In a recent EcoReporter segment, we focus on Strictly Come Dancing star Katya Jones breaking her silence on her ex-husband Neil Jones and his partner Chyna Mills welcoming their first baby. Neil, who is also a part of the popular dance show, announced the arrival of their child on October 4, sharing their joy with HELLO! magazine. The new parents expressed their happiness and shared a picture of their newborn’s tiny feet on their Instagram pages.
Many friends and fans congratulated Neil and Chyna on their baby news, including Katya, who was married to Neil for six years. Katya took it a step further by re-sharing the couple’s post on her Instagram Story and adding a heartfelt message of congratulations. She had previously shown her support for the couple when they announced their pregnancy and engagement in April.
Neil and Katya were together for 11 years and married for six before their split in 2019. The couple faced national headlines in 2018 when Katya was pictured kissing her dance partner, comedian Seann Walsh, despite both of them having partners at the time. However, they remained together following the scandal and stated that it was not the cause of their separation. In a joint statement, they expressed their love and respect for each other and their commitment to continue working and dancing together.
While Neil celebrates the arrival of his first child, Katya has been back in the training room for Strictly Come Dancing, preparing for her performance with EastEnders star Nigel Harman. In their first week on the dancefloor, the pair impressed the judges and topped the leaderboard with a dramatic pasodoble. However, they faced criticism in their second performance, with Shirley Ballas noting technical errors. Despite this, Craig Revel Horwood praised the couple and defended their performance.
Katya has shared on her Instagram Story that Nigel is a perfect student, and she has reduced her workload for the show. The segment concludes by highlighting the ongoing journey of Katya and Nigel in the competition and their determination to succeed.
Overall, this EcoReporter segment provides an update on the personal and professional lives of Katya Jones and Neil Jones, while also highlighting their commitment to their respective careers and their continued friendship.
