Katya has continued to wear her ring following their split, and told The Sun: "It's too pretty to take it off. And it was probably expensive. I don't want to lose it so it stays on my finger. It's a beautiful ring. I don't have a problem with wearing it so I don't see why anyone else should." Neil has confirmed that the pair are still in a very good place, telling HELLO!: "Katya and I are still really good friends. We’ve been dancing together for 11 years.
