KATYA Jones has seen her star soar since joining Strictly Come Dancing back in 2016.
Since then the dancing pro has become a sought after TV star.
Born on May 12, 1989, Katya Jones, 33, is a pro dancer who was born Ekaterina Andreevna Sokolova in St Petersburg, Russia, to a Korean mother and Russian businessman father.
She started dancing when she was just six years old and then formed a partnership with her fellow dancer – and now ex-husband – Neil Jones in 2008.
Together they won the World Professional Latin Showdance Championships in 2015 – and they are also four times undefeated British National Professional Champions.
Away from dancing, she is known for her TV work including Celebrity MasterChef, and Celebrity Hunted.
Katya hit the big time when she joined Strictly in 2016.
Ed Balls was Katya's first partner and they had a good run, making it through to week ten thanks to their comedy performances before being eliminated.
In 2017 she was crowned the Strictly champion with dance partner and actor Joe McFadden.
In 2020 she made Strictly Come Dancing history by becoming the first celebrity to perform in a same-sex pairing after being partnered with Nicola Adams.
On August 18, 2019, it was revealed that Katya and her husband Neil Jones had split – ten months after the Russian dancer was pictured kissing dance partner Seann Walsh.
The pair, who married in 2013, confirmed the break-up on Instagram.
In a joint statement, they said: "Hi everyone. 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."
Since announcing her split from Neil, Katya has kept her romantic life under wraps.
The Russian beauty has remained tight-lipped on who she is dating.
