Strictly dancer Neil Jones ‘to confront Seann Walsh over shock gay jibe’

The scandal that surrounded Seann Walsh’s time on Strictly Come Dancing is looking like it will make a return in the build-up to the final of the BBC dance show.

Professional dancer Neil Jones has not exactly seen eye-to-eye with comedian Seann after he was caught kissing his dance partner, Katya Jones, 29, who is Neil’s wife.

With that furore dying down following Seann’s exit from Strictly, it would seem that the 33-year-old comic has reignited the ill-feeling between the pair, with a cutting jibe.
