KATYA Jones left home without her husband Neil to head to Strictly Come Dancing rehearsals this morning.
The pro dancer, 29, was dressed down in leggings and a pink sweatshirt as she made her own way to the Strictly studios to practise her moves with partner Seann Walsh, who she was caught snogging last week.
Neil is also a professional dancer on the BBC ballroom series. He’s one of three dancers on the programme to not have a partner, but has aspirations to make the step up to the main show.
So tensions between him and Katya must be high if they can’t go to the same destination together.
Katya’s solo outing comes after The Sun revealed that Neil is angry that she has stayed in the competition as he feels it is now beginning to affect his own career.
A show source said: “He’s keeping a dignified silence, but Neil is getting a bit annoyed now.

“He feels he’s the one being punished even though he’s the innocent party in all this.
“He is desperate to be a lead dancer, but sadly it looks like it is doing him no favours as he feels he’s being left out.
“The judges can see how Neil looks very downcast and embarrassed by it all.
“But frankly it was all his wife’s doing and yet he has been pushed to the back while she goes through to the next around.”
The married couple often dance together in pro routines, but instead they kept their distance on opposite sides of the dancefloor.
Instead Katya danced with Giovanni Pernice and Neil was partnered up with Amy Dowden for the raunchy number.
The Sun has also revealed how Strictly Judge Craig Revel Horwood, 53, fumed that Katya and Seann should’ve been sent home.
A show source said: “There was a lot of anger backstage on Saturday.
“The feeling from the professionals and judges was that Seann and Katya deserved to go — but they weren’t even in the bottom two.
“It feels very unfair on Katie and her partner Gorka.
“Craig was vocal in the last week about his thoughts on Katya and Seann and there was no change after the show.
“He made it quite clear he felt they should have gone and that, if it hadn’t been for poorer performances, they would.
“Craig told guests how dismayed he was that the ‘Terrible Two’, as he calls them, were given another chance.”
