Katya Jones: Strictly pro says Seann Walsh kiss ‘hell’ was ‘more talked about than Brexit’
Strictly's Katya Jones relaxes with dog Crumble after isolation
Katya Jones, 31, has opened up about the scandal that erupted around her 2018 series of Strictly Come Dancing. The professional dancer was pictured kissing her celebrity dance partner Seann Walsh while she was married to fellow Strictly star Neil Jones, 38, who she later split from in 2018.
Fans blamed the so-called Strictly “curse” for the romantic moment between the pair.
The “curse” refers to contestants ending relationships and starting romances with their co-stars during or after appearing on the programme.
Katya has now said the snog was more talked about than Brexit at the time, as she reflected on the “hellish” experience.
The star revealed: “There aren’t any regrets because that’s not how I like to lead my life.

“Of course certain things made it hell, all the attention – and I think for two weeks Brexit was forgotten!
“I’m happy to talk about it now – it doesn’t affect me, it doesn’t affect who I am.”
Katya was competing with 38-year-old professional boxer Nicola Adams for the 2020 series of Strictly.
Unfortunately, the duo were forced to quit the show after Katya tested positive for coronavirus during the third week of the live shows.
Katya and Nicola became the first same-sex pairing to compete on the show.
The dancer admitted she has now attracted some attention from female admirers following her partnership with Nicola.
Katya, who is single following her split from ex-husband Neil, said: “Well, I have been getting quite a few messages from girls now which has been nice.
“But no-one famous… why don’t they slide into my DM’s?! I am very much single….”

She added to The Sun: “Have I ever dated a girl?
“No I haven’t but maybe a woman wouldn’t want to go out with me because I’m a bossy woman!”
Elsewhere, Katya recently hit out at her ex Neil on Instagram.
The friendly exes share dog Crumble after splitting last year.
However, Katya seemed less than impressed with the dancer when she started a question and answer session with her 177,000 followers featuring Crumble.
She was seen holding the little black dog, who was sporting a pink bow in its hair.
Sharing a screenshot of her direct messages, Neil had responded to her initial post.
“Get that bo out of her hair,”(sic) he had light-heartedly urged.
“It’s a bow,” she had simply corrected him.
However, she captioned her update: “@mr_njonesofficial he hates when I dress her up! But her hair is so long! She can’t see!”
