Neil Jones wanted to protect wife Katya during Strictly kiss scandal

OHMYGOSSIP — Neil Jones’ first reaction when his wife Katya Jones told him she had kissed her ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ partner Seann Walsh was to make sure she was OK.
The ballroom professionals’ marriage was rocked last year when the Russian dancer was pictured locking lips with comedian Seann after a night out drinking in a pub, but Neil insists that when she told him what had happened his “natural” response was to want to protect his spouse.
In a joint interview on ITV show ‘Lorraine’, Neil, 36, said: “For me it was a major shock, and I appreciated that Katya told me before I saw it. ‘Strictly’ were fantastic with me and with us all, they were supporting us all and helping us.
“It was that shock factor, and then for me I was actually more worried about Katya because I could see what was going to happen, and I was like as long as she’s going to be OK. It was a natural reaction, of course [I love her] because we’ve been together for a long time.”
Katya, 29, accepts it was a tough moment in their relationship but insists she and Neil – who she married in August 2013 – are now stronger than ever.
She said: “There was lots of different emotions, of course, and we’ve gone through that. And I think now that we’ve moved on, you might even forgot how you felt at that moment … Look, 10 years of being together and that’s not for nothing. We’ve gone through so many things together.”
Neil added: “The trust is there.”
Katya has nothing but regret when she thinks about her kiss with Seann, 33, but insists it is time for people to move on from the smooch because she and Neil have.
She said: “[I regret it]. Of course, you just don’t realise the extent of the damage and the people you affect, families, my family, that moment you don’t. But then it’s the whole show, obviously that was horrible, all the professionals and dancers were constantly asked about it and that was unnecessary from me, absolutely.
“Even the fact that we’re still talking about it. It’s like, we’re over it, I think everyone else is over it, let’s just move on.”
Echoing his wife’s sentiment, Neil added: “I was getting messages on Instagram saying, ‘You’ve got to leave her’. But that’s what’s wrong, you know? I always feel that’s what’s wrong at the moment, everybody just looks at things, it’s a quick relationship, we’ve been together for 10 years. For me, it was just important, the understanding, I just needed to speak to Katya, I just needed to be with her in that moment. For me, I felt they overreacted.
“There’s worse things in the world going on at the moment. Every time it keeps coming up, anything happens and they mention it, I’m like, ‘Come on…’”
Asked by host Lorraine Kelly if she’s still in contact with Seann, Katya said: “No.”
To show the world that their marriage is very much on track, Neil and Katya are touring their own show ‘Somnium: A Dancer’s Dream’ which is inspired by their romance and their life together.
Explaining the inspiration behind the dance extravaganza, Neil said: “It’s based on our story. There’s moments in, within the story, it’s not about what happened there, it’s about a World Championships.”

This actor refuses to kiss actresses on screen

“Band of Brothers’’ and “Desperate Housewives’’ actor Neal McDonough says his religious beliefs — and undying devotion to his ex-model wife, Ruve Robertson — keep him from getting up close and personal with co-stars on screen, even if it costs him jobs and the hefty paychecks that go with them.

Kate Beckinsale spotted in Jack Whitehall’s hometown days after their steamy kiss

KATE Beckinsale was in lover Jack Whitehall’s home town today, just days after they were snapped kissing at the weekend.

Today Kate was back on British soil to shoot new movie Toff Guys with Hollywood hunk Matthew Mcconaughey.

Dressed casually in jeans and fluffy jacket, the actress looked in good spirits as she met crew on set.

She wore her long hair in a high high ponytail and shielded her eyes with a pair of oversized sunglasses.

But it looks like her trip to London might not be all work and no play, as the stunning actress was just miles from where here new beau Jack lives.

Jack and Kate hit the headlines after they were caught in a romantic tryst at the weekend.

The pair had enjoyed a meal at the restaurant Craig’s, a popular celeb hangout in Hollywood, before heading to the Blind Dragon karaoke lounge, where they were seen snogging.

They were then snapped entering The London Hotel at 3am looking very cosy.

Two months ago Kate, a divorced mother of one, was pictured with on-off American toyboy Matt Rife.

Like Jack, 23-year-old Matt is a stand-up comedian.

An onlooker said: “No one would expect someone like Jack to bag one of Hollywood’s hottest actresses. You couldn’t get a more unlikely romance.

“They were like a pair of loved-up teenagers and weren’t trying to hide their feelings.

“They were practically sitting on top of each other in the booth of the nightclub and were laughing with each other.

“As the night progressed, he seemed to be growing in confidence and put his arm around her and gave her a hug.

“Then he decided to put his hand around the back of Kate’s neck and pulled her across him, where they started to passionately kiss.”

