STRICTLY Come Dancing's Neil Jones is set to get his FIRST celebrity partner – one year after the kissing scandal between Seann Walsh and Katya Jones.
It's a bittersweet time for the 37-year-old hunk Katya earlier today.
This evening, The Sun 29-year-old Katya has been reinstated into the main professional dancer line-up last year's indiscretion.
Neil wants to be join her there – for the first time since he joined the BBC One dance show in 2016.
He steps into the limelight at the expense of show favorite Gorka Marquez, 28.
Neil got the nod over Gorka because the Spanish star is not tall enough for many of this year's female celebrities. Gorka wants now one of the reserves.
A BBC spokesman said that the strict pairings would be "revealed in due course."
The exciting news comes just after Neil and Katya confirmed they were separating after 11 years together, and six years of marriage.
The couple appeared 10 months after Katya snogged her 2018 celebrity partner.
The former couple's romance was rocked when The Sun On Sunday pictured Katya snogging Seann outside a pub following a late-night rehearsal.

Neil stood by his wife at the time, but today announced in a joint statement: "Hi everyone." As our fans and loyal supporters you are really important to us the mutual decision to separate.
