A special message from MSN:

While Christmas is a time of joy for most of us, that's not the case for the UK's most vulnerable children and young people. We've partnered with giving platform Benevity to raise funds for two charities - the NSPCC and The Children's Society – to try to help change that. You can help make a difference - please donate now.

Strictly Come Dancing's Neil Jones has revealed why he thinks he's never been paired up with a celebrity on the BBC One show. 

The professional dancer – a participant in group dances during the 2016 series – was taking questions from fans on Instagram, and after one person asked him why he's never been paired with anyone famous, he chirpily replied: "I think it could be because I would win every year and that wouldn't be fair."

Jones was, however, partnered with field hockey player Hollie Webb in the Children in Need 2016 Strictly Come Dancing special (and lost).

Also via Instagram, Jones revealed that he and his wife Katya will not be taking part in the Strictly Come Dancing live tour next year.

Sharing a picture of himself and Katya, he wrote: "Hi guys so we won't be joining the @strictlycomedancinglive but we will be joining the new Strictly Pro tour in May."


However, he then teased: "And plus on top of that we have a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!! Coming tomorrow. I can't wait for you all to find out…"

The anticipation is positively killing us.

As everyone knows, the couple were at the centre of a scandal when Katya kissed her dancing partner Seann Walsh on a drunken night out earlier in the series.

Walsh's girlfriend publicly annihilated him by breaking up with him on social media, but Neil and Katya are still together.
