Katya Jones puts on brave face as she reunites with Strictly professionals for tour after being axed from main line-up

KATYA Jones put on a brave face as she reunited with her Strictly Come Dancing professional co-stars today ahead of going on tour.

The 29-year-old was seen dancing with husband Neil, 36, as they attended a photocall just days after she was axed from the main-up for the BBC show.

The Sun revealed last week that she had been demoted to substitute dancer on the BBC show, while regular reserve Neil was moved up the pecking order.

It came after Katya was caught snogging comedian Seann Walsh, 33, while they were partnered on the last series of the BBC1 show.

Putting the drama behind her Katya looked amazing as she matched  Oti Mabuse, 28, Nadiya Bychkova, 29, Dianne Buswell, 29 and Karen Hauer, 37, in gold outfits for the launch at Elstree Studios in Herts.

Strictly Come Dancing — The Professionals begins its 35-date run tonight at The Lowry Theatre in Salford, Manchester.

Speaking about the tour, Oti said: "We've all been rehearsing flat out for the last three weeks to bring the fans the most incredible live show.

"It features more than 50 dance routines, including many newly choreographed numbers, plus some great show-stopping moments that audiences will remember from the TV show.

"This tour will be two hours of Strictly Come Dancing at it's very best – we hope everyone will be blown away by the show we've put together."

Giovanni Pernice added: "We're really looking forward to the tour opening in Salford tomorrow night – we want everyone to see all the amazing surprises that we've got lined up for them.

"We are doing 35 shows across the whole of the country and we are really looking forward to performing for the fans – the atmosphere will be amazing.

"All 10 of us can't wait to get the show on the road – it's going to be FAB-U-LOUS!"

Strictly The Professionals UK Tour runs from May 3 to June 2.
