Strictly’s Neil Jones splashes out on new £10K motorbike ahead of show’s launch
Strictly Come Dancing pro Neil Jones has been flexing his style.
The star, who’s set to return to our screens during Saturday’s 2020 Strictly launch show, showed off his swanky new motorbike on his Instagram Stories.
Neil panned the camera around the immaculately shiny black vehicle, captioning the clip: “My brand new @indianmotorcycleuk Scout Bobber Sixty.
“Thank you to everyone @krazyhorselondon.”
The Indian Motorcycle website lists Neil’s new model at a cool starting price on £10,250.
Later in his Stories, he gave a look at his slick motorcycle helmet.
Neil’s all set for his return to the dance floor, fans eagerly awaiting the announcement of which celeb he’s partnered with.
The full line-up for 2020 has now been dropped, and looks to be the most star-studded yet.
Fans breathed a sigh of relief when the BBC confirmed Strictly would be going ahead in 2020 after the Covid disruption had raised doubts.
The Wanted’s Max George, actress Caroline Quentin and GMB’s Ranvir Singh are among the other big names that will be putting on their dancing shoes.
Jamie Laing will be there too, having sat out last year’s show due to injury.
Kelvin Fletcher stepped in at the last minute to take Jamie’s place, and went on to lift the Glitterball Trophy.
And Olympic champ boxer Nicola Adams is set to make history as she takes to the floor in the show’s first same-sex partnership.
She arrived to rehearsals last week wearing a smile, alongside dance partner and Neil’s ex Katya.
“They wanted to know if I wanted to be on the show,” Nicola said, “and I said, ‘Yeah, I’ll do it, but I want to dance with another female.'”
And Nicola has a simple solution for anyone who takes issue with a same-sex couple on the show – change the channel.
“This is 2020. We have to move with the times,” she remarked.
“I’ve been through my mum and dad separating, domestic violence, back injuries, having to look after my brother when I was 13 when my mum had meningitis.
“So someone’s going to comment on Twitter? It’s nothing, it won’t faze me at all.”
