Strictly Come Dancing star Katya Jones had a bit of a tough time on the 2018 series of her popular dance show, being thrust into the headines after a drunken kiss with celebrity partner Seann Walsh. But as we prepare to watch our favourite Strictly stars back on our screens during Saturday night's The Greatest Dancer, the good news is that the pair's marriage hasn't suffered. And actually, back in November, the couple were even talking baby plans in their future together.
The pro dancer told The Mail on Sunday that she would like to take time off from her hit TV show to have a baby one day, and also revealed that she has high hopes that Neil will be given a celebrity partner in the next series. She said: "I would love to have a baby in the near future, definitely. In a perfect world, Neil will hopefully get a partner on Strictly and he can stay on the show. Then I can go off and have our baby, and come back again afterwards. It's very hard if you think about it."

Katya continued to add that there was never going to be a right time for her to have a baby, but that both her and Neil "talk about it a lot." Katya and Neil have been married for five years, and are the proud owners of a pet dog called Crumbles. Their dog even has its own Instagram account, which is updated regularly by both Katya and Neil.
The scandal that rocked the couple's world happened a few weeks into the 2018 dance show. Katya and her dance partner Seann were pictured kissing after a drunken night out. This resulted in Seann being dumped by his girlfriend, Rebecca Humphries, but Neil stood by his wife, choosing to stay largely silent over the incident.

Shortly after the scandal, Katya and Neil put on a united front at the Pride of Britain Awards, marking their first joint red carpet appearance since hitting the headlines. The pair arrived together at the star-studded event as they posed for photos with their arms around each other. Seann, along with many of their fellow Strictly co-stars was also at the event, having been eliminated from the show two days earlier. Seann and Katya faced a dance off with Graeme Swann and Oti Mabuse, and said an emotional goodbye to the rest of the cast in a final dance on Sunday night.
