STRICTLY Come Dancing’s Neil Jones has been pictured leaving his house with a suitcase – and Seann Walsh style ginger wig.
The professional dancer smiled at the camera as he made his way down the street, offering no explanation for the bizarre hairpiece.
Neil is still yet to comment on photos of his wife, Katya Jones, passionately kissing her celebrity partner Seann, which were published earlier this month.
Katya insisted that her marriage to the red-headed hunk is fine following the cheating scandal, but Strictly fans aren’t convinced.
Earlier this week, viewers of the BBC One dance show were sure that Neil had refused to clap for Katya and the comic’s Quickstep on Saturday night.
Fans were convinced that show bosses « hid » Neil, 35, at the back of the group as Seann and Katya spoke to Claudia Winkleman after they had danced.
But Neil eventually appeared in shot and now an eagle-eyed viewer has spotted the fact he didn’t appear to clap the couple as they came up the stairs.
Sharing a screen grab on Twitter, they wrote: « Oops no clapping from Neil Jones #Strictly #awkwardmoment. »
While Neil may have already finished clapping by the time Seann and Katya reached the top the stairs, viewers still thought the whole scene was incredibly awkward.
The star was also spotted with a « face like thunder » two weeks ago, following Seann and Katya’s first dance together since the scandal broke.
Insiders previously told us that a deep rift had formed behind-the-scenes at Strictly, with the other professional dancers and celebrity contestants shunning Seann because they feel sorry for Neil.
Not only is Neil a hugely popular member of the Strictly family, he is also respected as a talented choreographer.
As a result, Katya and Seann are being shunned by some of their fellow Strictly stars.
A source told The Sun Online: « Katya is very much the star of the Jones household with Neil not having a celebrity partner on the show.
« But behind the scenes things could not be more different – Neil is a top bloke and an all round good egg.
« He’s also an extremely talented choreographer who lends his time and talent to helping lots of the celeb pairings choreograph their routines.
« He has the full support of everyone on the show. They really feel for him. »
It was also reported that Seann was snubbed after his dance-off victory at the weekend, with the other contestants ignoring his success as they rushed to say goodbye to eliminated Vick Hope.
