Katya shares a rich history with Neil Jones, a fellow professional dancer. They started their love journey in 2008, leading to their marriage in August 2013. During their six years together, the couple was awarded multiple dance championships, the highlight being the World Professional Latin Showdance Championships in 2015.
However, their seemingly perfect union came to an abrupt end in August 2019. This unexpected split followed a controversial incident where Katya was spotted kissing her 2018 Strictly partner, Seann Walsh. Following this incident, Katya and Neil released a joint statement, announcing their separation but also reaffirming their mutual respect and shared passion for dance.
Prior to her relationship with Neil, Katya had a romantic involvement with Igor Astafiev, a fellow dancer from her native Russia. Astafiev holds dear memories of Katya, claiming that she was his first real love. Her departure to the UK had such a profound impact on him that he decided to quit dancing altogether.
Pictures of Katya and comedian Seann Walsh sharing a passionate kiss made headlines during their 2018 Strictly Come Dancing stint. This incident led to a public apology from Katya.
Neil Jones moved on from the split, finding love in the arms of Love Island star Chyna Mills. Together, they have a daughter, Havana. Katya, showcasing her supportive nature, publicly congratulated them on their engagement and the birth of their child.
Since her separation from Neil, Katya prefers to keep her love life under wraps. However, there are rumors of her joining the celebrity dating app, Raya, in 2022. In July 2023, whispers linked her to property tycoon and ex-footballer William Abbotts, but both parties have remained tight-lipped, neither confirming nor denying the reports.
