Neil Jones is reportedly “horrified” to learn that his photos are being used by a fan on Tinder in a bid to land dates with women.
The 38-year-old Strictly Come Dancing professional has been looking for love ever since the break up of marriage to fellow Strictly star Katya Jones in August last year.
While Neil is thought to be trying dating apps as a way to find a perfect love match, it has been reported that he is not on Tinder and the profile using his details is a fake.
There are snaps of Neil posing topless on a Tinder profile, which also has photos of the Strictly favourite holding a baby.
The fake bio reads: “What can I say if you like tattoos, redheads and a dancer and a dog then let’s talk.
“P.s. that’s not my baby.”
Speaking to The Sun Online, a representative for Neil said: “This is not Neil’s profile, Neil does not use Tinder.”
A source also told the publication: “Neil will be horrified to find out someone’s using his photos online to try and trick women.”
MailOnline has reported that Neil had signed up to popular dating app, Hinge.
They revealed that Neil’s profile begins: “The one thing I’d like to know about you… everything.”
He later hints at his profession by adding: “I know the best spot in town for… a dance.”
Neil divorced Katya ten months after she was pictured kissing comedian Seann Walsh, who she was partnered with during the 2018 series.
Despite this, Neil did not cite it as a reason for splitting from Katya, telling The Sun Online: “We found that we’d grown apart like people do, so we were like, ‘OK, let’s go our separate ways’. We are lucky that we don’t have kids.
“It had nothing to do with what happened.
“We were moving in different directions but we are friends again now. Katya is a great girl and I’ve got nothing bad to say about her.”
