Seann Walsh jokes he and Katya were ‘in bed together’
Katya Jones has a history with the Strictly curse and now fans are wondering if it’s struck again.
The dancer’s partner on last year’s show, Adam Peaty, 27, announced he’d split from his baby mama and girlfriend Eiri Munro on Tuesday.
Katya, 33, and the Olympic swimmer had an undeniable chemistry on the show – with Adam even attempting a kiss when they were on stage.
His ex Eiri mocked the snog in a TikTok video, pretending to cry, writing: “watching your boyfriend almost kiss another woman live on TV.”
But fast-forward a year and she and Adam have called it quits after the swimmer apologised to the artist and their 23-month-old son George for ‘letting them down’.
Of course it’s not the first time Katya has found herself tagged with Strictly curse rumours.
In 2018 she was papped snogging Strictly partner Seann Walsh during a boozy night out.

Katya was married to pro dancer Neil at the time and Seann had a girlfriend, Rebecca Humphries.
The misdemeanour left the comic’s career in tatters while Neil and Katya decided to split a year later
Recalling the moment he found out the photos had been published, Seann said: “I left the wardrobe department and before I could order my first beer, my agent came over to and asked if he could have a word with me outside.

“I thought ‘he is going to tell me I have got Michael McIntyre’s Big Show! I had better act surprised!
“Turns out, I didn’t have to act surprised. We went into the BBC carpark, my agent looked over his glasses and said ‘about 20 minutes ago, they posted a photo of you kissing Katya outside a pub’.
“I was at that exact point that my life would turn upside down – the dream turned into a nightmare.”

Neil initially tried to support his wife with the pair going on Lorraine to speak about the incident.
‘There’s worse things in the world going on at the moment,’ said Neil. ‘Every time it keeps coming up, anything happens and they mention it, I’m like, “Come on….”‘
Katya added: ‘Even the fact that we’re still talking about it. It’s like, we’re over it, I think everyone else is over it, let’s just move on.’
She also confirmed she was no longer in touch with Seann.
Katya and Neil split after 11 years of marriage
However a year later Neil and Katya decided to split after 11 years of marriage.
Neil, who will be back on Strictly in September, is now said to be dating Chyna Mills, fresh from her stint as a bombshell on Love Island.
The pair were papped in Paris on the weekend, reportedly looking “very loved up”.
Meanwhile, Katya will also be strutting her stuff on the Strictly stage next month.
Her partner is yet to be revealed…
