Neil Jones: 'Can't even say goodbye' Strictly pro's devastation as he speaks on 'sad fact' 1

Strictly Come Dancing star Neil Jones, 37, who split from Katya Jones, 30, announced the death of his uncle Johnny last month. The professional dancer took to Twitter and said he is unable to attend the funeral due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A nationwide lockdown has been put in place due to coronavirus pandemic, preventing groups from getting together.

Social distancing rules have determined that individuals stay indoors and to not attend mass gatherings including weddings, funerals, bars or restaurants in a bid to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Taking to Twitter, Neil shared an emotional message in view of his 85,000 followers.

He penned: “Today is my uncle’s funeral but the sad fact is we can’t even say goodbye. RIP Johnny and my thoughts are with my family. Thank you to everyone who stood out in his street just to pay their respects.”

Neil also took to his Instagram stories and shared a photo of his relative, where he penned another message.

The Strictly star captioned the snap: “It’s sad today that we can’t even say goodbye. You will always be in our thoughts. RIP Johnny.”

The heartbreaking news comes after Neil previously posted a message about his family member’s death on social media last month.

It is not clear what was the cause of his uncle’s death, as Neil did not share any further details.

Meanwhile, the Latin champion was cheekily called a “sexy minx” online by Strictly winner Kelvin Fletcher yesterday.

The former Emmerdale star and Oti Mabuse, 29, lifted the Glitterball trophy last year.

Neil posted a fun clip of himself dancing to Bob Marley’s One Love.

In view of his 230,000 Instagram followers, the dancer showcased his sultry moves in the short video.
