STRICTLY Come Dancing fans were left cringing this evening as exes Katya and Neil Jones discussed their working relationship.
The pro dancers were taking part in a special show about their experiences on the BBC dance show – but also about how they got into dancing.
The Russian beauty, 29, and her Brit husband, 37, famously started dating after being paired up for a competition in Blackpool back in 2008.
Katya explained: “The biggest competition in our world in Blackpool but I didn’t have a partner so I went for a few try outs with a few boys and one of them was Neil.”
They announced their plans to divorce last month after they struggled for nine months to move on from her indiscretion with Strictly celeb Seann Walsh last October.
Those watching at home found it made rather uncomfortable viewing and took to Twitter to discuss it.
One person wrote: “It’s so awkward watching Neil and Katya talk about eachother.#StrictlyTheProfessionals #Strictly x”
Another added: “Ah, the Neil/Katya content. #strictly”
While someone else remarked: “ Anyone else finding this really cringe? #strictly.”
Katya and Neil were hit by the “Strictly Curse” when Katya was pictured kissing her dance partner Seann Walsh in the street outside a pub last year.
At the time the couple appeared to shrug off the controversy but in August this year they announced it was over.

In a joint statement, they told fans: “As our fans and loyal supporters you are really important to us and so we wanted to let you know some news.
“After 11 years, we have made the mutual decision to separate. We will always love each other, just in a different way as friends.”
