Strictly's Neil Jones ignores wife Katya Jones' cheating scandal

He's brushed it off

It's fair to say Strictly's Neil Jones is most certainly not acting like a man scorned - or indeed bothered - following the very public scandal surrounding his wife Katya's kiss with her dance partner Seann Walsh.

Katya and Seann both apologised for making a mistake after The Sun on Sunday published pictures of them kissing in the street earlier this month.

Taking to Instagram on Saturday, Neil seemed to ignore the drama surrouding his wife to post a cheery birthday greeting to fellow Strictly dancer Kevin Clifton.

Writing alongside the snap of the tangoing twosome, Neil gushed over how long the pair had known each other - and said that Kevin was now part of an 'elite club'.

"Happy birthday Kevin Clifton," he wrote. "I can't believe we've known each other for over 20 years. Welcome to the CLUB 36 it's an elite club but you will love it."

He also took to his Instagram stories to re-post a photo of himself and Katya at a photoshoot, hinting things are fine between the couple.

While numerous column inches have been devoted to the pictures of Katya and Seann sharing a post-pub snog, and Seann's girlfriend having seemingly very publicly dumped him via social media, Neil has kept resolutely silent on the matter.

However, he was pictured earlier this week wearing his wedding ring as he walked his dog in London.

Katya, meanwhile, has insisted she and her husband are 'fine' after snog-gate.

She told Zoe Ball on It Take's Two last week that while she "can't apologise enough to everyone who it hurt and involved" the main thing for her was that she and Neil were fine.

She said: "Obviously I apologise, and I can't apologise enough to everyone who it hurt and involved. But, the main thing for me is that me and Neil are absolutely fine and that's what matters to me the most right now.

"And focusing on my job and doing it as professionally I can."

Russian-born Katya married Neil in 2013, after initially meeting at an international dance competition in Blackpool.

They became dance partners before romance blossomed, with Katya telling OK! Magazine earlier this year she was the first to drop the L-word during a stroll in Holland.

Meanwhile, Katya was joined on It Takes Two by Seann, who apologised for the "hurt" he had caused with his actions.

Seann said: "I think that, obviously I'm sorry for the hurt that I've caused. We were getting on well, we were having fun. We had a couple of drinks and we made a huge mistake and I regret it deeply."

After the pictures were published, Seann's girlfriend Rebecca Humphries confirmed their split in a lengthy statement posted on social media, in which she claimed Seann called her a "psycho" after she speculated his behaviour was suspicious.

Seann and Katya will dance the Charleston on Saturday night's Strictly.
