Neil also mentioned that he was feeling the ‘best he had in years’, when another fan asked him how he was doing on Saturday.

Talking about their break-up for the first time, the Strictly professional dancer, 38, also discussed the Seann Walsh cheating scandal.  

Neil’s marriage hit the headlines in October 2018 when Katya, 31, was caught kissing comedian Seann, 34, but insists the betrayal had ‘nothing to do’ with the demise of their relationship. 

Neil told The Sun: ‘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.’

Explaining their decision to split, Neil admitted that they had ‘found that they’d grown apart’ before acknowledging they were ‘lucky’ to not have kids. 

The dancer insisted: ‘It had nothing to do with what happened [with Seann].’ 

For the first time since their split, Neil touched on the Seann Walsh kiss scandal which pushed his marriage to Katya into the limelight.

He said: ‘For me it’s something that happened in the past. We spoke about everything back then,’ before confirming that he and his ex are still friends.

Seann and Katya faced a huge backlash after pictures surfaced of the pair locking lips on their booze-fuelled night out nearly two years ago.

At the time, the comedian was dating Rebecca Humphries and she was still happily married to now-estranged husband Neil Jones.

Shortly after the scandal, Seann issued an apology in which he blamed his actions on alcohol, branding it a ‘one-off’ and a ‘mistake’.

The dance expert echoed the sentiments, claiming she was sorry for the ‘hurt’ she had caused by her actions, but insisted her marriage to Neil was ‘absolutely fine’.

After the kiss came to light, Seann was publicly dumped by his girlfriend of five years Rebecca, and Katya split from her husband of six years.

Following the separation Neil also shut down rumours which claimed he’s gay.

In a new interview, he insisted he’s straight but joked his mother wished he was gay so they could ‘go shopping together’.

The choreographer spoke out 18 months after he was labelled as a homosexual by his love rival Seann Walsh, who went behind his back and kissed his now-estranged wife Katya during their stint on the BBC competition series.

During a stand-up performance in Kennington in 2018, comedian Seann, was reported to have said: ‘You know who I am now motherf****r, I’m the guy who kissed a gay man’s wife.’

The funnyman quickly urged the audience to ‘not report that’ and insisted he was only joking.

Moving on from the jibe, dance expert Neil told The Sun: ‘In ballroom there’s a lot of straight guys. But mum was always like, “It’s a shame you’re not gay because we could go shopping together”.

‘And I was thinking, “whether I’m gay or not there’s no chance, you take forever”.’
