Strictly Come Dancing‘s Neil Jones announced his split from ex-wife Katya earlier this year, so it was perhaps inevitable that he would be romantically linked to anyone he was paired up with on the 2019 series.
Now, Neil and his celebrity partner Alex Scott have addressed those rumours in an interview with Hello!, stating that they are kind of busy with the show.
“There’s nothing on our minds but the show,” Neil said. “We don’t have time to think about anything else.

“I’m single but I haven’t even thought about dating. Coming out of a long-term relationship I’m just focusing on Strictly.”
Alex also said that she’s single, adding: “It’s not like I need to find someone. I like things to happen organically and if someone comes into my life and we get on, then great. It’s not like I need to go searching for it.”
The duo also addressed comments that they resemble Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (aka the Duke and Duchess of Sussex), with Alex saying: “We’ve had that a lot. From the moment we were paired it’s like, look at those two, Harry and Meghan.”

Neil even joked that they could get jobs as royal lookalikes, which… oh dear. One season of I Wanna Marry “Harry” was enough, Neil.
Strictly Come Dancing 2019 continues on Saturday (October 19) at 6.40pm on BBC One.
