Strictly Come Dancing star Neil Jones has opened up about his new relationship, as he confirmed to his fans that he is no longer a single man.
He took to social media to confirm the happy news months after being on the receiving end of a jibe from Seann Walsh, who said: "I’m the guy who kissed a gay man’s wife.”
Neil dropped the bombshell he was enjoying a new romance when he was taking part in a Q&A with fans on Instagram.
One follower asked: "Are you still single?"
He responded: "Nope," but decided not to elaborate any further on his happy news.
Neil and his wife Katya ended their marriage in August last year, just ten months after she was kissing her Strictly partner Seann while out in London.
After news of their split broke, Neil addressed rumours about his sexuality as he insisted that there are a lot of straight male dancers.
He said: "In ballroom there’s a lot of straight guys.
"But mum was always like, ‘It’s a shame you’re not gay because we could go shopping together’.
"And I was thinking, 'whether I’m gay or not there’s no chance, you take forever'."
Katya and Neil got married back in 2013 after meeting at a dancing event in Blackpool, and soon regularly appeared on Strictly together for group dances.

However, despite Neil standing by Katya after her indiscretion with comedian Seann, the pair split the following year.
They said in a statement: "We will always love each other, just in a different way as friends.
"This will never change what a great team we make and we are really proud of everything we have achieved together.
"We wish one another every happiness and we will remain the best of friends.
"We are really looking forward to getting back to the ballroom and can't wait to keep on dancing. Lots of love from us both xx."
