Strictly pro Katya Jones came in for a lot of love from fans earlier today after she posted a "precious" throwback family snap.

Thousands of the Russian dancer’s 135,000 Instagram followers made their approval clear about the heartwarming image showing her being hugged by her mum - with it accumulating over 2,500 likes and drawing dozens of approving comments within hours.

Fans also enjoyed noting how close the mother and her famous daughter look in the pic - and many also reckoned the photogenic pair could be siblings.

The photo, which appeared to be from Christmas due to a decorated tree in the background, may have been taken at her mum’s home because it was tagged with the location of Saint Petersburg.
