Neil Jones has cleared up any speculation on his sexuality.

The Strictly star put himself back on the dating market as he popped up on dating app Hinge in January earlier this year after his marriage to Katya collapsed.

On the look out for love, it's no wonder the redhead quashed any whispers about his sexuality.

Neither Katya or Neil have gone public with a new partner since their marriage broke down in August last year following the cheating bombshell.

But Neil has started his quest for love again by joining a dating app.
