Strictly’s Neil Jones says he and wife Katya don’t pay attention to relationship speculation

Couple said to be considering renewing their wedding vows

| Updated:

Neil and Katya Jones are planning to renew their wedding vows.

The Strictly Come Dancing couple’s relationship is said to be stronger than ever, despite Katya being spotted kissing her TV dancer partner Seann Walsh last year.

He told the Daily Mail: “We don’t pay attention to what’s being said about us. We know we’re happy and that’s all that matters.

“We might renew our wedding vows but we’ve been married for only five years and I think that’s a little bit too soon.”

Neil, 36, also revealed he and Katya, 29, are eager to have children together.

He said: “I want a big family. I want about three kids. I’m one of five and my sister has five kids, so it’s going to happen — maybe not yet, but in a couple of years.”

Adding it will be “harder” for Katya when they have a child because she has a physically-demanding career, Neil made it clear he believes she will be a “great” mother.

Earlier this month, Katya said their years-long relationship “started on a lie” when they were dancing partners.

She explained: “I thought Neil was 20, 21, 22. He was 26! He was way too old for me to dance with but he dragged me into the partnership.”

But during the same podcast chat, Neil disputed Katya’s account.

He said: “No lies actually happened. I just didn’t contradict when she was talking about other dancers being really old at the age of 26.”

Speaking further, Neil said he “just went with it” since Katya never actually asked how old he was, insisting, “I look young, it was fine.”

Neil meanwhile joked he’s the “better half” of the couple and “the brains” in the relationship.
