The show has been choreographed by Neil and tells the familiar-sounding story of “a boy from Britain and a girl from Russia who met, fell in love and overcame the odds to become dance stars.”

Katya and Neil’s relationship came under scrutiny following Katya’s shock snog with her celebrity Strictly partner at the start of this year’s series of the show.
Following their sexy snog, Katya and Seann issued a grovelling apology before continuing like normal on the show.
They were eventually kicked off three weeks later – after insiders told The Sun Online that the atmosphere backstage had turned toxic.

However, Katya continually insisted that her marriage to Neil was not affected by the kiss and even admitted that she wanted to start a family with him.
Neil hasn’t publicly commented on the scandal, although he did confess that he has had to “deal with a lot of s***” in a poignant Instagram post last month.
