Strictly's Katya denies fan's claims she gave rival Catherine Tyldesley 'evil look' live on TV

STRICTLY Come Dancing's Katya Jones has denied claims she gave Catherine Tyldesley an "evil look" on live TV.

Viewers were convinced that Katya was left furious when Catherine and her partner Johannes Radebe got a score of 28.

But Katya, paired with BBC newsreader Mike Bushell for this series, has spoken out to debunk the claims.

She shared an image of herself stood behind Catherine on the show, adding the caption: "You make me laugh people!"

Fans had previously taken to Twitter to point out Katya's alleged dirty look.

One said: "I’m not sure if Katya was dishing Catherine Tyldesley a dirty look then or it’s just her resting b**** face!"

In recent weeks, Katya's' floundering perform­ances on Strictly Come Dancing have startled viewers.

Some cruel fans have even suggested she’s been hitting the bottle – but she has since denied it.

Friends claim she is still struggling to move on from her six-year marriage to fellow pro dancer Neil Jones.

The pair announced their break-up in August — ten months after Katya was snapped snogging her then Strictly dance partner Seann Walsh outside a bar.

Katya has also been attacked online by trolls and received vile death threats, as an ongoing campaign of abuse has gathered force behind the scenes. Not surprisingly, it has all taken its toll.

A source said: “Katya is a tough woman, with a thick skin but she is only human, and has been pushed too far.

"Neil has been her best friend for over ten years, and suddenly he is not really in her life any more — they exchange pleasantries on set, and that’s it.

“They’re both flirty people, and have had quite a bit of interest from other parties, but Katya isn’t ready to move on — she still wears her wedding ring.

The final straw came after she fell over on the show, and was bombarded by keyboard warriors accusing her of being drunk and unprofessional.

“People also brought up the past, and started accusing her all over again of being a home wrecker.

"It was deeply upsetting so she was emotional again last week, which led to more abuse.

"She seems caught in a vicious circle.”
