Strictly’s Katya Jones comes out of hiding as she self-isolates with coronavirus

November 16, 2020

Katya Jones has broken her cover after being diagnosed with coronavirus and being forced to leave Strictly Come Dancing.

The pro dancer was photographed leaning out of the window of her London home for a cigarette as she self-isolates after her Covid-19 diagnosis.

The 31-year-old was seen puffing on a cigarette and blowing the smoke out of her window, as she wore a casual outfit for her time in quarantine.

The beauty was forced off Strictly last week after celebrating becoming part of the BBC show's first same-sex pairing alongside boxer Nicola Adams.

Nicola had specifically requested a female partner if she were to do Strictly – as well as not wearing dresses to dance.

And viewers had been loving seeing the show move into the 21st century with the same-sex couple dancing some ballroom classics.

Nicola and Katya had been floating along in the middle of the leaderboard until their untimely exit, with their final dance scoring them a 19.

But on November 12, it was announced that they would be leaving the competition as Katya had tested positive for Covid-19.

Because of the government guidelines on self-isolation, neither she nor Nicola would be able to continue on with the show.

Gutted, Nicola said: "I'm absolutely devastated my Strictly journey has come to an end so soon. I had so much more to give and so many people to win this for!

"But I just want to say a huge thank you to Katya for being the best dance partner anyone could ask for. She pushed me way out of my comfort zone and it's been an incredible experience.

"I'm gutted to be out of the competition but in these unprecedented times and as frustrating as it is, the Covid measures in place are to keep everyone safe, and I'm doing what I can to help.

"I'll be spending the next 14 days isolating so I'd like to apologise in advance for the ridiculous amount of TikToks I'll be posting in my new found free time, when I'm not gaming!"

And Katya said: "Dancing with Nicola has been an absolute inspiration. She's given her all each and every week and we were so excited to create more dances in the competition.

"Of course, I'm devastated to leave this way but I've made a friend for life and loved every moment of this special journey.

"I'd like to wish good luck to all the remaining couples!"

Strictly continues on Saturday at 7.15pm on BBC One
