Strictlys Katya Jones says not in dance world as Nigel Harman makes faux pas

Strictly Come Dancing professional Katya Jones was forced to declare "Not in the dance world" after her partner Nigel Harman appeared to break a golden rule of dance.

Rehearsing for this weekend's opening live show, Katya, 34 hit out at EastEnders star Nigel over an issue with his footwear.

In a clip shared to her Instagram account, Katya wrote "We both learned something from this. Faux pas is a new expression for me" alongside a video in which she asked Nigel, 50: "So what have you done, Nigel?"

She continued: "This is your learning dancing process. So you put your straps on the on the inside your shoes – not the outside."

Adjusting his shoes, Nigel hit back: "It makes sense if you're riding horses or wearing jumpers or something. I don't think it's that much of a faux pas."

It prompted Katya to hit out: "But not in the dancing world. Who's shoes have you got by the way? Let's have a look inside."

Showing the label, Nigel, who departed Casualty earlier this year said: "It says 'Neil'. They've spelt my name wrong."

"Are you going to turn into a world champion dancer?" Katya asked, referring to her husband and fellow Strictly pro, Neil Jones.

Nigel laughed: "A world champion monster of a dancer. Heavily tattooed."

After being announced as a contestant in this year's offering of the hit BBC show, Nigel compared his forthcoming experience to "being thrown out of a plane".

But the actor, who uses his Instagram to promote meditation, admitted he has danced before, however.

"I used to go to Amateur Dramatics in South Croydon, a bit of tap and jazz," he told BirminghamLive. "I have a diploma in musical theatre… some shocking ballet dancing! I’m very good from the waist up, big face and good arms, waist down is shocking… no elasticity, nothing! When I left college I danced on a cruise ship for six months, not the best one I’ll be honest, 17 costume changes in a 35 minute show, that sort of thing!

"I did some musicals in London when I was first starting out, I would understudy the lead, so I had to dance well enough to do the ensemble stuff, but I would always head for the back. Very enthusiastic but not great. I haven’t really danced in 20 years though! Enthusiastic, with a bit of training. I’ve never learnt a step of Ballroom or Latin dancing."
