Neil and Katya Jones to retell love story in show – as Seann Walsh unveils awkward tour name

Neil and Katya Jones are set to retell their love story in a new dance show debuting at Saddler’s Wells – just after Seann Walsh appeared to name his tour after the infamous Strictly kiss scandal.

Katya and Seann, who were paired together on the show, became embroiled in controversy after they were pictured having a drunken snog in the street.

But it looks like Katya and Neil are trying to get back on track despite not bagging a spot on the Strictly tour.

The pair took to Twitter to make their big announcement – that they would be taking part in ‘A Dancer’s Dream’ together in a dance show that appears to echo their own romance.

The synopsis reveals that the show, directed and choreographed by Neil, "tells the story of a boy from Britain and a girl from Russia who met, fell in love and overcame the odds to become dance stars".

The show will also feature a company of dancers and Latin and ballroom choreography.

Seeming to address ‘kissgate’, it ends: "It also depicts a complicated modern love story, exploring how the path of love doesn’t always run smoothly."

Awkwardly, this comes just hours after Seann revealed the name of his new tour, which seems to hint at the scandal too.

Tweeting the poster for the tour, called ‘After this one I’m going home’, he wrote: "My new dance show."

This divided Twitter users, with one branding it "pathetic".

But Seann replied: "One of my favourite Blink 182 songs."
