Katya and Neil Jones have spoken out about her Strictly Come Dancing cheating scandal, as the dancer said that her “first thought was for Neil.”
The professional dancer was caught kissing her Strictly partner, Seann Walsh last year and while the comedian split from his girlfriend shortly after the scandal, Katya and her husband have remained together.
Speaking out about the kiss to Hello! Magazine, the 29-year-old said: “We knew we just had to sort it out ourselves. It was quite shocking to be suddenly so exposed and everyone has an opinion on it but we just wanted to focus on us. My first thought was for Neil.”
Neil seems to have forgiven his wife for kissing the comedian and said: “I think, for me, I can accept people make mistakes. My mum always said: ‘People make mistakes in their lives. Don’t react, try to understand’. So that is how it always is for me.”
“I look at everything as a massive learning process. But actually drop by drop, people typing horrible and unkind things about you, does affect you. The hate I felt made me very sad,” Katya added.
“Neil told me, ‘Stop reading, stop looking’. I knew I had to focus on what I do best, my dancing, my choreography, my job to the best of my ability.”
