Strictly Come Dancings Neil Jones posted a gushing Instagram throwback video recalling how he first met his wife Katya Jones in Blackpool.

The married professional dancers hit a bump in the road last month when Katya was photographed kissing her partner Seann Walsh outside a London pub, but it looks like the pair might have put the past behind them.

Neil shared a clip of him and Katya jiving around the iconic ballroom as crowds cheered, captioning the post: Tonight is the last @bbcstrictly show before Blackpool and I know everyone wants to get there but who do you want to make it?

For me Blackpool is a very emotional place because its where I first met @mrs_katjones and we went on to win 13 Blackpool titles together over 10 years.

The video, which has so far received over 40,138 views, captured the attention of a number of past Strictly contestants, with Gemma Atkinson commenting: Thats almost as good as my Blackpool American Smooth.


Holby Citys Joe McFadden added: I recognise some of those steps from our jive. You do them better than me obvs.

However, despite the interest from his A-list following Neil didnt get a comment or a like from his wife of five years, Katya.

Katya and her dance partner Seann were voted off the Beeb competition two weekends ago after failing to impress the judges with their Viennese waltz, making them the fifth couple to leave.

At the time, Seann said: When you watch it and hear people at the end say this has been the best experience in my life…you dont really believe, but this has been without a doubt the best experience of my life.

Probably bar the last few weeks. But generally speaking, from the beginning it really was. I cant believe it, its been amazing.

He then turned to Katya, adding the experience had been a dream come true and thats because of you.

Strictly Come Dancing airs tonight at 7pm on BBC One.
