Neil Jones has announced he's in his first relationship since splitting with Katya Jones last year.

The 38 year old, who recently said he slept on the streets as a teenager before a charity saved him, took to his Instagram Stories to make the revelation during a quick Q&A session with his 224,000 followers.

One keen fan asked: "Are you still single?" To which the star responded by sharing a snap of himself on a bike with his hand held out to reveal the answer is: "Nope".

Despite going public with his relationship, Neil, who recently denied he's gay, didn't offer any further detail into his new romance.

It comes as the Strictly Come Dancing star recently opened up on the reason behind his split from his wife Katya.

The dancer and Katya, who is also a Strictly professional, announced their decision to part ways in an emotional statement in September last year.

Neil and Katya’s breakup came less than a year after Katya, 31, was photographed kissing her Strictly dance partner Seann Walsh outside a pub in London.

Months after his split from his dancer wife, Neil opened up about the reason behind his marriage breakdown.

He explained: “We found that we’d grown apart like people do, so we were like: ‘OK, let’s go our separate ways’. We are lucky that we don’t have kids.

“It had nothing to do with what happened [with Seann].

“We were moving in different directions but we are friends again now. Katya is a great girl and I’ve got nothing bad to say about her.”

Neil also revealed he is yet to begin divorce proceedings as he said: “We’re still not divorced. It’s a thing we’re trying to sort out but we haven’t started the process yet.

“A lot of the places are not working because of the coronavirus. Everything is on hold. But we’re not in any rush.”

After his wife was photographed kissing comedian Seann, 34, who later apologised alongside Katya for his actions, Neil remained tight-lipped on his feelings around the ordeal.

But, now Neil has spoken out about his reaction to his wife’s kissing scandal.

He told The Sun On Sunday: “We’re human, we all see things in completely different ways. We don’t all react the same way.

“That’s the thing with me. I’m in a good place and me and Katya get on really well now.

“For me it’s something that happened in the past. We spoke about everything back then. We had a situation but everyone was supportive, so we got through it.”
