Strictly star ‘splits from property mogul eight years younger than them’ and ‘doesn’t want any distractions’
A Strictly Come Dancing star has reportedly split from their partner as the BBC dance contest continues.
Katya Jones and property mogul and ex-football player William Abbotts are said to have gone their separate ways.
It was claimed in July that the Russian-born dancer, 34, and William, 26, had been enjoying a number of dates together in Cheshire, where he is based.
However they were said to just be having ‘fun’ ahead of Strictly starting up again, when there would be a lot of demands for Katya’s time.
They have now split as Katya focuses aiming to push through to the Strictly final with ex EastEnders actor Nigel Harman.

A source told The Sun: ‘The union ran its course. Katya is single and focusing on the dance competition.
‘She knows she has a strong chance of making it to the final this year.
‘She doesn’t want any distractions.’
William is a former youth international footballer who played for Wales and Bolton before turning to property developing.
Katya and Nigel performed a Cha Cha Cha to I Was Made For Lovin’ You by KISS on Saturday night for the Halloween theme.
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Katya for comment.
It comes after back in May Katya revealed that she was on the hunt for a new husband.
The star spoke exclusively to the Mail Online at the Sport Industry Awards at Evolution in London where she told how she has booked an island hopping holiday in Greece where she hopes to meet someone.

During the chat she also lifted the lid on what she thinks about her ex husband Neil having a baby with his fiancé Chyna Mills – saying she was ‘happy for him’.
Speaking about her husband-hunting holiday she said: ‘I’ve booked an island hopping holiday in Greece in search of a new husband.
‘I’m after natural human interaction and a connection!’
She also spoke about how she has been finding online dating, saying: ‘They’re just experiences like you probably experience. Everyone is nice on them, until you meet them.’
Speaking about the social media messages she gets she added: ‘I must say – and maybe I’m lucky, but my Insta messages are pretty clean – there’s no d**k pics that’s for sure, which is a shame.’
She went on to speak about her ex Neil and Chyna’s baby news, and when asked if she is happy for him she sweetly said: ‘Yes, I am. I’ve already spoken about it, so you can google it. It’s all good.’
Chyna and Neil revealed in April that she was 13 weeks pregnant and the parents-to-be are set to welcome their newborn in the autumn.
Katya, who still works alongside Neil as a professional on BBC ballroom dance contest Strictly, married Neil in 2013 before they split in 2019.

Television personality Chyna took to Instagram to share a sweet snap of the pair to reveal she was pregnant.
Neil popped the question to Chyna as they enjoyed a romantic getaway in Bali recently.
He told Hello!: ‘I’d already planned to ask Chyna to marry me before we knew she was pregnant. Then we found out and I was like, “Oh, this is brilliant, everything is coming together”.’
Chyna admitted it took her a moment to accept the proposal as she wasn’t 100 per cent sure if it was genuine.
She said: ‘At first, I thought he was joking because we play jokes on each other all the time. I feel like I’m dreaming.’
Neil and Chyna took their relationship public in August last year when they enjoyed a romantic trip to Paris.
The reality star first caught Neil’s eye when she appeared on ITV2’s Love Island last summer.
The pair have since stepped out together at a number of red carpet events and share a number of loved-up posts to Instagram.
It comes two years after Neil’s previous relationship with South American dancer Luisa Eusse came to an end.
His split from Katya came after her kiss with her 2018 Strictly partner Seann Walsh.
