Katya Jones – I want a Strictly woman to dance with me
18th January 2020

Katya Jones wants to be the first woman on Strictly to dance with ­another woman.

The BBC show’s ITV Dancing On Ice made history with its first same-sex couple when pop star Ian “H” Watkins, 43, skated with professional partner Matt Evers, 43, earlier this month.

And Strictly Come Dancing has ­featured two men – Johannes Radebe, 32, and Graziano di Prima, 25 – dancing together in the last series.

But producers have yet to offer the same ground-breaking ­moment to the ladies.

And professional dancer Katya, 30, wants to change that.

She said: “I would love to dance with a woman on the show.

“I think creatively it would be really ­interesting and I love coming up with new ideas for stuff. So on that side I think it would be quite interesting.”

The Strictly Come Dancing tour launched this week in Birmingham.

Katya took to the floor with her ­estranged husband Neil, 37, showing there is no bad blood after their ­separation six months ago.

On the tour, Katya reunites with her celebrity partner from last year’s series, BBC Breakfast sports presenter Mike Bushell, 54.
