Neil Jones has broken his silence after his wife Katya was pictured kissing her co-star and Strictly Come Dancing partner Seann Walsh “like in a teenager”, in pictures obtained by The Sun.
Katya’s husband Neil, who also works on the show as a professional dancer, took to Instagram after reports that his wife, 29, and comedian Seann, 32, were embracing on a night out in London.
Sharing a video of their Paso Doble on Saturday to hit film the Matrix during the BBC show’s movie week theme, Neil said he was “proud” of his wife of five years in a social media post shared on Sunday morning.

“Wow last nights @bbcstrictly week was really epic and I’m really proud of @mrs_katjones and @seannwalsh Paso Doble,” he wrote.
“Great shapes and of course like always the choreography was on point. Which dance did you like last night?”
Katya, 29, who is married to fellow Strictly star Neil Jones, and Seann, 32, who has been in a relationship with actress Rebecca Humphries for five years, were seen embracing outside a pub in the capital.
The pair have been partnered together on this year’s show and according to onlookers both comedian Seann and professional dancer Katya were “snogging like a pair of teenagers” and “didn’t seem to care who might see them”, sources told The Sun.
In the photos, Katya is seen performing a number of dance moves along the pavement before sharing a kiss with Seann. Witnesses told the publication that the pair left the Duke of York in Marylebone in Central London at around midnight on Wednesday.
Russian-born Katya has been married to Neil Jones since 2013 after meeting in 2008. The British dancer works as a professional on the BBC show, but isn’t partnered up in celebrity and regularly takes part in the group dances.
This week the couple celebrated their five year anniversary, with Katya sharing a throwback photo of herself and her husband during a holiday to Cuba.
Meanwhile Seann has been in a relationship with actress Rebecca Humphries for several years. Rebecca has starred in several onscreen and theatre productions.
On Saturday’s show Rebecca was seen in the audience of Elstree studios as she cheered on her partner as he performed a Paso Doble.
