Strictly’s Neil and Katya Jones turn love story into show despite snog-gate

Neil and Katya Jones have turned their love story into a stage show – but haven't included the snog-gate cheating scandal they were caught in last year.

The married Strictly Come Dancing stars appeared on This Morning today to talk about their self-penned stage show.

Their time on Strictly last series caused a lot of controversy.

Katya was caught snogging her celebrity partner, comedian Seann Walsh, who had a girlfriend at the time.

Photographs emerged of the pair all over each other after leaving a London pub.

Seann's girlfriend dumped him in a scathing public statement, but Katya and Neil remained together.

Seann and Katya survived another few weeks on the show before being sent home, despite the cheating scandal leaving some fans convinced they'd get the boot immediately.

As Neil and Katya excitedly told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield that the story of how they met and fell in love would be acted out on stage, Phil couldn't resist asking the question we were all wondering.

Hinting at the extra-martial kiss, Phil said they couldn't just include the peaks and ignore the troughs in their story.

He asked them: "Will that moment be reflected?"

"No," Neil quickly jumped in to say.

And Katya explained the timeline of the story ends before the scandal.

However, the show will include their wedding, with Katya announcing she'll be wearing her actual wedding dress after trying it on to discover it still fits.

The couple said they'd moved on from the scandal.

Katya said: "I wonder what's going to drag on longer. This or the Brexit ?"

And Neil added: "We've moved on, and really the show is a celebration about the time we've had together."

They've been together 11 years this month.

The couple will both return to Strictly Come Dancing this year, and Neil is hoping to land a celebrity partner for the first time.

* This Morning airs weekdays from 10.30am on ITV