Jack split from long-term girlfriend Gemma Chan, 35, star of Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them, last December, after six years together.

Kate’s 12-year marriage to American film director Len Wiseman, 45, ended in 2016 after he filed for divorce.

She shares 19-year-old daughter Lily with her former husband, the actor Michael Sheen, 49, who she split from in 2003.

Sealed With A Kiss: Sara Pope’s exclusive artrepublic giveaway

Want to win a very special original from the artist’s forthcoming showcase? Read on…

The eyes get a lot of credit when it comes to expressing emotion; they are the windows to the soul, could kill with just a look and sometimes they even go a little starry. But what about the part the rest of the face plays in showing, or even hiding, our feelings? One person who’s long considered this is artist Sara Pope, whose portraits don’t usually take in the whole face; instead, they focus specifically on a subject’s lips as they move through various emotions.

These glossy, glittery and highly saturated pouts, mimicking the slick finish of advertising and often named for the shade of lipstick worn by her models, have become Pope’s trademark. They’ve been applied to canvases, silk screened onto paper and also used to customise shoes. And she hasn’t remotely finished exploring this seductive subject, as you’ll see at her first full showcase at artrepublic Brighton this November.

Expect a series of originals that have never been shown in the UK, a brand-new lenticular print release and a very special homage to Pope’s work in fashion – a one-of-a-kind hand-painted leather jacket. This unique piece isn’t merely part of the showcase; it’s the starting point of an exciting event in its own right. Want to know why?

Sara Pope Jacket

We can now reveal that this original piece of Pope’s handiwork will be up for grabs at artrepublic. Not to buy though, and not through an auction, but via a good old-fashioned raffle! Albeit one with a twist. Because rather than throwing your name in the hat by purchasing a few rows of numbered paper tickets a la the local village fair, this exclusive tombola will only contain the names of those who buy one of Pope’s limited edition prints at the artrepublic gallery in Brighton before the showcase opens on 15 November 2018.

A fan of Pope’s work? Then read our lips: you don’t want to miss out on this massive event.

To find out more about Sara Pope’s showcase, the exclusive fashion-forward raffle and to discover more about the limited edition prints we have in the gallery, speak to one of our personal art advisors – just stop by artrepublic Brighton or give us ring on 01273 724829.

Christina Aguilera Wasn’t Upset Britney Spears Got All the Headlines After Their Madonna Kiss

Everybody remembers the infamous kiss Britney Spears and Madonna shared at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards, but not everybody remembers that Christina Aguilera was there too.

During an interview with Andy Cohen on SiriusXM’s Radio Andy, the television host asked Aguilera, 37, if she felt bothered that her role in the performance didn’t get the same kind of press, even though she also locked lips with the “Like a Virgin” singer.  

“It was weird,” Aguilera, who recently kicked off her Liberation Tour, admitted. “And you know why they cut it? The cut away to get Justin ’s reaction.”

Although Spears and Timberlake had already ended their relationship by the time the VMAs rolled around that year, the split was still fresh and everybody was curious to see how he would respond to the steamy show.

“I saw the newspaper the next day and it was like, ‘Oh — well I guess I got left out of that one,’ ” she added.

However, while some may have been bothered by the oversight, Aguilera says she didn’t mind.

“I mean everything happened so quickly back then and everything was in a whirlwind,” she explained. “But I had my own performance that night. It was “Fighter” and it was with Dave Navarro. It was a kickass performance. So I was okay with that,” the “Acceleration” singer shared.

“She can have her kiss, it’s okay,” she added.

Cohen also asked Aguilera if she was still close with any of her fellow famous former Mickey Mouse Club costars, which includes Timberlake, Spears, Ryan Gosling, and Keri Russell.

“I guess at this point, I don’t really keep in touch with any of them right now,” she shared, adding that she was very close with Timberlake during their joint Justified and Stripped tour in 2003.

However there is one of her former costars that Aguilera would like to reconnect with.

“I would love to reconnect somehow and have a tea date or something with Britney,” she admitted.

Continuing, she remarked, “I don’t know, I think that would be really fun after all these years, both being mamma bears now.”

On Sept. 25, Aguilera took the stage at the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida for the first stop of her Liberation Tour, named after her latest album — her first since 2012’s Lotus.

“What an amazing warm welcome back to the stage after 10 years (too many!),” Aguilera wrote on Instagram afterwards, captioning a gallery of photos from the tour. “ felt like coming HOME again!!”

“Thanks to all of you in Florida for your beautiful energy,’ she added. “I feel fulfilled and alive and cannot wait to see you Fighters in New Jersey on Friday. #LiberationTour.”
