Neil Jones horrified as fan steals his photos and pretends to be him to pull women on Tinder


NEIL Jones may be looking for love on dating apps, but he’s defintely not on Tinder.

The Strictly Come Dancing star, 38, was “horrified” to find out someone is using pictures of him to try and meet women on the popular dating app.

A profile featuring his name and several pictures of the dancer popped up on Tinder, including of him holding a baby and posing topless.

The fake bio reads: “What can I say if you like tattoos, redheads and a dancer and a dog then let’s talk.

“P.s. that’s not my baby.”

Even though Neil joined other dating app Hinge earlier this year following his divorce from fellow dancer, Katya Jones, he does not have a Tinder profile.

A representative for Neil told The Sun Online: “This is not Neil’s profile, Neil does not use Tinder.

A source said: “Neil will be horrified to find out someone’s using his photos online to try and trick women.”

Neil and Katya  split in August last year, ten months after she was pictured kissing comedian Seann Walsh.

But it appears Neil was ready to get back on the dating scene after signing up to popular app Hinge.

According to the MailOnline, the Strictly hunk’s profile opens with the line: “The one thing I’d like to know about you… everything.”

He shared a string of smouldering snaps to his page, including one shirtless photo of himself in the bath.

Neil also posted a video on a hammock during a beach getaway.

The star later hinted at his job as a pro dancer by adding the sentence: “I know the best spot in town for… a dance.”

Despite calling it quits with Katya last year, Neil was still wearing his wedding ring in his profile.

In one snap posted to the app, the dancer is wearing a blue suit and shirt, with his silver band clearly visible.

Katya has also previously been pictured with her ring since their split.

Neil opened up to The Sun Online about his marriage ending.

Neil said: “We found that we’d grown apart like people do, so we were like, ‘OK, let’s go our separate ways’. We are lucky that we don’t have kids.

“It had nothing to do with what happened [with Seann].

“We were moving in different directions but we are friends again now. Katya is a great girl and I’ve got nothing bad to say about her.”

On the snaps that shocked the showbiz world, Neil — who has remained tight-lipped on his ordeal until last month — said: “We’re human, we all see things in completely different ways. We don’t all react the same way.

“That’s the thing with me. I’m in a good place and me and Katya get on really well now.

“For me it’s something that happened in the past. We spoke about everything back then. We had a situation but everyone was supportive, so we got through it.”

The pair, who married in 2013, confirmed their break-up on Instagram, writing: “Hi everyone. As our fans and loyal supporters you are really important to us and so we wanted to let you know some news. After 11 years we have made the mutual decision to separate.

“We will always love each other, just in a different way as friends. This will never change what a great team we make and we are really proud of everything we have achieved together.

“Our shared love of dance means we will keep working and dancing together as well as exploring individual projects. No matter what we do we will always support and respect each other.

“We wish one another every happiness and we will remain the best of friends. We are really looking forward to getting back to the ballroom and can’t wait to keep on dancing. Lots of love from us both xx.”
