STRICTLY Come Dancing’s Neil Jones looked happier than ever as he arrived at rehearsals without his wedding ring – but Katya still has hers firmly on.
The dancing pair announced their split on Sunday after six years of marriage – and both initially removed their rings.
But while 37-year-old Neil has kept his off, 29-year-old Katya was spotted screaming in a car with hers back on yesterday.
Earlier today, Neil couldn’t stop beaming as he stepped out of a car.
The ginger-haired hunk wore black tracksuit bottoms and a red T-Shirt as he prepared for another day of gruelling rehearsals, which kicked off earlier this week.
Meanwhile, Katya looked strained as she lagged a bag into the building, dressed in lime green shorts and a bright pink top.
Interestingly, the brunette beauty’s sparkling diamond remains on her ring finger.
It is the same ring that fans are used to seeing, with it even on show during the It Takes Two appearance where she apologised for snogging dance partner Seann Walsh.
At the weekend, Neil and Katya announced their break-up after 11 years together in a joint Instagram post.
The pair appeared strained and distant in the final picture taken before the announcement – which comes 10 months after Katya was caught kissing her 2018 celebrity partner.
Neil initially stood by his wife, but called time on the romance ahead of the launch of this year’s series of the BBC One dance show.
Just hours after announcing their split, The Sun Online revealed that Katya will get another star partner this year.
It was also reported that Neil is set to get a celebrity partner for the first time since he joined the BBC One dance show in 2016.
He steps into the limelight at the expense of show favourite Gorka Marquez, 28.
Neil got the nod over Gorka because the Spanish star is not tall enough for many of this year’s female celebrities.
