Strictly’s Neil Jones ‘mocks’ love rival Seann Walsh on It Takes Two

He’s maintained a dignified silence since his wife Katya Jones was spotted passionately kissing her Strictly dance partner Seann Walsh on a boozy night out. 

But Neil Jones appeared to finally have his say on ‘Kissgate’ when he apparently mocked comedian Seann by dressing up like him in a hilarious It Takes Two segment on Tuesday.

The professional dancer, 35, bore more than a passing resemblance to Seann, 32, with his long, curly wig and thick stubble as he pretended to be ‘Neil de Jaunes’, a dancer who loves bragging about his achievements.

Neil, dressed in a Seventies-inspired outfit, kicked off the skit by declaring: ‘Oh hello! I didn’t see you there. Just polishing my world championship trophy – well, one of them.’

He continued self-importantly: ‘My name is Neil de Jaunes, 15 times world Latin dance champion. Of course – you already knew that.’

He went on to give a dance tutorial teaching viewers how to master the waltz.  

‘I’ll be teaching you dance steps from the comfort of my own home. I’m sure yours is not as grand as mine, but that shouldn’t stop you giving it a try,’ he said cheekily. 

Who's that? The professional dancer, 35, bore more than a passing resemblance to Seann, 32, with his long, curly wig and thick stubble as he pretended to be Neil de Jaunes, a dancer who loves bragging about his achievements

The dancer’s skit sent viewers into meltdown, with many wondering if he was taking a direct swipe at Seann.

‘Did Neil Jones look like Seann Walsh in his segment on It Takes Two?’ one viewer asked.

‘F**king hell. Neil dressing up as Seannnnn and making him look like a poser,’ another user added. ‘What the hell was that Neil Jones segment!’ a third viewer wrote.

Another viewer compared him to the 2004 comedy starring Jon Heder, writing: ‘Neil looks like a creepy Napoleon Dynamite. I have no clue what is going on.’

‘Neil has been telling pals backstage that it’s only now that Seann has gone he can start to rebuild and recover.’

‘He likened having him around to when you ‘keep taking the top off a scab so it wouldn’t heal’ because seeing Seann just constantly reminded him of the kiss.’
