dance floor together again, at the show's grand finale.

The news has come as quite a blow to Katya's husband Neil, who is also a pro dancer.

Poor aul Neil. 

Reportedly, Neil ''will be gutted as when Seann was voted off the show, he was glad to see the back of him.''

The general atmosphere on the show has been happier since the 32-year-old's departure and ''things are back on track in his marriage – so he’ll be gutted when Seann is back on set.''

Seann and Katya's drunken kiss was blamed on too much booze and the Russian dancer made a statement after it hit the media, claiming that it in no way reflected her marriage to Neil.

A Strictly spokesperson has said that, "Every year all of our celebrities are invited back for the grand final at the end of the series. This year is no different and we look forward to reuniting them all once more.”

Meanwhile, Seann's former girlfriend, actor Rebecca Humphries, has spoken out about how she has been rebuilding her life after Seann's cheating was exposed. 

She revealed on Instagram that she has penned a piece for Vogue Journal entitled, Rebecca Humphries On How Kindness Has Been Revamped In 2018.

She wrote, “Tales and accounts which have since been splashed throughout the entrance pages by full strangers about essentially the most private, deeply heartfelt side of my life.”

She continued, “However maybe the largest shock (no imply feat), has been of the 1000’s of people that recognised the Marvel Girl behind that assertion was on the similar time standing within the ruins of a shattered actuality – and their rush to supply humour, perspective and life-force to assist rebuild it.''

Strictly continues this Saturday on BBC One at 6:45pm. 


Love Island host Caroline Flack is returning to Strictly Come Dancing.

And the English presenter is going to have a special partner this year.

The Strictly star dazzled audiences with her winning performance in 2014 and it appears she has been dying to return to the show ever since.

According to The Sun, the TV presenter will make her debut on the Christmas Day special of the dance show.

She will be paired with Neil Jones as his first ever celebrity partner.

The professional dancer is over the moon at the opportunity to dance with Caroline and cannot wait for her big return.

Neil and his wife Katya Jones have made tabloid headlines since the Strictly cheating scandal news.

Katya was photographed kissing her dancing partner Seann Walsh after a night out.

Neil has yet to comment on the scandal and instead remains focused on his role on the show.

“Caroline jumped at the chance” of returning to the BBC show, a source told The Sun.

“She expected to be paired up with pro dancer Pasha Kovalev again, but Strictly bosses were inundated with requests for Neil to finally get a celebrity dance partner.

“It’s their way of showing Neil they support him and are ­grateful for the dignified way he handled the situation with Seann and Katya.”

We can’t wait for the Christmas Day special this year and have high expectations for the dynamic dancers.

They are going to make quite the pair on the dance floor.


The latest series of Strictly Come Dancing is mere weeks away and we are seriously excited.

The professional dancers have been sharing pictures and videos on social media of the crew getting back to business for another season of dancing and it has now been revealed that Neil Jones, hubby of pro dancer Katya, is officially joining the gang.

Neil joined the show alongside Katya as a choreographer and group dancer two years ago. 

A TV insider said he was a shoe-in as ''he has a wicked personality. Producers are lining him up for a star role,'' according to The Sun.

Neil will step into the dancing shoes of departed Strictly pro Brendan Cole, who was let go from the hit BBC show earlier this year.

His replacement was confirmed by the BBC1 show’s voiceover artist Alan Dedicoat, who said, “Neil Jones is doing it this year.''

“He’s always been on the show but not coupled with someone, so it’ll be interesting to see how he does.”

Russian Latin champion Katya has been a member of the official pro-dancer line-up since she joined in 2016, stealing the show with politician Ed Balls and going on to nab the glitter ball trophy with actor Joe McFadden last year.

A TV source said: “Neil has been a choreographer on the show since Katya joined but has always been keen to be partnered with one of the celebrities.''

It seems that Neil has quite a fan-base, with people taking to social media to demand he gets a partner this year.

One said, ''please @bbcstrictly  give Neil Jones a partner this year! #RedHeadsDoItBetter'', while another wrote, ''the media/public: Who will replace Brendan Cole now that he's no longer on Strictly?! Neil Jones: *looks into the camera like he's on The Office*.''

It seems like you have got your wish, folks.

Best of luck Neil, we're rooting for ya!
